Tottenham players surprise South Korean fan by taking her to meet her hero

BY Ryan Rosenblatt • January 25, 2017

A South Korean fan ran into some Tottenham Hotspur players while the team was at training camp in Barcelona. She met Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker and Christian Eriksen, which should have thrilled her.

And she did think it was great, but there was something missing. Or someone.

Being Korean, she naturally wanted to meet Son Heung-min more than anyone and he was nowhere to be found. That's when the Spurs players stepped in to help.

The Tottenham players took her back to the team hotel -- where several more players joined -- and had her knock on Son's door so she would get the chance to meet him. Son, not knowing what was going on and apparently not wanting to get up, wasn't exactly pleased to start.

Son eventually figured out what was happening and happily spent time with the fan.

Everyone got what they wanted. The fan got to meet Son and the Spurs players got a laugh. Son, well, he had to get up so he may not have gotten what he wanted, but he was a good sport and seemed happy to meet the fan.
