Tottenham star Son Heung-min arrives at Jeju island for military training

Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min has arrived at the Jeju military boot camp in South Korea to start his mandatory three-week training programme (h/t Mirror).

A two-year military service is mandatory for all physically able men in South Korea. However, the 27-year-old Son was given an exemption from the same, after leading his nation to gold in 2018 Asian Games.

But our attacker still needs to undergo a mandatory training regime that lasts about 3-4 weeks. And Son was seen arriving at the military boot camp in Jeju island in order to kickstart his service (h/t Mirror).

The 27-year-old will be joining the 9th Brigade of the Marine Corps until May 8 (h/t Mirror).

Son has been out injured since February after fracturing his arm in the game against Aston Villa. The South Korean underwent a surgery on the arm in his homeland, before returning to the UK.

But with the Premier League suspension getting extended, he sought to make use of this time to complete the military service which was initially scheduled to happen in the off-season (h/t Evening Standard).

Son was back in South Korea earlier this month. The 27-year-old was placed in quarantine for a 14-day period upon arrival due to prevailing conditions across the globe.
