Son to self-isolate on return to UK because of COVID-19


    Tottenham forward Son Heung-min is to self-isolate in line with national guidelines regarding the spread of coronavirus when he returns to the UK from South Korea.

    Son, 27, travelled to Seoul for surgery on a fractured arm earlier this month.

    Tottenham say he will follow “government advice” and stay indoors as a precaution upon his return.

    Newcastle and West Ham have banned handshakes at their training grounds in an attempt to stop the virus’ spread.

    “There’s a ritual here that everybody shakes hands with everybody as soon as we see each other every morning – we’ve stopped that on the advice of the doctor,” said Newcastle manager Steve Bruce.

    “Thankfully, we’ve got a superb doctor here and he will keep us informed of what we have to do.

    “We’re like everybody else, we’re glued to the TV for where it’s going to go next and let’s hope it doesn’t get any worse in this country.”

    West Ham boss David Moyes said: “After consulting with the medical team, we have supplied all the players with hand gel to keep with them.

    “We’ve also agreed to no shaking hands at the moment, just fist bumps. If we score tomorrow, of course they’ll be able to celebrate.”
