Club captain makes video call as Spurs recognise efforts of frontline workers during coronavirus pandemic

Tottenham Hotspur are highlighting the contributions of their supporters working on the front line during the coronavirus pandemic, having launched their Hotspur Heroes campaign.

Fans are being given the chance to nominate others who are doing invaluable jobs during the crisis and deserve recognition, including healthcare workers, teachers, supermarket staff and volunteers.

A new Spurs-supporting hero is being chosen each week, with the first being Danielle Morrish.

An NHS receptionist from London, she has gone the extra mile by doing a sponsored walk which has raised over £2,200 for NHS Charities.

Of course Danielle wore her Spurs shirt all the way, and club captain Hugo Lloris made a video call to find out more and offer his gratitude for her selflessness.

"I would like to thank you for your time, thank you for your actions," he says. "It's a kind of example for all of us."

Spurs' recognition for the efforts of frontline workers follows the transformation of their stadium for clinical use by the NHS.

The club's ground is hosting the North Middlesex Hospital’s Women's Outpatient Services, while a drive-through COVID-19 testing facility has also been installed at the north London site.
