Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min shared a special moment with four-year-old fan before a match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Youngster Deliah Thorpe watches Spurs on a regular basis, but during the warm up prior to Tottenham’s Carabao Cup clash with London rivals West Ham her mother captured a moment she may never forget.
In the video shared on social media, Deliah can be seen singing terrace anthem “When The Spurs Go Marching In” before waving at fan favourite Son, calling “Sonny, I love you!”
When rewarded with a wave in response, Deliah’s reaction of excited disbelief was nothing short of adorable. Her mother excitedly exclaims “He waved at you!”
Son – Asia’s Best Footballer
Son, recently named ‘Best Footballer In Asia’ for the 5th consecutive year, started the match as a substitute but replaced goalscorer Steven Bergwijn in the 62nd minute.
Spurs went on to win the match 2-1 to book a place in the Carabao Cup Semi-Final against another London rival Chelsea.
The first leg was played on Wednesday evening with the Blues coming out on top 2-0 after two first-half goals. Antonio Conte’s men will be hoping to turn the tie around when the return fixture is played on January 12th.
