And the Spurs star was snubbed by the Shed End as he took on the set piece.

According to The Athletic, footage has emerged showing a racist gesture towards the player.

Back in April 2021, three Manchester United season ticket holders were suspended after online abuse of Son following the Red Devils’ 3-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And two years earlier, a West Ham supporter was fined for racially abusing Son during a Carabao Cup match.

Sunday’s game ended in a 2-2 draw after a heated encounter between Chelsea and Tottenham.

Kalidou Koulibaly put the hosts ahead in the first half with a superb volley from a corner.

In the middle of the second half, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg equalized.

But Reece James put Thomas Tuchel’s side back in front with 13 minutes to go.

It looked like Chelsea would keep the three points they deserved.

But in added time, Harry Kane stepped up to bring home a dramatic late equalizer to nab a point for the visitors.

And the drama continued after the final whistle, when Tuchel and Antonio Conte almost clashed a second time in the afternoon and exchanged words after an explosive handshake.

Both managers received red cards for their actions.
