The president of Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan, was the best man at German and Arsenal footballer, Mesut Ozil’s wedding on Friday.
With Turkish roots, Ozil, last year, sparked a furore in Germany when he took pictures with Pres. Erdogan before the World Cup.
The 30-year-old later quit international football, citing the “racism and disrespect” he had experienced over the pictures.
Ozil married his fiancée, former Miss Turkey, Amine Gulse, at a luxury hotel on the banks of the Bosphorus.
