Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and other Tottenham Hotspur players took part in the dizzy penalty challenge in support of The Global Goals.
Tottenham Hotspur secured their first win of the season against Sunderland in the weekend, courtesy of a Ryan Mason goal. Mason injured himself while celebrating the goal and this explains his absence from the Dizzy penalty challenge.

Tottenham’s arch rival Arsenal FC players Mikel Arteta and Theo Walcott also took part in the challenge. . World’s fastest man and Manchester United fan Usain Bolt was the most recent celebrity sportsperson to take part in the challenge.
