Glenn Hoddle health: Tottenham legend ‘forever being checked’ after quadruple bypass

Fitness & Health:

The former England football manager Glenn Hoddle, 64, was taken into the hospital back in 2018, after collapsing from a cardiac arrest in a BT Sport studio. Cardiac arrest describes the heart malfunctions and sudden stop of heart beat unexpectedly.

Glenn added: “What is so frightening is that I felt OK on the day. I didn’t feel dizzy. I didn’t feel hot. I didn’t feel ill.”

The cardiac arrest happened whilst he was doing a shift at BT Sports Score, instead of attending a birthday party he had booked with his family.

The football star said he owes his own life to the sound engineer on the set that day called Simon Daniels.


Without Simon, “I certainly wouldn’t be sitting here now,” Glenn said on GMB.


Glenn explained: “Without Simon’s quick reactions, and what he did for me, he kept me alive, the seven minutes I was gone.

“He was doing such a good job. Even the ambulance guys said ‘you continue doing what you doing’.

“He broke seven of my ribs, which was not so good,” said the former England football manager laughing on the morning show.

“But I owe him my life,” he added.

After being asked how he feels now, the football legend responded: “Yeah it’s good, I’ve done forever sort of being checked, consultations with the specialist.

“I talk about that in the book, the struggle afterwards and the help I’ve had, from all the loved ones and people close to me was quite incredible.”

The new book Glenn is referring to is called Playmaker: My Life and the Love of Football, released this year.

He added smiling: “Now I’m back to playing my golf so that’s important.”

Cardiac arrest is different from a heart attack. It usually happens because of a problem with your heart’s electrical system.

This disrupts the heart’s pumping action and ceases blood flow, the Mayo Clinic explains.

The signs are immediate and drastic and include:

  • Sudden collapse
  • No pulse
  • No breathing
  • Loss of consciousness.

It’s crucial to call 999 or seek emergency medical help if you experience any of these signs, Mayo Clinic advises.
