Tuchel interrupted Harry Kane interview to slap star who tried to mask the pain

Thomas Tuchel interrupted one of Harry Kane's post-match interviews on Sunday by slapping the Tottenham Hotspur star.

Kane could be heard trying to mask the pain of the slap after the passing Chelsea manager decided to gate-crash his attempts to speak to the media following the heated London derby. Tuchel's side had twice lead at Stamford Bridge before being pegged back by the visitors, with Kane stealing a point for Spurs with a stoppage time equaliser.

After the match, Kane spoke to BBC Radio 5 Live and was asked: “What is it about you and goals in London derbies? It’s an incredible record you’ve got… and last minute goals.”

Kane responded by admitting: “Yeah, I don’t know, I can’t put my finger on it, but I enjoyed this one, so…” He was then interrupted by Tuchel, who can be heard slapping him as he walks past.

The England captain is clearly hurt by the slap as he lets out a muffled "arrrgh" as Tuchel says sorry for the intensity of his slap.

Despite being in pain, Kane is able to joke: “that’s another red isn’t it,” with both he and Tuchel laughing off the altercation.

How many goals will Harry Kane score this season? Let us know in the comments section below.

Tuchel had been sent off following the final whistle at Sunday, along with Spurs boss Antonio Conte after a scuffle broke out following their post-match handshake, with players and staff forced to pull them apart.

The two managers had also clashed on the touchline during the match when Tuchel took an exception to Conte's celebrations after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had pulled Spurs level.

Both have since been charged by the FA for their antics, meanwhile, Tuchel is also under investigation for comments he made about referee Anthony Taylor after the match.

Kane's injury time glancing header both rescued a point for his side and took his tally against Chelsea to seven goals in 21 meetings with the Blues.

He has now scored 51 times in London derbies, including 13 strikes against north London rivals Arsenal and 11 goals West Ham United.
