Turkish President Erdogan Takes On Role Of Witness For Mesut Ozil's Wedding
Arsenal soccer player Mesut Ozil married former Miss Turkey Amine Gulse in Instanbul.
According to CNN, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attended and his wife attended the wedding as the legal witnesses.
The fact Ozil chose Erdogan caused controversy because those roles are normally filled by people close to the couple.
Before going into politics, Erdogan played semi-professional soccer and often interacts with prominent players of Turkish descent.
