The Tottenham legend fell ill on his 61st birthday and only survived thanks to receiving CPR from a quick-thinking member of the TV crew.

Specialists at St Bartholomew's Hospital then decided the best course of action was surgery, with Hoddle responding well in intensive care in the days afterwards.

Now his family have issued a statement to his supporters giving a positive update on his recovery.

The ex-Chelsea and Swindon boss has now been released from hospital to continue his return to health from the comfort of his own home.
