Very very sad news!  I hope everyone understands how big a name he is in the English game and the potential loss at such an early age.

Anyone know what's actually wrong with him? His football opinions aside he always came across as a decent bloke, hoping for his speedy recovery.

Don't know? collapsing like that could be something to do with his heart but that is only a guess, the main thing is I hope he pulls through ok.

Just seen it's his 61st birthday today too, Jesus. 

Confirmed it was a collapse too, deary me.

Collapse probably means a heart attack or a stroke. 

Poor bloke.

Are there no updates?

Not that I can see, more likely family comes first with news than the media.

Personally think he's always come across well on the tele when he's talking about football. Not sure about his views outside of football though...

Hope he gets well soon anyway

Hoping for the best for Hoddle. Sad to hear considering he's only 61 and even so that it was his birthday today.

Get well soon, Glenn!

No idea if this is connected at all but his brother did die of a heart attack in his 50’s/60’s. My Dad brought a car off him. Lovely bloke from what I remember.

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle is in serious condition in hospital but responding well to treatment after suffering a heart attack, his spokesman said on Sunday.

Hoddle, who spent the bulk of his playing career with Tottenham Hotspur and played for Chelsea, French club AS Monaco and Swindon Town, was working for BT Sport as a pundit on his 61st birthday on Saturday when he collapsed.

"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."

Glenn Hoddle: Former England boss at home following the cardiac arrest

24 minutes ago | Football

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle is at home recuperating following his cardiac arrest in October.

Hoddle collapsed at the BT Sports studios on 27 October, his 61st birthday, and later underwent surgery.

A spokesman said Hoddle had "responded well to treatment" and had left St Bartholomew's Hospital in London in order to continue his recovery.

"Doctors have outlined that rest is paramount for Glenn now," the spokesman continued.

Hoddle overwhelmed by support - family

The sound engineer who used CPR says he is 'no hero'

"With that in mind, his family ask politely that their privacy is respected and that Glenn is given time to recover fully.

"The care that Glenn received from St Bartholomew's Hospital was exemplary. His family would like to thank the hospital staff and the many people who have sent supportive messages."

Hoddle is considered to have been one of the best players of his generation, winning the FA Cup twice and the Uefa Cup with Tottenham and also having spells with Monaco, Swindon, and Chelsea. He was capped 53 times by England.

He was a player-manager at Swindon and Chelsea before becoming England manager in 1996. He also managed at Southampton, Tottenham, and Wolves.

Glenn Hoddle jokes Spurs game 'wasn't good for my recovery'

1 hour ago | Tottenham

Ex-Spurs player Glenn Hoddle joked that his recovery from cardiac arrest was not helped by the dramatic way they made the Champions League last 16.

Hoddle collapsed at the BT Sports studios on 27 October, his 61st birthday, and later underwent surgery before returning home to recuperate.

Spurs scored a late goal to secure a draw at Barcelona and go through.

"That just wasn't good for my recovery! But a great performance well-done boys, deserved to win," tweeted Hoddle.

Lucas Moura's 85th-minute equalizer at the Nou Camp saw Spurs book a place in the knockout stages as they completed an unlikely turnaround in Group B, having collected just one point from their first three games.

Tottenham needed to match or better Inter Milan's result at home to PSV Eindhoven and had faced elimination when Mauro Icardi cancelled out PSV's early goal in a game that ended 1-1 in Italy.

Hoddle's comment, made the morning after Tottenham's game in Spain is the first time he has posted a message on social media since suffering his cardiac arrest.

He is considered to have been one of the best players of his generation, winning the FA Cup twice and the Uefa Cup with Tottenham and also having spells with Monaco, Swindon, and Chelsea. He was capped 53 times by England.

He was a player-manager at Swindon and Chelsea before becoming England manager in 1996. He also managed at Southampton, Tottenham and Wolves.
