Kane THROWS UP as Son Heung-min struggles to stand after pair collapse in Conte’s brutal Tottenham pre-season training

Date:

ANTONIO CONTE’S brutal running sessions had Harry Kane throwing up in the sticky humidity of South Korea.

Spurs put on a two-hour practice in front of 6,000 adoring fans at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Monday evening local time.

Winger Dejan Kulusevski went down the tunnel with what appeared to be a calf issue inside the first half an hour.

But apart from the Swede, most players seemed to be coping well in the sweltering conditions – until Conte’s full-pitch runs right at the end.

Led by fitness instructor Gian Piero Ventrone, the tired squad were made to do up to 42 laps of the 105metre-long pitch, with those coming back late from international duty doing 30.

That was when the pain began as Kane was left bent double and vomiting on the side of the pitch.

Local hero Son Heung-min was among those to collapse to the floor, sending the crowd into a hushed silence.

New signing Yves Bissouma was sprawled out on the ground at one point, having taken part in Spurs’ third session in just over 24 hours in the Far East.

It was presumably all part of the plan as disciplinarian Conte whipped his players into shape ahead of the new season with methods gruelling enough to scare a triathlete.

Faring best out of the group when it came to putting in the hard yards were Davinson Sanchez, Pape Matar Sarr, Bryan Gil and Troy Parrott, who came first in the final length.

When asked if Conte’s training sessions are as intense as people say, Parrott said: “It depends who you ask.

“I’m quite a good runner naturally, but yeah it’s been tough. It’s been hard work but it’s all preparation.”

Summer freebie Ivan Perisic only watched on from the sidelines as he is not ready for ballwork yet following a calf problem.

Vocal Conte could be heard barking out instructions during various routines, telling Matt Doherty to move it quicker and appearing to advise new goalkeeper Fraser Forster on his footwork.

Kane delighted the crowd by hitting the target with a crossbar challenge effort midway through the hour.

But the biggest cheer of the day came when Son scored in an 11 v 11 played on half of the pitch.

Spurs take on Team K League on Wednesday in the same stadium, before a clash with Sevilla in Suwon on Saturday.
