"I think all of the players and staff had tests which came back negative – which was great.

"The clubs are talking to the premiere league and hopefully in the next couple of weeks, we can start training in small groups of four or five.

"But hopefully we will be tested regularly as well – but like I said, we're just taking it day by day and week by week to see what we can and can't do."

GMB fans infuriated

Viewers tuning in at home were furious to learn that footballers have been tested for COVID-19 when NHS staff and so many key workers have not been able to get tests.

Taking to social media afterwards, fans vented to the official GMB Twitter account.

"How on Earth are football players getting tested when there are front line staff that have not.... this is all wrong!" wrote one viewer.

Another added: "This just proves football thinks it’s more important than anything else players tested ? What about NHS care homes, supermarket staff, bus drivers, delivery drivers etc? Disgraceful."

Moments later, a fourth tweeted: "How on earth have our footballers managed to get tested but our frontliners can’t! Really??? What the hell is going on."

Shortly after, a fourth wrote: "How do they get tested when we can’t test Nhs ??? Other key workers?"

Harry Kane ready for return to work

At the end of his interview, Harry revealed that Tottenham FC is currently allowing one-on-one training sessions with social distancing measures still in place.

Last week, players were allowed back into their training ground for the first time since lockdown.

Commenting on returning to work, Harry added: "I'm happy to start tart training in small groups if we're allowed.

"But every player is different and everyone has their own personal view."

Good Morning Britain is on ITV, weekdays at 6am.
