LON­DON: For­mer Eng­land in­ter­na­tional mid­fielder Aaron Lennon re­turned to train­ing with his Pre­mier League side Ever­ton yes­ter­day al­most two months af­ter be­ing de­tained by po­lice for a ‘stress-re­lated in­ci­dent’. The 30-year-old for­mer Leeds United and Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur star-who won the last of his 21 caps in 2013 — was pho­tographed in the gym train­ing. “Fan­tas­tic to see Aaron Lennon back at Finch Farm,” tweeted Ever­ton FC Pho­tos re­fer­ring to the club’s train­ing fa­cil­i­ties. Lennon-who won the 2008 League Cup with Spurs-was de­tained by po­lice un­der the Men­tal Health Act in early May. Lennon had not played for the club since Fe­bru­ary 11th but Ever­ton-who paid Spurs £4 mil­lion ($5.2 mil­lion, 4.5 mil­lion eu­ros) in Septem­ber 2015 for his ser­vices-sup­ported him through­out the time he was treated. Un­der the Men­tal Health Act, po­lice can de­tain peo­ple to as­sess whether they need ur­gent treat­ment for a men­tal health dis­or­der and if they are a risk of harm to them­selves or oth­ers. — AFP
