Kane misses start of Tottenham pre-season after being told to self-isolate

Harry Kane has been forced to miss Tottenham's return to pre-season training to undergo a period of self-isolation.

The Spurs star and England captain jetted off for a family holiday to the Bahamas soon after the extended 2019/20 Premier League season reached its conclusion on July 26.

At time time of travelling, the Bahamas were not on the UK's quarantine list but those travel restrictions changed on August 8.

That ultimately meant Kane was required to quarantine for 14 days upon arriving back in the UK, which meant he was not part of the Spurs squad who returned for pre-season last week.

As reported by the Daily Mail, Kane is yet to link up with his teammates as he finishes the self-isolation period but is expected to return to the club's HQ at some point next week.

And it is not expected to have any damning impact on Jose Mourinho's preparations for Spurs' opening game of their pre-season schedule against Ipswich this Saturday.

Kane’s setback should also not have any consequences for England’s upcoming Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark.

Gareth Southgate names his squad next week and is expected to include his captain.

Meanwhile, the first instalment of Amazon Prime's documentary on Tottenham will be released on August 31.

The All or Nothing series followed Spurs during a tumultuous 2019-20 campaign, which was full of drama on and off the pitch, and the first three episodes will air on the last day of the month.

Two further blocks of three episodes will drop on the streaming site on September 7 and September 14.

The fly-on-the-wall documentary will begin with Mourinho's arrival at the club, less than 24 hours after Mauricio Pochettino's sacking and is likely to feature Kane's serious injury, Christian Eriksen's exit, Eric Dier climbing into the stands to confront a fan and Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min's spat on the pitch.

There will also be a focus on the club's community work and how they responded to the shutdown of the Premier League due to coronavirus.
