Tottenham and England superstar Dele Alli was held at knifepoint during a burglary on Wednesday morning. According to BBC Sport, two men broke into the 24-year-old's house in north London, where he was self-isolating with his brother and their respective partners due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Spurs midfield ace was threatened and hit during the incident and sustained minor injuries on his face. It is believed Alli has handed CCTV footage to the police, and an investigation will follow suit.
