Jose Mourinho is keeping an eye on his Tottenham players during the coronavirus lockdown - by using video calls to host virtual training sessions.

With the Premier League season suspended indefinitely owing to the spread of Covid-19, many clubs in England's top flight have closed their training grounds.

It has left players to stay in shape by themselves, with the likes of Man Utd midfielder Nemanja Matic using his kids as weights in his home gym.

Many teams have formulated bespoke plans for each individual player to keep them in the best possible shape while they await the resumption of the league.

But Spurs boss Mourinho has taken that a step further by getting his players together for a virtual training session on remote conference service Zoom.

In a clip shared on Tottenham's Twitter account, the Portuguese boss can be seen hosting the session at the club's training ground in Enfield along with a couple of his coaches.

Many of his players, meanwhile, have dialled in to the video call and the likes of Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and captain Hugo Lloris can be seen being put through their paces.

Some of the exercises the squad are made to do include squats as well as a simple jogging-on-the-spot routine to warm up.

Throughout the clip, Mourinho himself can be seen riding an exercise bike, perhaps acting as encouragement to his players at home that if he can stay fit through this turbulent period, then so can they.
