Tottenham Hotspur players and staff were pictured on the club's Twitter account in preseason training on Monday, and it certainly looked like an enjoyable day for those present.

It felt like a proper summer's day in North London, with temperatures reaching the highest they've been in weeks.

And it meant there was hard work in store for those having to train under the sunshine at Hotspur Way, but by the looks of most of the players photographed, it was a more than pleasant experience.

Erik Lamela was just one of the players that was all smiles as he settled into preseason training having returned late because of the Copa America. The Argentine had a good summer as he impressed in his country's route to the final.

New signing Vincent Janssen looked determined as he sought to impress his manager and new teammates.

Mauricio Pochettino also seemed to be delighted at getting more of his players back and into training, with the former Southampton boss getting heavily involved.

Kevin Wimmer and Heung-Min Son were also pictured, with both surely eager to push on in their second season at White Hart Lane since arriving from the Bundesliga.
