Former England manager Glenn Hoddle has been hospitalised after he took ill on his 61st birthday on Saturday.
Hoddle fell ill shortly after he began his punditry duties on BT Sport — the show was cancelled as a result.
BT presenter Jake Humphrey said Hoddle was “taken seriously ill at the BT Sport studio this morning”.
He added on social media: “Everyone of us is right with you Glenn, sending love and strength.”
Chelsea — who Hoddle managed — tweeted a message of support.
“Our thoughts are with former Blues boss Glenn Hoddle who has been taken seriously ill on his 61st birthday. We’re right with you Glenn.”
Hoddle, capped 53 times for England and was a star midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur, was considered to be one of the best players of his generation.
