Glenn Hoddle is reported to be in a serious condition in hospital after falling ill at a TV studio this morning. He received immediate medical attention on the set and was subsequently transferred by paramedics to hospital in London. In the meantime, keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Hoddle had to be given mouth-to-mouth by a crew member amid fears that he had died, according to The Sun.

The Football Association, via the England team account, wrote: 'Worrying news. "Everyone at BT Sport and, I'm sure, right across football, will wish the lovely fella the very, very best".

Daniels, who is also a special constable, said his first-aid training "kicked in" leaving him no time to worry if Hoddle, 61, would survive.

England captain Harry Kane also sent a message, in conjunction with Tottenham, writing: "Thoughts are with Glenn Hoddle".

Manchester City beat Tottenham easily at Wembley at the end of last season and, with its wide open spaces, I think it is a stadium that suits them.
