Sun, Tottenham Hotspur player ends his 3-week-long military training.
Tottenham Hotspur’s South Korean Sun Hyung-min has finished his three-week military service in his country, with the best among 157 trainees during basic training.
The South Korean Yonhap news agency quoted this news today, Friday, a South Korean Marines officer stationed at the base of South Jeju Island, where the officer said, “He received the Belsong Award, which is one of the 5 types of Excellence Awards, which are awarded to the best trainees.”
All healthy men are required to spend about two years in military service in South Korea, but Sun got a waiver after he led South Korea to win the 2018 Asian Games gold, and yet he has to work 544 hours in community service for the next three years.
During the exercises, the trainees are exposed to tear gas, walking long distances and receiving weapons training.
Sun was quarantined for two weeks after arriving in Seoul from London at the end of March.
Sun’s military training came in his country in light of the stoppage of the English Premier League due to the continuing crisis of the “Covid-19” Corona virus.
Sun has not played in any games since he suffered an arm fracture in the Aston Villa match on February 16th.
