Glenn Hoddle rushed to hospital after collapsing at BT Sport studios

The former England manager was taken ill during the football results shows on BT, which has been cancelled as a result of Hoddle's illness.

Hoddle's former England teammate and BT Sport colleague Gary Linker tweeted: "Hugely worrying news that Glenn Hoddle collapsed at the BT studios earlier".

We would like to send our best wishes to Glenn and all his family at this hard time. Get well soon, Glenn'.

"The condition is serious but Glenn is now receiving specialist treatment and responding well", the statement read.

He won the FA Cup and UEFA Cup with Spurs and also played for Monaco, Swindon and Chelsea.

BT Sport has sent out its support saying: 'The thoughts and wishes of everyone here at BT Sport are with Glenn and his family at this time.

'Extremely dangerous' Hurricane Willa barrelling towards Mexico
Hurricane Willa, churning off central Mexico's Pacific coast, strengthened on Sunday night to a unsafe Category 4 storm, the U.S. Tourist resorts on Mexico's Pacific coast are bracing for 160mph winds as Hurricane Willa barrels towards them.

"We at BT Sport add to that and we are standing alongside you Glenn and sending you the very best for a speedy recovery".

Tottenham and Chelsea also sent their best wishes to their former player and manager, as did England captain Harry Kane who said his thoughts were with Hoddle.

Hoddle, one of the finest players of his generation, had appeared on BT Sport where he was filmed smiling while playing football tennis with other former professionals shortly before his collapse. Our thoughts are with you'.

Hoddle became player-manager at Swindon and Chelsea, and is credited with turning the west London side into a cosmopolitan outfit by signing Netherlands great Ruud Gullit, who went on to replace him as boss at Stamford Bridge.

His time as manager ended controversially when he was sacked for suggesting disabled people were being made to pay for the sins of past lives.

The couple got together in 1997 after he walked out on his first wife, Anne, the mother of his three children - Zoe, 35, Zara, 32, and Jamie, 26.
