Than man who saved Glen Hoddle’s live has revealed he broke seven of the former footballer’s ribs while giving him CPR.

After a period of time in intensive care, the now-65-year-old made a full recovery and returned to TV screens.

‘I broke seven of Glenn’s ribs, so I’ve got that on my CV,’ he said, via The Sun.
‘I could tell that Glenn was seriously unwell. Just being able to do CPR and do it quickly, you give someone a chance of making it.’
Daniels only appeared on the show with Hoddle on Friday because he was working in the studio next door to the Good Morning Britain filming on fellow ITV show Lorraine.
He surprised Hoddle by joining him on the show alongside heart surgeon Stephen Edmondson.
The three men shared jokes and stories with Hoddle visibly full of emotion during the interview
Hoddle was visibly full of emotion upon the arrival of Daniels, saying: ‘You can imagine how emotional I am with these two guys sat here.
‘I’m only here because of Steve and Simon. These guys saved my life.’
The three men shared more laughter as they were questioned by presenters Kate Garraway and Ben Shepherd.
Hoddle remains a popular pundit on BT Sport after the incident.
