At the start of the season Harry Kane was nowhere. Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado were ahead of him in the Tottenham packing order, and his playing time was rationed to outings in the Europa League against far-flung opposition with unheard of players and unpronounceable names.
But now Kane is Spurs’ main man, the joint highest scorer in the premier League, a goalscoring England international and now the Lilywhites’ CAPTAIN! Yep, that’s right, for this afternoon’s game at Burnley, the ‘Hurrikane’ will be wearing the armband, somewhat capping his rise this season.
There seems to be nothing beyond the reach of the 21-year-old right now, and it would be no surprise to see him as player manager or even player chairman before the week’s out!
Naturally, there’s been plenty of reaction on Twitter, and here are some of the highlights.

Kane captains Tottenham today? Really? Should they just make him manager, owner and the tea lady too?

Excited for Kane to captain but doubting the decision from Poch. So much pressure as it is. Mason’s far more captain material in my opinion

What referee is gonna question the team captained by what can only be described as a national treasure in Harry Kane #COYS

How can Kane be captain? Can’t have a captain whose very voice makes teammates laugh

Surely putting Harry Kane as captain is only something all Fantasy Football managers should be doing??

To be fair, Burnley shouldn’t trouble us in the air, so that CB pairing may fair fine. Lots of pressure on Kane now, perhaps unnecessarily

Kane captain is absolutely everything
