By Danny Wright
Tottenham fans on Twitter have lost their minds with delight after it was confirmed that Harry Kane will start against Real Madrid on Wednesday night.
Spurs were sweating over the fitness of Kane, 24, after he missed the Saturday defeat to Manchester United through injury.
However it appears that the England international has got over his setback and was announced on the Tottenham official Twitter account that he will lead the line of attack in the Champions League clash against Madrid.

Kane has been in sensational form for Spurs this season, scoring 13 goals in 12 appearances across all competitions, with five of them coming in the Champions League.
He forced an own goal from Rafael Varane in Tottenham’s meeting with Real at the Bernabeu last month that ended in a 1-1 draw.
