Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-mins 11th place finish in this years Ballon dOr is the highest ever recorded by an Asian player in the awards history.

The 66th edition of the prestigious award was handed to Real Madrid star Karim Benzema after he captained his side to La Liga and UEFA Champions League success last season, scoring 15 goals in just 12 games in the latter competition alone.

Son and his teammate Harry Kane were amongst the 30 players nominated for the award after the prolific Spurs duo capitalised on another successful campaign. With 23 goals, Son became the first-ever Asian player to win the Premier Leagues Golden Boot award last season and hes since built on that impressive record.
