    Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur swept all four of the club's end-of-season awards on Sunday, proving him to be one of the best players in the team for two years in a row.

    The awards ceremony was held after Tottenham's final home match of the season against Leicester City.

    He picked up an award for Goal of the Season for his stunning solo goal against Burnley in December last year and three other awards -- One Hotspur Player of the Season, One Hotspur Juniors' Player of the Season and Official Supporters' Clubs' Player of the Season.

    Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur poses after winning the club's end-of-season awards in London on Sunday, in this grab from the club's Twitter account.

    Earlier in the day, Son was denied credit for what would have been his 12th goal of the season. His right-footed shot took a deflection off Leicester City defender James Justin and went into the net in the sixth minute. But the goal was later reclassified as an own goal by Justin.

    But Tottenham defeated Leicester City 3-0 thanks to Harry Kane's multiple goals.

    Son did not complain about the decision. "It is more important that we won the game than that it was recorded as an own goal," he said.
