Jose Mourinho has had quite an impact since he landed the Tottenham Hotspur job -- Son Heung-Min is now scoring goals like Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi.

The Toe Poke is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.

Jose Mourinho's Tottenham cantered to a lively 5-0 win over Burnley on Saturday afternoon to further close the gap on the top four.

While Harry Kane grabbed a brace, the goal of the game was undoubtedly scored by Son Heung-Min, who delivered Spurs' third with a brilliant solo effort.

After picking up the ball on the edge of his own box, Son proceeded to hurtle 80-plus yards up the pitch, bypassing six Burnley outfield players on the way, before tucking a neat finish past Clarets goalkeeper Nick Pope.

A great individual goal, made all the better by the accompanying South Korean commentary.

Mourinho has already psoken of the affection for Son he's cultivated in the short time that he's been at the club, and the Spurs boss revealed after the game that the reigning Asian International Player of the Year has a special place in the Portuguese's household.

"Even before this goal my son calls him 'Sonaldo,' and today he was 'Sonaldo Nazario,'" Mourinho said in his postmatch news conference. "The only thing that came to my mind was a goal where I had the honour to be sat next to Sir Bobby Robson, in 1996, and Ronaldo Nazario scored a goal against Compostela from behind the halfway line and scored a very similar goal.

"I met his parents yesterday, and I understood also where it comes from. The kid is fantastic and I am so happy."

While no one can deny the majesty of Son's masterpiece, how does it rank among these other virtuoso solo golazos?

Diego Maradona (Argentina) vs England, 1986

The most famous example of the art form -- scored in a World Cup quarterfinal, no less -- in which Maradona starts by daintily skipping away from two opponents before carving straight through England's defence to score what became known as the "Goal of the Century."

Lionel Messi (Barcelona) vs Getafe, 2007

Messi almost literally went stride for stride with his legendary compatriot in a Copa del Rey clash by breezing past six defenders with 13 touches of the ball from around 65 yards out -- exactly the same as Maradona all those years before him.

Ryan Giggs (Manchester United) vs Arsenal, 1999

United and Arsenal were locked at 1-1 as extra time wicked away in the 1999 FA Cup semifinal at Villa Park when Giggs intercepted a wayward pass in his own half.

What followed was a swashbuckling 65-yard dribble, some inanimate defending, a crashing near-post finish and then more chest hair than is strictly decent.

Dalian Atkinson (Aston Villa) vs Wimbledon, 1992

Scored in the inaugural year of the Premier League, this goal earned the late Villa striker the Match of the Day "Goal of the Season" and also came to define his playing career.

Having wrestled possession inside his own half, Atkinson ran and jinked his way to the edge of the Dons' box before dispatching the most featherweight of lobs.

Ronaldo (Barcelona) vs Compostela, 1996

Absolutely elemental stuff from the original Ronaldo here, as the 20-year-old prodigy powers from inside his own half to score with a typical mix of brute, brawn and beauty.

Weirdly, Ronaldo later admitted that his only regret about the goal was that he scored it for Barca, and not rivals Real Madrid, whom he subsequently joined in 2002.
