    Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur swept the board at the club's end-of-season awards on Sunday.

    At Spurs' traditional post-match ceremony, held just after a 1-0 victory over Burnley in the club's final home game of the season, Son picked up three awards -- One Hotspur Player of the Season, One Hotspur Juniors' Hotspur Player of the Season, and the Official Supporters' Club's Player of the Season.

    It was a clean sweep for Son -- his third after doing so in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.

    "I'm the happiest guy in the world to play in this stadium. Really happy with the awards," Son said. "I worked hard to be here, to be part of Tottenham. Playing under these amazing fans is incredible."

    Son has been having the best season of his career, amassing 21 goals so far in the English Premier League, just one goal behind Mohamed Salah of Liverpool in the race for the Golden Boot, an award presented each season to the top scorer.

    It is uncertain whether Salah will be able to play and score more goals in the remaining two matches of the season, as he was injured over the weekend during the FA Cup final match against Chelsea, but there is still a chance for Son to add to his goal tally when Spurs face Norwich City in their final match of the season this weekend.
