After starting the tournament with around 20,000 followers on Instagram, he now has a stunning view 1.7 MILLION.

His stunning surge in followers is partly due to an old video of Cho that has gone viral on social media over the past few days.

A clip of him sitting on the bench for his club side has been viewed over 7.4 million times on Twitter.

Cho looks set to overtake national hero and Tottenham star Son in popularity.
