Watch: Son Heung-min does Spider-Man celebration after Spurs goal

Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min celebrates scoring their side's third goal of the game with team mate Emerson Royal during the Premier League match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London. Picture date: Sunday 26 December 2021.

There was happiness at home for Tottenham Hotspur this Boxing day when their very own Spider-Man scored their third goal in a 3-0 Premier League win over Crystal Palace.

Son Heung-Min struck for Spurs in the 74th minute to pile on the misery for Palace, who had their star-man Wilfried Zaha sent off in the first half.

After scoring the goal, Son and his team-mates celebrated by mimicking Spider-Man’s iconic web spray and “Spider-Son” was born.

Tom Holland, who is the latest actor to take on the iconic superhero, is a big Spurs fan and the latest Spider-Man movie was released earlier this month.

Holland is such a big fan that when he met Kylian Mbappe he tried to persuade the Frenchman to sign for Spurs, causing the wonderkid to burst out laughing and categorically say no.

Son has been Tottenham’s main man this season. The South Korea international is their leading Premier League scorer with eight goals and their joint-best creator with three assists in the league.

The strike against Crystal Palace was aso his 22nd goal involvement in the Premier League during this calendar year.
