Tottenham Hotspurs star Son Heung-min has completed his mandatory three-week military service in his native South Korea.
According to information published by the Korea Herald, the attacker finished as one of only five individuals to receive an award at the Marine Corps’ training camp graduation ceremony on the southern island of Jeju.
During his time back in his home nation, Son participated in a program that included shooting and bayonet skills, chemical, biological and radiological training, individual fighting skills and medical training.
In South Korea, all able-bodied men are required to complete around two years in the armed forces as a service to their country, although Son’s Asian Games victory meant that he was only mandated to take part in basic training.
However, he does have to complete 544 hours of community service over the next 34 months around his career as a professional footballer.
