S.Korea president hails Son Heung-min's 'joyous' Golden Boot

Son on Sunday became the first Asian footballer to be the English top flight's leading scorer with 23 goals, with President Yoon calling it a "joyous occasion to be celebrated by the entire Asian football community".

"I believe this award is the result of your passion after having devoted yourself and worked endlessly for your team all season," Yoon said in a message to Son, posted on Facebook. Son's achievement was "a message of hope" for South Koreans during the Covid-19 pandemic, Yoon said, adding that he was looking forward to watching Son lead South Korea at the World Cup in Qatar in November and December.

Tottenham's final match of the season against Norwich on Sunday was aired live in South Korea, kicking off at midnight and ending at 2:00 am Monday.
