The 30-year-old was admitted to hospital on Saturday afternoon after reporting that he wasn’t feeling well to the Spurs medical staff.

The club have described his case as a ‘mild bout’ and that he will not be kept in hospital for too long and could be released on Monday evening.

Adebayor found the net 14 times last season in what could be considered as a mild renaissance, and has been told that he will require at least a week’s rest before he will be able to train with the first team, meaning he will be forced to miss the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.

A Tottenham statement last night said: “The striker is expected to be released from hospital tomorrow (Monday) and will then require a minimum of seven days before returning to training.

“The player has been advised not to travel on medical grounds, which means he will be forced to miss our pre-season tour of North America.”

Spurs are set to face Seattle Sounders, Toronto FC and Chicago Fire during the tour, before commencing the new season against West Ham on 16 August.
