Tottenham star Son enjoyed his South Korean military service

Tottenham star Heung-min Son says he enjoyed his South Korean military service.

Son had to complete three weeks of mandatory military service in his native South Korea.

The lockdown allowed him time to do so and the 27-year-old made quite the impression, winning an award for the best performance and receiving praise for his shooting skills.

"It was a good experience," Son told the club's social media channels.

"I couldn't say everything that I've done but I enjoyed it. The three weeks were tough.

"On the first days no one knew each other so it was a bit weird, but soon we got to know each other. You have to spend every day together, there were ten people in one room so we got very close.

"We were working together, helping each other. In the first days the other guys couldn't even speak to me but by the end we were joking and enjoying together."
