Tottenham forward Son Hyung-min has completed his compulsory military service and was awarded in South Korea.

The son returned home after the Premier League season was postponed in March due to a coronavirus epidemic.

The 27-year-old took the opportunity to finish three weeks of military training with the Marine Corps unit in Jeju.

Officials told the Yonhap News Agency that the son was given the ‘Pilsung’ award for being one of the best actors, perhaps surprising his shooting skills.

The sons are due to return to London next week as the clubs await the news of their return to action.

The South Korean star’s son was released from 21 months of compulsory military service after leading the national team to a gold medal at the Asian Games in September 2013.

The former Bayer Leverkusen man suffered a broken arm in February but was seen ready to fire on all cylinders when Spurs returned.
