Son's likable personality, combined with his performances on the pitch, have made him a fan favourite for club and country.

He scored eleven goals and assisted the same amount for Spurs this season as they finished sixth in the Premier League.

Son also used football's suspension during the coronavirus pandemic to complete his mandatory military service.

Marine Corps officials were amazed at Son's performance and he placed in the top five of 157 trainees back in May.
