Striker Kane said: “Fortnite will probably be the game of the tournament.

“There’s quite a few lads that love to play it. I am sure when we have our free time that will be the game.”

He revealed the family of his nine-year-old rehab patient, who wet herself rather than stop playing the game, were Spurs fans.

Mr Pope added: “Taking their Xbox off them is like trying to take a bottle of whisky off an alcoholic.”
