Mesut Ozil and fiancee make wonderful gesture ahead of wedding

The German 2014 World Cup victor married former Miss Turkey Amine Gulse in a ceremony at the luxurious Four Seasons hotel on the Bosphorus.

German footballer Mesut Ozil has tied the knot, with Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as his best man.

Ozil, a German player of Turkish descent, quit Germany's soccer team previous year after he was criticized for posing for a photograph with Erdogan before the World Cup.

Ozil has dated Gulse since 2017 and the couple announced their engagement in June 2018.

Ozil announced in March this year that he had asked Erdogan to be his best man.

Following the emergence of photographs of Ozil and Manchester City's Ilkay Gündogan presenting Erdogan with a jersey before last year's World Cup in Russia, the DFB (German Football Federation) were deeply critical of their players' actions.

Erdogan's appearance at the footballer's wedding, however, comes as no surprise, as the politician is famous for attending the weddings of Turkish celebrities, especially when elections are approaching.

The previous election, which saw his AKP candidate narrowly defeated, was annulled in a move which drew harsh criticism from the worldwide community.

The third-generation Turkish-German was born in Gelsenkirchen and was a key member of his country's 2014 World Cup-winning side. He was questioned by some people from Germany about where his loyalties lie.

Criticism intensified after the red-faced defending champions crashed out of the first round of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

After the humiliating defeat, Ozil posted a lengthy statement announcing his resignation from the national team.

He said he was being blamed for Germany's disappointing World Cup performance.
