Harry Winks has given an insight into the current training regime at Tottenham Hotspur amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The club took the decision to cancel first team training sessions at Hotspur Way last week and will only return following advice from the government and Premier League (Standard).

Winks has revealed that each player has been given instructions by the club’s nutrition team on what they should be eating as part of a devised programme.

The squad are in regular contact with head coach Jose Mourinho and his backroom staff to check on their progress while the government’s stringent social distancing measures are in place to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

After a slow start to life under Mourinho, Winks found himself as a first-team regular following the injuries to Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele (transfermarkt).

Winks told the official Spurs site: “The coaching and fitness staff drop us messages and stay in touch in case I have any questions. We also have instructions from the nutrition team on our food and a programme on that.

“We’ve just got to watch what we eat. I’m cooking as well – soups, a lot of salad, eggs, and a little bit of pasta.

“We’ve all been told (by the government) that we can go out for one piece of exercise a day, so I’ve been walking around where I live and other than that, staying home, relaxing and at the same time, staying fit. I’ve got a ball here as well so I’m out in the garden having a kick around!”

The club have also confirmed that from Monday the squad will be holding live training sessions with the club’s coaching team.
