The club  have apologised for what they’ve called a “wholly unacceptable” survey question that asked fans in the United States whether “a woman’s place is in the home?”.

The survey in question, which was sent as an email, was headed “Calling all US Spurs fans: tell us what you think”.

Like most surveys responses available to the question ranged from “definitely agree” to “definitely disagree”.

The survey was compiled by a third party on behalf of the club and those at Tottenham are understood to be angry about the situation.

The question has been subsequently removed, with the club saying they “apologise to anyone offended by its initial inclusion”.

A spokesperson for the the club added: “The inclusion of this question in a club survey was wholly unacceptable and a regrettable oversight”.

The email sent , which had a club crest at the top, read: “We have an ongoing commitment to learn more about the specific requirements of our loyal fans and everyone who interacts with the club.

“Therefore, we’re seeking your help to increase our understanding of what you think about Spurs and football/sport in general.”
