TARRAGONA, Spain (AP) — First Europe's most important football trophy, then a player of the tournament award and, now, marriage. It's been a good week for Spain's Andres Iniesta.

Iniesta, clad in a navy blue suit, posted a photo on Twitter yesterday with his new wife, Anna Ortiz, which said: "Amazing day! Just married."

The 28-year-old midfielder helped Spain become the first nation to defend their continental crown with last Sunday's 4-0 win over Italy.

Iniesta, who scored the extra-time winner when Spain won their first World Cup two years ago, was named Best Player at Euro 2012 a day later.

Lionel Messi, Iker Casillas, Xavi Hernandez and Samuel Eto'o were among the guests.

People lined the streets leading to the wedding in Tamarit, with Barcelona teammate Gerard Pique tweeting "this looks like the Tour de France".
