Olympic skeleton champion Yun Sung-bin has received a surprise gift from Manchester United of England, of which he is a huge fan.
On Monday, Yun posted on his Instagram account a photo of himself holding a Manchester United jersey with the caption, "A present from Old Trafford," referring to the team's home ground.
"YUN" and "2018" are written on the back, celebrating his outstanding performance at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang last month.
Yun wears a Manchester United jersey underneath his skeleton suit, demonstrating his support for the football club.
When he won the gold medal at the Olympics, a congratulatory message was posted for him in Korean on the club's official Facebook page: "Yun's hard work eventually paid off! We're so proud of him and the fact that he is a fan of our club! We hope to see his brilliant performances now and forever and to meet him at Old Trafford someday!"
