My brother lives in Atlanta and is part of the Atlanta Spurs official supporters group. Last night he messaged to say he might call at some point during the game today, and to ensure my son was around.

Never got the phone call, but he did message to explain why.
They were expecting Harry to join them in the pub they all watch our games in. Harry's brother had contacted them to find out location, time etc.
In the end neither of them turned up...
He thinks Harry is still in the Bahamas and isn't due in Atlanta until later today or tomorrow.
Oh man that's such a massive shame for your brother and the others from the Atlanta fan club. I'm sure HK and his brother had their reasons for not showing up though

Really hope with his rehab work away he comes back refreshed mentally. Looking at the conditioning work he was doing on Instagram, I can see him being on the bench in a couple of weeks.

Just his presence back in the dressing room and knowing we can bring him on for 20 minutes or so, will be a timely boost.

From previous injuries it’s normally 2 weeks field training till full training. But this is Kane wouldn’t surprise me if he is on bench for Dortmund.

I know Kane has always been a big NFL fan. But I do wonder if he has been “encouraged” by the club to push the subject. Quite handy for Levy that our star striker and England captain is plastered all over social media with his Super Bowl holiday snaps. I’ve no doubt he was interviewed by US broadcasters and asked about the stadium and a London franchise. Maybe I’m to cynical and it’s just a lovely coincidence.

He flew by private jet too. I mean I know Kane is a multimillionaire, but does he usually fly by Private Jet? I didn't think he did. Which would suggest the club funded his trip. You're probably right. He was in the Bahamas which was again funded by the club. I imagine the whole thing was a club trip.

I think this is great, the club are handling his injury really well, we were all desperate to see him get a rest earlier in the season and I'm hoping knowing how much Brady inspires him that he comes back with (somehow) even more fire, feeling refreshed and ready for the run in. So happy he didn't stay at home basically having fortnite sessions.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they helped with the organisation of it, it’s win win for all involved. Harry increases his global profile, as do the club. The NFL increase there’s over in England/Europe by having the current England Captain there etc etc.

I’d say it’s more a case of opportunity than anything the club pushed him to do though he’s injured and training out there and he’s a big Tom Brady fan, he’s not going to miss the chance of watching him in the Super Bowl.

I'd imagine he was a guest of Nike, and they did most of the arranging.
