While many clubs have been directly affected by the coronavirus pandemic, Tottenham Hotspur can consider themselves to be relatively fortunate.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi both tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month which led to both squads and backroom staff having to self isolate (BBC).

Leicester City, Everton and Watford also saw members of their respective squads having to self isolate as a result of issues related to the pandemic (BBC).

Tottenham have been continuing to train at the Hotspur Way base and were only one of two Premier League clubs along with Burnley to keep to their regime (Standard). 

The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare has now confirmed that Tottenham have made the decision to postpone training for the remainder of March and it remains unclear when they will resume their on-field activities. 

The Premier League announced yesterday that the season will not resume until at least 30 April (BBC).
