English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur have warned their players to respect the social distancing rules after a section of their players were filmed together in a park.
Defenders Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were filmed by passers-by running together with manager Jose Mourinho photographed at an outdoor training session at Hadley Common with midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
The developments seem to have angered the club hierarchy with a spokesman saying that they had reminded their players of their roles during this period.
"All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors. We shall continue to reinforce this message," a club spokesperson told ESPN.
The UK government has urged people to stay indoors due to the coronavirus pandemic but a section of Premier League players have already broken the rules.
Last week, Manchester City defender Kyle Walker is said to have hosted a party at his place with the right-back forced to apologize publicly; the move expected to be punished by his club who condemned his actions.
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish also apologised for breaking self-isolation a day after he was reportedly photographed at the scene of a car accident.
