Hoddle required major lifesaving surgery as a result.

And he underwent a heart bypass operation after being fitted with a stent.

Hoddle has since told SunSport how he “died for 60 seconds” during his cardiac arrest, smashing his head on the floor and breaking seven ribs after collapsing in front of fellow pundit Robbie Savage.

Hoddle was helped by sound engineer Simon Daniels before being whisked off to hospital.

And he also credits wife Lisa with giving him the strength to recover.

Hoddle has since revealed he believes he inherited his heart condition from his father, leading him to seek therapy.

But the former England boss appears to be taking it in his stride following last night’s European action.

Spurs survived a City blitz at the Etihad to progress to the Champions League semis on away goals after a 4-4 aggregate draw.
