The fam­ily of Glenn Hod­dle have thanked TV staff whose quick re­ac­tions helped the 61-year-old when he col­lapsed on Satur­day morn­ing.

Si­mon Daniels, a mem­ber of the pro­duc­tion crew and a spe­cial con­sta­ble, gave Hod­dle im­me­di­ate med­i­cal at­ten­tion when the for­mer Eng­land man­ager suf­fered a heart at­tack at the BT Sport stu­dios shortly af­ter ap­pear­ing on Rob­bie Sav­age’s show.

Hod­dle is in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion but is re­spond­ing well to treat­ment.

A spokesman for Hod­dle said: “Glenn re­mains in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion in hos­pi­tal af­ter suf­fer­ing a heart at­tack yesterday. He con­tin­ues to re­spond well to treat­ment.

“In par­tic­u­lar, Glenn and his fam­ily would like to pub­licly thank the BT Sport staff that treated him im­me­di­ately on set fol­low­ing his col­lapse.”
