Harry Kane has revealed that the Tottenham Hotspur squad have been tested for COVID-19 and all have come back negative.
Tottenham cancelled first team training in a group environment at Hotspur Way in mid March following advice from the Govermnent and Premier League (Standard).
The squad instead have been put through their paces by Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff from their homes by using Zoom video conferencing (The Sun).
From April 28th, the players were allowed to return to Hotspur Way to take part in individual running sessions on a strict rotational basis in order to continue to maintain their fitness levels (Spurs official).
Tottenham were one of the first Premier League sides to undergo testing this week and there are plans for regular tests to be conducted for the forseeable future.
Kane appeared on Good Morning Britain on ITV 1 from at 7:24am (15/05/2020) and was asked the question about how he and his team-mates felt about a return to action, when the Spurs forward revealed that the squad is currently free of the virus.
He said as quoted by the Standard: “We want to see how the Premier League give us a plan, and what that looks like and we’ll go from there.
“Personally, I’m happy to start training in small groups if we are allowed and try and get back to some normality as soon as possible.
“Every player’s different and everyone has there own point of view.”
