Goal.com Journalist, Steve Han has revealed Son Heung-min is still not completely in the clear after two more members from the South Korean camp, including one player who played in the International friendly win over Qatar yesterday, tested positive for the virus.

Following a spate of positive tests in the South Korean camp over the weekend, all the players and staff members were tested again before the friendly on Tuesday.

After the 19 other players in the squad tested negative, the game was given the green light to go ahead. Son captained the side and played all ninety minutes on Tuesday, as he set up South Korea’s match-winner in their 2-1 win.

Soon after the game concluded, the Tottenham forward boarded a private jet back to London.

However, it has now emerged that RB Leipzig striker Hwang Hee-chan, who started against Qatar, and one other staff member have tested positive for the virus.

Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick has confirmed that the 28-year-old will be tested before being allowed to return to training according to Premier League protocols.
