​Tottenham donate players fines to NHS hospital

Tottenham have given £100,000 of player fines to a hospital as a 'thank you' for work during the Covid-19 pandemic, reports BBC Sport.

North Middlesex University Hospital will receive the sum, which has been raised from fines for rule breaches during lockdown periods.

Chairman Daniel Levy said Spurs "ring-fence fine money for good causes".

"We can think of no better cause to donate these funds to than North Mid's 'Thank You' initiative for staff," Levy added.

"NHS staff across the country continue to make sacrifices and put themselves at risk every day to save lives and we hope this contribution will go some way towards providing the recognition that these heroes deserve."
