Former England manager Glenn Hoddle has been taken to hospital after falling ill shortly after appearing as a pundit on BT Sport on Saturday.

Hoddle, who turned 61 on Saturday, was preparing for work in his role as a television pundit for BT Sport when he was taken to hospital.

The broadcaster Jake Humphrey said that Hoddle, who is celebrating his 61st birthday today, was taken "seriously ill" on Saturday morning.

"We're right with you, Glenn".

The former England manager - who also played for Tottenham, Monaco, Swindon and Chelsea - was inundated with messages from well wishers.

"The condition is serious but Glenn is receiving specialist treatment and responding well", a spokesman said. Glenn's somebody I've known from the age of 12 or 13.

'One guy from BT Sport was fantastic - he was first aid-trained and he was excellent.

Former England and Tottenham goalkeeper Ray Clemence urged Hoddle to "stay strong" and Chris Waddle, another of Hoddle's former worldwide team-mates, said: 'Get well soon, Glenn. Thoughts are with him and his family. All our thoughts are with Glenn and his family'.

Albion boss Hughton said: "It's very sad news".

Hoddle played alongside Chris Waddle at club and worldwide level and he tweeted: "Get well soon Glenn our thoughts are with you".

Hoddle went on to manage England after spells in charge of Swindon and Chelsea and took them to the 1998 World Cup finals where they reached the second round bowing out on penalties to Argentina.

"We hope he's able to come through this situation in his life".

Hoddle went on to manage Southampton, Tottenham and Wolverhampton before turning to punditry.

'Glenn's family are with him and would like to thank everyone that has sent their support'. He has three children: Zara Marie, Jamie Glenn and Zoe Ann.
