Mourinho hosts live video Tottenham training sessions during lockdown

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho will put players through their paces from home starting Monday as the club holds live video training sessions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Spurs' players are in self-isolation with Britain in lockdown and the Premier League suspended until at least April 30.

The players so far have been working through their own individual training programmes designed by the coaching and sports science teams, and England midfielder Harry Winks said they were still adjusting to the new routine.

"It's a bit strange for all of us, but I've got my head around it," Winks told the club's website.

"We've all been given a schedule, but it's flexible, we can do it in our own time.

"So, for instance, I might have a lie in one day, but then I'll work later. The important thing is to get it done."

Meanwhile, England captain Harry Kane fears any delay in the Premier League beyond June could even impact the 2022 World Cup.

The Tottenham striker feels the top flight will strive to complete the season, with all action suspended until at least April 30 due to the coronavirus.

That delay is likely to be extended with no suggestion when the top flight or EFL will restart as the country battles against the pandemic.

Euro 2020 has already been pushed back to next year and Kane, who is recovering from a hamstring injury, insisted the season should not be allowed to drift.

"The further this season is pushed on, it would have such a big knock-on effect for next season, with the Euros in 2021, and even the World Cup 2022," said Kane in an Instagram Live conversation with Jamie Redknapp.

"Football is secondary at the moment. I know there still have to be plans in place and I'm sure everyone is trying to do that.
