Good Deed

SPURS have built a house for orphans in South Africa — with money from their players’ fines.

The Premiership giants spent £100,000 on the project at Rustenburg in the north-west of the country.

Tottenham set aside stars’ fines — ranging from turning up late to more serious disciplinary offences — for five years.

And 20 per cent has been spent on the orphans, the rest going to the local community via the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

A spokesman said: “We established a link on a tour four years ago and we’ll be going back there this summer.

“We’re proud to be the first football club to do something like this. The players have a strong interest in the scheme.”

Just in case you wondered why we are strapped for cash on the potential Darren Bent deal.
