The forward has returned to his native South Korea to complete his mandatory service while football is suspended amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis

Tottenham forward Son-Heung min is set to begin his military training in South Korea this week as he was pictured arriving at a boot camp.

The 27-year-old – who has not played since February 16 after fracturing his arm – is exempt from the normal two years service that other South Korean men must complete after he helped his country win gold at the 2018 Asian Games.

Instead, Son will complete a reduced three-week training course, and he arrived in the southern island of Jeju prepared to get underway.

Spurs confirmed Son would complete his military service in a statement two weeks ago, which read: “The Club can confirm that  Heung-Min Son will commence his mandatory military service in South Korea this month.

“The forward arrived back in his home country at the end of March where he is currently in quarantine. Our medical staff are in regular contact as he concludes his recovery after fracturing his arm in our 3-2 win against Aston Villa on 16 February and continues to train.

“Son will return to London following the conclusion of his military service in May.”
