Harry Kane leads Tottenham stars back to training amid coronavirus lockdown

Harry Kane was among the Tottenham stars who returned to training on Tuesday as Premier League clubs begin to reopen their HQs during the coronavirus lockdown.

Top-flight training grounds were closed last month due to the global crisis which has wreaked havoc on football schedules all over the globe.

And, although the 2019/20 Premier League season is still suspended and facing an uncertain future, discussions are ongoing over an eventual resumption following the shutdown.

Arsenal were the first club to return to training and now their north London rivals Tottenham, as well as other clubs including West Ham and Brighton, have followed suit.

Indeed, Spurs' players have been allowed to return to their training ground, but social-distancing measures will be respected at the Enfield Training Centre.

England captain Kane was among the stars seen arriving at the training ground.

Spurs have found themselves embroiled in controversy during the lockdown after manager Jose Mourinho and several first-team players appeared to flout Covid-19 guidelines.

The north London club have since had to remind players and staff of their responsibilities.

And on announcing their return to training in a statement on Monday, the club reiterated their desire to follow social distancing rules.

"The club shall be making a limited number of pitches available at our training centre for members of our first team squad to use for individual running sessions on a strict rotational basis," the statement read.

"No more than one player per pitch will be permitted at any one time to undertake on-pitch exercise, with only a restricted number of the squad coming to the training centre each day.
