- Glenn Hoddle taken to hospital after falling ill in the BT Sport studio.
- Hoddle formerly worked as a player and manager for Chelsea.
- Our thoughts are with Glenn and his family at this difficult time.
Former Chelsea player and manager Glenn Hoddle has been taken to hospital after collapsing in the BT Sport studio earlier on Saturday.
Hoddle was at Chelsea for three years between 1993 and 1996. He made 39 appearances as a player, before leading the Blues to the FA Cup final as a manager.
The ex-England boss has worked as a pundit and commentator for various TV channels since his retirement. It was at the BT Sport headquarters where Hoddle fell ill today.
Our friend & colleague Glenn Hoddle was taken seriously ill at the BT Sport studio this morning.
For that reason there will be no @btsportscore – but we will be live as usual for the 5.30 ko at Leicester.
Everyone of us is right with you Glenn, sending love & strength ❤️

Today marks Hoddle’s 61st birthday. It should have been a day of celebration for Hoddle covering the game that he lives for, but his health has taken a turn for the worse.
Our thoughts are with him and his entire family. The Chelsea community tragically lost Ray Wilkins earlier this year. Losing another cherished former servant would be heartbreaking.
We’ll be keeping tabs on this situation as it develops, so keep an eye out for further updates.
