Tottenham forward Son Heung-Min has been speaking about his military service in South Korea.

With the Premier League suspended due to coronavirus, the opportunity presented itself for the Spurs man to complete mandatory military service in his native country.

All South Korean men must complete their required military service by the age of 28.

Son turns 28 in July, and thus the top-flight’s hiatus offered the perfect chance to serve without infringing on his professional football career.

When Premier League action was suspended in mid-March, the forward was on the sidelines and expected to miss the remainder of the season due to a broken arm.

However, the enforced break in play has allowed Son to fully recover from the fracture picked up in Spurs’ 3-2 win over Aston Villa in February.

The enforced break has also allowed Son to complete his recovery from the arm fracture he suffered in Spurs’ 3-2 win over Aston Villa in February.

Speaking in a video on the official Tottenham website, Son said:

“It’s been a very busy three months.

“[Military service] was a good experience . The three weeks were tough but I tried to enjoy it.

“I don’t know how the [other] people felt, but for me the three weeks have been long but it was a good experience, I enjoyed it.”
