    Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur has won this year's FIFA Puskás Award for the best goal of the season.

    Son received the award at the BEST FIFA Football Awards ceremony on Thursday, which was held virtually due to coronavirus.

    He was presented the award for his goal against Burnley in the English Premier League in December 2019, which saw him complete a sprinting, pitch-length dribble past multiple defenders before firing the ball into the net.

    Son is the first Korean and the second Asian footballer to win the award after Malaysia's Mohd Faiz Subri in 2016.

    He is also currently tied for the EPL's top scorer, netting his 11th goal of the season in Spurs' 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday.
