The club proudly lit up one of the iconic structures of the world on Thursday - the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Opened in 1932, the 'Coathanger' as it is fondly known to locals is the world's largest steel arch bridge with the top of the bridge standing 134 metres above Sydney Harbour, with the Sydney Opera House sitting across the water.

Sydney Harbour Bridge was lit in our famous colours on Wednesday night while images of the players including Harry Kane, Jan Vertonghen, Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm beamed onto the huge pillars either side of the bridge made for stunning views not just for Spurs fans but for thousands of people currently visiting the city for Vivid Sydney light, music and sound festival.

Mauricio Pochettino, assistant head coach Jesus Perez, first team coach Miguel D'Agostino and goalkeeping coach Toni Jimenez took the chance to ferry into the middle of Sydney Harbour for a couple of iconic photographs with the background of Sydney Harbour Bridge looking resplendent in Spurs colours.

"This has been a fantastic experience, we are very lucky," said Mauricio. "And to see our colours,  images of our players and our crest beamed onto the pillars is something very special for the club.

"It was great to see our fans when we arrived in Sydney and we're very excited about our game against Sydney FC on Saturday night."

Earlier, Mauricio's staff, players, board members and staff all grasped the chance to take on the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, where you weave your slowly (and carefully under strict guidance!) to the very top of the structure.

The group was able to see Sydney in all its glory by night with spectacular views over the harbour.

Christian Eriksen loved every minute - and was quick to point out the Sydney Opera House was designed by a fellow Dane, Jorn Utzon.

"It was incredible to be at the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, what a view!" said the midfielder, who added: "Of course, it was designed by a Dane! That's normal for us!"

DeAndre Yedlin was also in Christian's group and added: "It's been an unbelievable experience and to see the city light up during the Vivid Festival is incredible."

We take on Sydney FC in the AIA Cup at the famous ANZ Stadium on Saturday (8pm local time).

We received an official invitation to visit from New South Wales Government and Destination New South Wales, as part of the week of sporting events and cultural activities taking place in Sydney.
