Tottenham Hotspur have been without their star man, Harry Kane, for some time now, with the striker picking up a nasty injury on the first day of the new decade.

Kane ruptured the tendon in his left hamstring against Southampton in the 75th minute when stretching to tap home a ball from an offside position.

The England captain then underwent surgery on the injury and has been in rehabilitation ever since, although a return to full training is seemingly close.

Kane told the club website that his rehab is going really well and that, if first-team training was still taking place, he would be looking to return within two or three weeks.

As it happens, the players are all carrying out their own personal training regimes in their homes as the UK is on a strict lockdown and the Premier League has been suspended due to the spread of Coronavirus.

Kane said: “I’m good. From a rehab point of view and personal point of view, I’m doing really well. I’m at a good stage now and just working hard, doing a lot of recovery, a lot of rehab and just waiting to see what happens to the season.

“Other than that, my family is well, and obviously everyone is thinking about coronavirus at the moment and it’s a time to be together, to stay safe and hopefully everything will be alright.

“I’m not too far away, I’d normally hope to be back with the team in two or three weeks’ time. I’m at a good stage, pretty much doing everything, now it’s about building up my fitness. So from my personal point of view, I’m in a good place.

“It’s such a strange situation, no-one has been in this situation before. Like anything, you have to take the positives out of it and do what you can. So far, me and the family are well, and I’ll continue to work hard, work in the gym, work from home and do what I can. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
