Former England manager turned BT Sport pundit Glenn Hoddle has been discharged from hospital, and is recovering at home after having a heart attack in October.
Hoddle, who managed England between 1996 and 1999, had the football world fearing for his health when it was confirmed he had been rushed to hospital at the end of last month, and worse still when it was revealed he had suffered a cardiac arrest.
However, in some positive news, the BBC report that he is now at home recuperating, with a spokesman saying that Hoddle has 'responded well' to treatment as he left the care of hospital staff.
"Doctors have outlined that rest is paramount for Glenn now," the spokesman said. "With that in mind, his family ask politely that their privacy is respected and that Glenn is given time to recover fully.
"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."
He soon after retired as a player, and took over as England boss in 1996, and took the team to the 1998 World Cup, losing on penalties to Argentina in the second round.
