    Tottenham Hotspur are taking no chances with their world-class forward, Son Heung-min.

    Spurs on Tuesday sent a chartered plane to fly Son out of Austria as soon as Korea's friendly against Qatar ended. Korea defeated Qatar 2-1.

    The decision reflects the club's concerns over a spate of coronavirus infections among Korean players and coaching staff, who were staying in the European country to play two friendlies.

    Six players and two staff members have tested positive for COVID-19.
