CAIRO_3 April 2020: Tottenham Hotspur South Korean winger, Son Heung-min, is set to join the South Korean army to carry out four weeks of national service.

The player was keen to join the army in the summer but with the postponement of football in England amid coronavirus, the South Korean headed home to join the army.

Son managed to get out of the mandatory 21-month service after he led the South Korean U-23 team to win the football tournament of 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia.

Son was one of three overage players in South Korea squad and played a massive role in his national team's campaign towards the title.

Since his arrival from Bayer Leverkusen, Son established himself as a key player at Tottenham and formed an attacking partnership with the team goalscorer, Harry Kane.

Football in England is postponed till the end of April amid coronavirus and further postponement is expected.
