Spurs have also warned their stars not to break social distancing guidelines after two separate videos posted online showed players ignoring the advice to stay at least 6ft apart.

A club spokesperson said: “All of our players have been reminded to respect social distancing when exercising outdoors. We shall continue to reinforce this message.”

But Tottenham boss Mourinho, who was wearing the club’s official training kit, could face a sterner warning from cops after he was filmed conducting a training drill involving what looked like three players with members of the public just yards away.

SunSport understands one of the players was £65million record signing Tanguy Ndombele.

An online video showed Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon jogging around the same park much closer together than the government’s recommended two metres apart.

And in yet another posting, Serge Aurier could also be seen flouncing the safety measures as he trained closely with a pal.

CRACKDOWN

Official advice during the coronavirus pandemic is that all individuals should stand at least two metres apart at all time, and exercise outdoors can only be undertaken with one other person from your own household.

Scotland’s chief medical officer Catherine Calderwood quit her post on Sunday after she was stopped and warned by police while visiting her second home.

Several parks in London have already been closed by police in order to avoid people meeting up during the current lockdown.

The guidelines state more than two people out together is viewed as “a gathering” and must be dispersed.

Police are using new laws to crackdown on those breaking the lockdown and may want to speak to Mourinho about his public training session.

Tottenham refused to comment about their maverick manager breaking the guidelines.

But a club source claims he had only intended to do a fitness session with flop Ndombele - which is still against the measures put in place in a bid to combat coronavirus, which has now claimed 6,159 lives in the UK.

The pictures, posted on an Arsenal fan account, appeared with the caption: "Spurs players and manager training at Hadley common (Barnet) today!! They really aren’t doing themselves any favours during this period."

Prem stars Mason Mount, Jack Grealish and Kyle Walker have all landed themselves in hot water after ignoring the government’s advice on social distancing.
