Former England manager Glenn Hoddle was rushed to hospital today after collapsing in the BT Sport studio on his 61st birthday.

"Our friend and colleague Glenn Hoddle was taken seriously ill at the BT Sport studio this morning, " presenter Jake Humphrey said on his Twitter account.

Hoddle's former England teammate and BT Sport colleague Gary Lineker 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.

A spokesman for the Tottenham legend said: "The condition is serious but Glenn is now receiving specialist treatment and responding well". Get well soon, Glenn'.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton, a long-time team-mate of Hoddle's at Spurs, said: "It's very sad news".

The Hayes-born former Chelsea manager, who also played for the Blues and later had a spell coaching at QPR, now works as a pundit.

The ex-midfielder earned 58 caps for England before going on to manage the national side from 1996 to 1999.

"The thoughts of everybody at Wolves are with you".

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.

He recovered from the scandal and later went on to manage Southampton, Tottenham and Wolverhampton Wanderers before quitting management in 2006 and beginning a new career as a television pundit.

"His family are with him and would like to thank everyone for their support".

He has three children Zara, Jamie and Zoe from his first marriage.
