Son was in the starting 11 for Spurs’ 1-0 Premier League win against Palace yesterday afternoon.

The club released a statement today confirming the South Korean forward had been abused.

They said: “We are aware of an allegation of racial abuse towards Heung-Min Son during yesterday’s match.

“Discrimination of any kind is abhorrent and has no place in society, our game and at our Club.

“We are working with Met Police and Crystal Palace to investigate and identify the individual involved.

“We will do everything in our powers to ensure that if found guilty, the individual will receive the strongest possible action – as was the case earlier this season when Son suffered similar racial abuse at Chelsea.”

Son has been targeted multiple times since signing for Spurs in 2015.

In February, the club was forced to issue a statement after he was subjected to “utterly reprehensible” racist abuse.

The abuse came after Spurs beat West Ham 2-0, with Son coming on to score the second goal.

Tottenham later demanded social media companies take action against trolls.
