Obviously football clubs are in the same situation as everyone else so the players need to stay at home and follow any individual training regimes, but that might not be the case at Spurs.

#thfc Mourinho believed to have organised a “training session” with Ndombele, Sessegnon & Sanchez on Hadley Common in Barnet today. All live locally. Everyone involved has been reminded about social distancing guidelines. Safe to say club is v unimpressed.

There’s really two ways of looking at it, as it’s possible they really just happened to be in the same park at the same time, so it depends on how that training looked.
If it was a simple case of running around and keeping distance then it might be okay, but you can be sure that members of the public would be attracting police attention pretty quickly if they arranged for a kickabout down the park.
There’s no signs of any fall out with this just now, but you have to think we haven’t heard the last of this.
