Football great Glenn Hoddle was taken to the hospital on his 61st birthday after the former England player and manager fell "seriously ill" in a TV studio on Saturday.

One of those who played under him, Rio Ferdinand, said recently the Three Lions would have won a World Cup if he had stayed on.

Hoddle spent time working at QPR during the 2014-15 season when Harry Redknapp was manager at Loftus Road.

Former England team-mate Gary Lineker wished Hoddle well, writing on Twitter: "Hugely worrying news that Glenn Hoddle collapsed at the BT studios earlier".

"We at BT Sport add to that and we are standing alongside you Glenn and sending you the very best for a speedy recovery".

"He was a schoolboy at Tottenham when I was there and he was the star player we all looked up to and could never get near".

The ex-midfielder earned 58 caps for England before going on to manage the national side from 1996 to 1999.
