      Tottenham Hotspur players flew back to London on Sunday after playing two friendly matches in Korea.

      Spurs fans flocked to Incheon International Airport to see off Son Heung-min and his teammates.

      Son spent about an hour signing autographs for fans before heading to a departure gate.

      The English Premier League team drew 1-1 with Sevilla of Spain's La Liga in a friendly match in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province on Saturday.

      While last Wednesday's friendly between Tottenham and the K-League All-Stars team was a goal-fest with Spurs winning 6-3, Saturday's game against the Spanish team was more like a UEFA Champions League match.

      It was a fierce game with many tackles and tussles, but Korean spectators were happy to see such amazing performance in their home country.

      While in Korea last week, Spurs were enthusiastically cheered by their fans wherever they went. Last Friday, the players enjoyed Korean beef BBQ bought for them by Son.

      Pictures of them wearing aprons and having dinner at a table with a charcoal grill were uploaded on Spurs' official Instagram account on the same day.

      Tottenham Hotspur will resume their pre-season training after returning to London.

      The new EPL season will start on Aug. 5 and Spurs will have their opener at home against Southampton the next day.
