A mural of Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min was unveiled on the external wall of a building in Stoneleigh, London earlier this week.
"An incredible mural from GnasherMurals going up today of a certain Tottenham star," Spurs' fan page The Spurs Web tweeted on Monday.
Painted by graffiti artist Gnasher, the mural depicts the first Asian top scorer in the English Premier League performing his trademark goal celebration, along with his name and jersey number, 7.
"This one's for my son Dani... seeing as my son is British/Asian, he aspires to emulate Son Heung Min, first Asian to get a golden boot," the artist said on Facebook. "Being a West Ham fan it hurt a little but the things you do for your children."
Tottenham Hotspur will meet their Korean fans during a pre-season tour of the country next month. The English team will face the K-League All-Star team in Seoul on July 13 and Sevilla of Spain's La Liga in Suwon on July 16.
