Tottenham have reminded their players of their responsibilities during the coronavirus lockdown after social media posts appeared to show some failing to follow social-distancing guidelines.

Defenders Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were filmed by passers-by running together through the park.

With the Premier League suspended to try and help contain the coronavirus outbreak, players from every club in the country have been training from home to ensure they're adhering to social distancing rules.

Mourinho was photographed taking an outdoor training session at Hadley Common with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, despite government guidelines for people to stay indoors.

Keen to get in on the act, Serge Aurier shared a video of himself on Instagram running closer to a friend than the allotted two metres.

Mourinho has not apologised for his behaviour, but did issue a statement that read: "I accept that my actions were not in line with government protocol and we must only have contact with members of our own household".

Tottenham responded by reminding staff of the current rules and urging them to abide by social distancing measures.

The Premier League has been suspended for nearly a month because of the coronavirus pandemic with players and officials taking substantial wages cuts with the game on hold. "We shall continue to reinforce this message", a spokesperson said, as quoted by the Independent.
