Son Heung-min has become known for his smile at Tottenham. And he’s had plenty to be happy about over the last couple of years, becoming a vital member of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad.
It’s not only his footballing excellence that his teammates and fans love him for. The South Korean’s infectious personality has also made him hugely popular at the club.
A fine example of his sense of humour was on display after Spurs’ friendly victory over Juventus in Singapore on Sunday.
After a pitch invader had given a member of Tottenham’s backroom staff a scare, Son decided to play a prank, pretending to be another fan running on the pitch. Watch the hilarious results here.
From what I’ve read in the comments on Reddit, the staff member is apparently Daniel Levy’s brother in law and is in charge of the players’ welfare. He certainly looks like he takes his job seriously!
Spurs ran out 3-2 winners thanks to goals from Erik Lamela and Luca Moura before Harry Kane’s extraordinary stoppage time winner from the half-way line, which you can watch here.
