Despite his ankle injury, Harry Kane looks to be having a fine weekend – he was in Atlanta for the Super Bowl after his Tottenham team mates claimed a crucial win over Newcastle.
The England captain, who is recovering from a knock which will keep him out until March, has used his time off to travel across the Atlantic for the biggest game in the American football calendar.
Kane attended the game along with his fiancee Katie Goodland, while he also posed for a picture with New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

The striker made his allegiances very clear by wearing a Patriots jersey emblazoned with the No 12, as worn by star quarterback Tom Brady.
He had a front row seat for the celebrations once the Patriots had claimed a 13-3 victory in the lowest-scoring Super Bowl of all-time.
Earlier, Kane was pictured taking to former football stars Osi Umenyiora and Jason Bell, who along with Mark Chapman fronted the BBC’s coverage of the event.
Spurs fans will be very keen to have their talisman back in action as soon as possible however, and will be happy to hear Kane say he is ‘positive’ about his recovery and is planning to step up his training in the coming days.
Kane told Sky Sports: ‘I went away for some warm weather training. I’m stepping it up, next week we will see how we go, get the ball out and see how the ankle reacts. We have just got to take our time with it.
‘I don’t like to put a time on any of my injuries, I just go on how it feels. At the moment it feels good, as long as the swelling stays away.’

Kane looked to be in good spirits, chatting and laughing with Bell and Umenyiora, and enjoying his time stateside.
His mood will have been boosted by Tottenham earning a hard-fought 1-0 win at home to Newcastle, thanks to Son Heung-Min’s late winner.
Tottenham looked to lack an attacking edge for much of the game, in Kane’s absence, however the three points keep them in touch with Liverpool and Manchester City in the title race.
Earlier, Kane shared a video of his journey to the Super Bowl with his 7.8 million Instagram followers. The video shows the 25-year-old make himself comfortable on the lavish jet while flicking through a magazine.
The forward is a big fan of the NFL, and an avid supporter of the Patriots, who defeated the Rams in the showpiece.
