“Hi everyone. As you already know everything went well,” he began.
“I’m already at home with my family and I’d like to thank you all for the support, the messages and the positive energy. Thank you.”

On Wednesday, Son once more apologised for his part in the injury, telling BT Sport how he remained sorry and had to focus for the good of the team.
Son scored twice in Spurs’ 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade.
