Alli apologised for posting the video, which he deleted, but this has not prevented the Football Association from launching a probe into the repulsive act.
Alli, who has been on holiday while Spurs are on their winter break, posted the video of him wearing a face mask in an airport lounge with the message, "Corona whattt, please listen with volume".
However, the FA are keen to clamp down on the abuse of social media and have a whole raft of measures that they can use against Alli. "I let myself down and the club", said the England worldwide Alli.
The video after that frying pans to a container of disinfectant hand clean, which was captioned: "This infection gunna need to be quicker than that to capture me".
It would be considered an aggravated breach if a comment or social media post, whether explicitly or implicitly, makes reference to ethnic origin, colour, race, nationality, religion or belief, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or disability.
"It wasn't amusing. I realized that immediately and took it down", he said.
Nevertheless, Alli and Spurs are now bracing themselves for FA sanctions given the sensitivities of the video. I don't want you to have that impression of me because it wasn't amusing. "Sending all my love and thoughts and prayers for everyone in China". The Manchester City midfielder was found to contravened rule E3 this season, after a tweet in which the Portuguese appeared to compare his teammate Benjamin Mendy to the caricature of a black boy found on the packaging of a Spanish confectionary brand.
And due to this offence, the forward was banned for one game and fined £50,000.
