Turkish star midfielder Arda Turan tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend in Istanbul with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan acting as the marriage witness.

Apart from the commander-in-chief, the small-scale ceremony was also attended by the first lady, Turan's teammate Emre Belozoglu and other high-profile guests.
