Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan became the best man at German footballer with Turkish roots Mesut Ozil's wedding in Istanbul on Friday.
Erdogan and his wife Emine were seen standing next to Ozil and his fiancée, Swedish-Turkish actress and former Miss Turkey, Amine Gulse.
Last year, Ozil retired from German international football at the age of 29, citing 'disrespect, insults and pressure... Еще.' He and teammate Ilkay Gundogan were widely criticised by German media and right-wing groups for posing in a photograph alongside Erdogan.
