Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has accepted that he was wrong to hold a personal training session with Tanguy Ndombele in a public park.

Mourinho was pictured taking a one-on-one training session with the midfielder on Hadley Common in Barnet on Tuesday, despite UK government guidelines for people to stay indoors due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Portuguese said: "I accept that my actions were not in line with government protocol and we must only have contact with members of our own household.

"It is vital we all play our part and follow government advice in order to support our heroes in the NHS and save lives."

Tottenham had reminded their players to respect the government's social distancing guidelines after pictures of the London park training session emerged.

Centre-back Davinson Sanchez and full-back Ryan Sessegnon were also filmed by passers-by running together through the park.

"All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors. We shall continue to reinforce this message," a Spurs spokesperson told British media.

The Premier League was suspended last month because of the pandemic and the government has asked the public to stay at home to help slow the spread of the virus.
