Update: Former England manager Glenn Hoddle remains in a serious condition in hospital after suffering a heart attack, his spokesman said in a statement reports The Guardian.

Hoddle collapsed in a London TV studio on his 61st birthday. A source close to the family told a former teammate that Hoddle had been “close to death” and was saved by the quick action of an employee at BT Sport who knew how to use a defibrillator.

“Glenn remains in a serious condition in hospital after suffering a heart attack yesterday. He continues to respond well to treatment,” said a spokesman for Hoddle. “The family are grateful to everyone in the football family – and beyond – that have sent kind messages of support, they are very much appreciated.

“In particular, Glenn and his family would like to publicly thank the BT Sport staff that treated him immediately on set following his collapse. Glenn is now in the care of the professional NHS medical services, who have also been exemplary in helping him and the family during the last 24 hours.

“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.”

Hoddle, a regular pundit who was in the London studios to preview the match between Brighton and Wolves on Robbie Savage’s show, collapsed after the show and was taken to hospital after receiving attention from colleagues.
