The former Tottenham midfielder collapsed on Saturday morning in the BT Sport studios and was emergently taken to hospital for treatment.

“He continues to respond well to treatment. The family are grateful to everyone in the football family – and beyond – that have sent kind messages of support, they are very much appreciated.”
“In particular, Glenn and his family would like to publicly thank the BT Sport staff that treated him immediately on set following his collapse.”

“Doctors have advised the most important thing for Glenn is time to rest. Therefore, his family have reiterated the request for their privacy to be respected during this period.”
Different football followers, fans and former teammates have immediately taken time to wish Hoddle a quick recovery.
