It comes after Chelsea revealed in the early hours of Friday that the winger Callum Hudson-Odoi had tested positive for coronavirus. As a result players, coaching staff and a number of the backroom team were forced to self-isolate in line with government health guidelines.
A Chelsea spokesman said the club have reminded Mount of his responsibilities. West Ham insist that Rice had done nothing wrong.
Meanwhile, Wilfried Zaha was video recorded having a kickabout at a facility in south London.

Mason Mount is a young man, not a kid. However, it shows why locking down schools and colleges is unrealistic. Kids will be going crazy staying indoors without social contact for weeks and months. They will never adhere to it, especially with their ages being the least affected https://t.co/1OXFl2u0UF

Anyone who’s not switched on enough to see why this is bad is his teammate Hudson Odoi has tested positive last week for it, he could easily have it because symptoms can take 14 days to show, its reckless and irresponsible what he’s done and I hope he’s dealt with properly

That's pretty poor tbh. Him and Rice should know better.
