Son did not have to isolate himself after returning from South Korea, as he has not tested positive for coronavirus, in accordance with Premier League and government protocols.
The Spurs striker took part in a session at Hotspur Way Training Ground and posed for the camera with much shorter hair than usual.
The pause caused by the pandemic allowed the South Korean to fully recover from a broken arm that could have been written off for the rest of his season and also complete military conscription without affecting his football calendar.
