Reading Time: 1 minute

 

A handout photo made available by the Turkish President Press office shows Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (2-R) his wife Emine Erdogan (R) attend a wedding ceremony of German soccer player Mesut Ozil (C) and his fiance Amina Gulse (2-L) at the Hotel Four Seasons Bosphorus in Istanbul, Turkey.

Ozil, who has Turkish roots, sparked a furore when he posed in photos with Mr Erdogan before the World Cup last year. He then quit international football, citing the “racism and disrespect” he’d experienced over the photos in Germany.
