2010 Grand Punto Clutch went soft

Hi guys
Drove to work this morning, no hassle. Leaving work, I started car, pulled off, no hassle.
1km down the road, I battled to get from 4th into 5th - felt like a rubber barrier where a smooth slot/ engage should be. Fast discovered that this now included all gears (in rush hour).
Pulled over and found that clutch pedal had gone VERY soft, almost no resistance, and only then in the last 1/4 of movement.
When the car is off, gear-lever slips into all gear 'slots' as normally expected, despite the now-soft pedal, but start the car and the problem persists.
Is this a common occurrence for Grande Punto 2010? Only done 43 000 km (26 000 miles), as it belongs to my sister who works on cruise-liners. I just drive it to work once a week to keep it in fair condition.
I saw on other posts that there were clutch/cylinder issues on pre-2011 cars, could this be the same issue? Everyone on those threads claimed stiff pedal and noisy gears - which this isn't.
