Son Heung-min filmed a video for Spurs TV with British actor Tom Holland this week, with the Spurs forward revealing which of his teammates are most like different superheroes from the Marvel Universe’s Avengers.

Holland, who is best known for his portray of Spiderman, has professed in the past to be a Tottenham fan.

The former BAFTA Rising Star Award winner sat down with Son to ask him to match his teammates to the various avengers based on their similar characteristics.

The South Korean picked Harry Kane as being the closest to Hawkeye – who can “hit the target from a great distance with pinpoint accuracy” –  and raved about the England captain’s finishing ability.

Son said: “That must be Harry. When you see his finishing, in his training sessions, it’s sometimes like wow.”

The 29-year-old picked Hugo Lloris as Captain America for his loyalty and former Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele as Thor.

Son and Holland both agreed that Cristian Romero was the closest to the Hulk, with the Tottenham forward admitting that he is sometimes scared to go into a challenge with the Argentine in training.

I have to say that most of the picks were spot on. Perhaps Son might have been tempted to go with Harry Kane as Captain America before this summer but following the City transfer saga, ‘loyalty’ is not anymore the first thing one would associate with the 28-year-old.
