Former England manager Glenn Hoddle 'seriously ill in hospital'



Former England manager Glenn Hoddle has fallen ill and been taken to hospital after preparing to appear on television.
 
Hoddle fell ill shortly after he began his punditry duties on BT Sport and the show was cancelled as a result.
 
 
Broadcaster Jake Humphrey, who works alongside Hoddle for BT, broke the news on Twitter.


He wrote: "Our friend & colleague Glenn Hoddle was taken seriously ill at the BT Sport studio this morning.


"For that reason there will be no @btsportscore - but we will be live as usual for the 5.30 ko at Leicester. Everyone of us is right with you Glenn, sending love & strength."

The England national team sent their well wishes to Hoddle, tweeting: "Worrying news. Get well soon, @GlennHoddle - we're all behind you."
