Son now has 12 goals in the competition to his name, which means he has now become the highest scoring Asian in UCL history.
The record was originally held by Maxim Shatskikh of Uzbekistan but Son has now overtaken him to become Asia’s best in the competition.
Another phenomenal season for Son has seen him become one of the hottest commodities in European football, and Spurs could face a challenge in ensuring he pledges his future to the North London club.
