Harry Kane misses start of pre-season training after he is quarantined

The rules changed whilst he was on holiday

Harry Kane has missed the beginning of Tottenham Hotspur's pre-season as he is still in quarantine after returning from a family holiday.

The England star traveled to the Bahamas after Spurs concluded the season against Crystal Palace on July 26th.

When Kane left for the Bahamas, the country was not on the UK's quarantine list. However from August 7th, the rules were changed, requiring anyone entering the UK from the Bahamas to self-isolate for 14 days upon their arrival.

The North London side began pre-season training late last week, but Harry Kane was not able to be a part of it.

Tottenham have a pre-season friendly against Ipswich Town on Saturday, which Kane is set to miss as well.

It is thought that the quarantine should not stop him from being part of England's upcoming Nations League ties against Iceland and Denmark however.

Harry Kane posted a photo of himself on Instagram on his birthday, of himself on holiday with his family.


He also posted a video of him taking part in some informal American football training, so it looks like he is keeping his fitness up.

The Foreign Office currently advises "against all but essential travel to Bahamas. This is based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks."

The list of countries that the UK requires people entering from to self-isolate is constantly changing.

Today it was announced that holidaymakers returning from Portugal will no longer be required to be quarantine.

However, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said that Croatia, Austria and Trinidad and Tobago have been added to the quarantine list.

The Scottish government is also requiring travellers coming from Switzerland to self-isolate.

There are thought to be 20,000 Brits currently in Croatia. The number of coronavirus cases in the country has reached a seven-day average of 27.4 per 100,000, well above the government threshold for quarantine measures at 20 and a marked increase on 7.8 this time last week.
