Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan served as a witness for Arsenal footballer Mesut Ozil’s wedding to former Miss Turkey Amine Gülşe in Istanbul.
Ozil has been a midfielder for the Premier League club since his transfer from Spanish giants Real Madrid in 2013, The Telegraph reports.
This is not the first time the footballer has posed with Turkey’s president.
The Turkish-German midfielder married his fiance, actress and model Amine Gulse, on Friday at a ceremony along the Bosporus in Istanbul that was attended by many statesmen and celebrities.
Photos of the wedding showed a smiling Erdogan and his wife Emine standing next to the couple as their marriage was formalised.
