Dele Alli has insisted that Tottenham players are continuing to take training seriously during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Spurs have shared videos of the squad remotely keeping up with their fitness regime via the Zoom conference call app.

Dele has admitted that training in isolation took some getting used to but the players are not allowing themselves a break.
“The first few days was a bit of a test, because it was new to everyone, and everyone used to just training, no one was an internet whizz, or knew what they were doing,” the midfielder told The Mirror.
“I know at Tottenham we have all been staying fit, no one has taken this time as a break as such in terms of eating what we want, doing what we want, everyone’s been training.
“We have all been using the Zoom app in the morning, with each other doing the sessions as a team together.”
Staying in shape is one thing, but the most that the players have been able to do with a ball is a few keepy-uppies in the garden.
It has been nearly a month since Tottenham’s last match. I know our form was awful prior to the postponement but still, I can speak for the fans when I say this lockdown would be a bit more durable with some football to help us through it. And Dele has said that the players are missing it too.
“I think everyone misses football now,” the 23-year-old told The Mirror. “Before when the season is coming to an end you are prepared for it, and for the break, and then to get in ready for the next season, so to randomly stop like this when you are focused on the season, you do miss it.
“You do just want to be out there every day training and playing, so it is hard but I guess everyone’s adapting to it.”
