As Premier League teams returned to training albeit in small groups, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho managed to supply some comedian relief to football-starved Premier League fans. The likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dele Alli among others were seen taking part in fitness building training sessions, with equipment being continuously disinfected. Maintaining a tally of things was once manager Jose Mourinho — whilst riding a bicycle. The Spurs official Twitter maintain posted an image of the Portuguese riding the cycle.

Germany’s Bundesliga resumed its season at the back of closed doors final weekend, fitting the first major league to go back to action.
The Premier League’s target of restarting on June 12 has been called into question by players’ concern for their welfare, both from the specter of the virus and injuries with little preparation time after this type of long layoff.
Meantime, Tottenham have launched another investigation into one of their players after defender Serge Aurier seemed to flout social-distancing rules for a third time.
The Ivorian posted an Instagram photo on Tuesday showing off his new haircut and tagged the barber in his post.
Hairdressers are closed in Britain in line with the government’s rules on social distancing.
Spurs have in the past had to remind Tanguy Ndombele, Davinson Sanchez, Ryan Sessegnon and Moussa Sissoko of their responsibilities after they were pictured in breach of social distancing guidelines.
Manager Jose Mourinho had also admitted his wrongdoing in arranging a one-on-one training session with Ndombele in April.
