Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min
English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min has been allowed to fly home to South Korea for "personal reasons".
Britain is under lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak, but the Premier League club on Sunday said Son has been given permission to return to Asia.
"The club has given permission for both Heung-Min Son and Steven Bergwijn to return to their home countries," a statement on Tottenham's website said.
"Both players will continue their individual rehabilitation and training programmes during their time away."
Son, 27, was recovering from a fractured arm during Tottenham's win at Aston Villa on February 16. Son had already spent two weeks in self-isolation in Britain after returning from South Korea at the end of February, having travelled home for surgery.
