Tottenham have joined their north London rivals Arsenal in re-opening their training ground for the use of their first-team squad.
The news comes amid speculation that plans are being made for Premier League football to return behind closed doors in the near future, with the wheels said to be in motion for a re-start as early as June.
Like Arsenal, Spurs players will have to follow draconian rules to ensure social distancing measures are observed, and there will be a rota in place to ensure there are not too many of the squad there at one time.
A statement from the club read: "From tomorrow (28 April), the Club shall be making a limited number of pitches available at our Training Centre for members of our first team squad to use for individual running sessions on a strict rotational basis.
"No more than one player per pitch will be permitted at any one time to undertake on-pitch exercise, with only a restricted number of the squad coming to the Training Centre each day.
"Each player will travel independently and arrive at the facilities already dressed in training wear before returning home immediately after they have concluded their session.
"All activity will be conducted in line with government guidelines with social distancing maintained at all times and there will be no access permitted to any building on site."
A number of figures at Spurs have landed themselves in hot water for failing to observe social distancing during the lockdown period.
Jose Mourinho was forced to publicly apologise after he and Tanguy Ndombele were pictured training together in Barnet earlier this month.
And Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko also ignored government guidelines to train together just weeks later, with Aurier posting a video on social media of the two players running shuttles and sitting next to each other.
