Part of the Club’s support of the NHS ‘Get to know cancer’ campaign, the pair answered questions on the importance of eating the right foods and regular exercise.

This followed a talk from a Tottenham Hotspur Foundation health trainer around bowel cancer awareness – how to spot symptoms early and the importance of visiting a GP.

Younes said: “It’s a great idea for the Club to be involved in this campaign. For myself and Steffen to come and give a talk about healthy living is very important because it’s relevant for anyone to know about eating the right foods and keeping fit. As players, it’s what we must do every day to stay at the top of our game.”

Steffen added: “Cancer is something that can affect anyone, and it’s so important that the Club and the Foundation use what we have to make people aware of symptoms and tell people where to go to get help if they need to. I am also of the age now where health is a huge issue if you do not look after yourself properly, so Younes and I are pleased to come here today and pass on our advice.”

The Club announced its season-long support of ‘Get to know cancer’ last month and is once again raising awareness of the campaign at Saturday’s match with Chelsea.

An information stall will be situated on Spurs Square from around 10.30am ahead of the 12.45pm kick-off, offering potentially life-saving information and free health checks for fans.

Volunteers from the London-wide campaign will also be situated on the stadium’s concourses prior to kick off, with information about how you can detect cancer symptoms early.
