Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur has won the Budweiser Goal of the Season award in the English Premier League for his stunning solo goal against Burnley.
The EPL on Thursday said Son's "run from the edge of his own box and finish against Burnley [was] voted the best scored in 2019/20."
The goal was chosen based on votes by football fans and a panel of experts.
In a home match on Dec. 7 with his team leading 2-0 in the 32nd minute, Son took just a few seconds to run from Spurs' penalty area to the other end of the pitch and score, outpacing several Burnley players who tried to stop him.
"Son dribbled an incredible 71.4 meters in only 11 seconds, the second-longest distance traveled by a player to score in a Premier League match" the EPL said.
