Tottenham Hotspur are the first Premier League club to host a coronavirus testing operation at their stadium.

A Covid-19 testing and swabbing operation commenced at the 62 000-seater stadium late last week, while it opened its doors to patients after being transformed into a facility for the NHS on Tuesday.

The stadium's basement car park is being used as a site for drive-through tests for North Middlesex University Hospital staff, their families and dependants.

There will be up to 70 tests carried out per day, with 10 nurses on the site between 10:00 -14:00 five days a week.

Spurs' new home has been repurposed and fitted out to house patients of North Middlesex Hospital's Women's Outpatient Services, helping keep pregnant women away from the hospital and freeing up space for the treatment of Covid-19.

The club's media cafe, away dressing room, NFL dressing room, flash interview rooms and press conference room are all now being used by NHS staff to treat up to 70 patients per day.
