Ex-England manager is back at home after health scare.

Former England boss Glenn Hoddle is recovering at home following heart surgery, a family spokesman has said.

Hoddle, 61, collapsed at the BT Sport studios last month after a cardiac arrest and was later admitted to St Bartholomew's Hospital.

A spokesman said: "After being taken ill on Saturday, October 27, Glenn received specialist care at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London.

"To aid his recovery from a cardiac arrest, Glenn underwent surgery. He responded well to treatment and is now at home recuperating from the procedure.

"The care that Glenn received from St Bartholomew's Hospital was exemplary. His family would like to thank the hospital staff and the many people who have sent supportive messages.

"Doctors have outlined that rest is paramount for Glenn now. With that in mind, his family ask politely that their privacy is respected and that Glenn is given time to recover fully."

Former Tottenham and England midfielder Hoddle suffered a cardiac arrest after appearing on BT Sport as a pundit on his 61st birthday.

A member of BT Sports production crew, special constable Simon Daniels, used his first aid training to help Hoddle in the moments after he collapsed.

Daniels gave Hoddle immediate medical attention and his swift actions were praised by both Hoddle's family and also Assistant Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police Nikki Ross, who said he had been "incredible".

Hoddle won 53 caps for England from 1979-88, while as manager he took his country to the 1998 World Cup finals in France, qualifying on the back of a memorable 0-0 draw away to Italy.

A two-time FA Cup winner with Tottenham, Hoddle also had success on the continent, lifting the UEFA Cup with the London club in 1984 and the Ligue 1 title in Monaco in 1988.

He had spells as a player/manager with both Swindon and Chelsea and also had stints as manager at Southampton, Tottenham and Wolves.
