Hairdressers are closed in Britain in line with the government's rules on social distancing.

They are not expected to open again until at least July 4.

"We are investigating the circumstances and will deal with the incident appropriately," a Tottenham statement said on Wednesday.

Aurier did not appear entirely repentant when he responded to criticism of his actions with a further Instagram post.
