‘Glenn, are you OK?’ Video of Hoddle celebrating Tottenham winner goes viral

Nobody was more excited than Glenn Hoddle at Tottenham's remarkable comeback victory which sent them into the Champions League final.

Hoddle, who spent more than a decade at Spurs as a player, was a studio guest for BT Sport alongside Rio Ferdinand as Spurs came from three goals down against Ajax to seal a semi-final victory with a stoppage-time winner.

In videos of the pair, Ferdinand can be seen hitting Hoddle – who had a cardiac arrest in October – in the chest as they celebrate wildly alongside host Gary Lineker.

Gradually the pair start to express concern for the former England manager with Ferdinand repeatedly asking "are you OK?", while Lineker suggests he should sit down.

Hoddle later referenced his health issues as he talked about the game, saying: "I'm so glad I'm still around to see this."
