Madrid: France striker Antoine Griezmann tied the knot with his long-term partner Erika Choperena in a secret ceremony at a beauty spot in Toledo, Spanish media revealed yesterday.
The 26-year-old, who last week extended his Atletico Madrid contract until 2022, met Choperena in San Sebastian when she was studying and he played at Real Sociedad.
The pair, who have a one-year-old daughter, were married Thursday afternoon at the Palacio de Galiana, a celebrated 11th-century edifice in the old Spanish capital. Several of Griezmann's Atletico teammates attended the ceremony including Juanfran, Koke and fellow Frenchman Kevin Gameiro.
In a short video on Griezmann's Instagram account the player is also seen popping a champagne cork at a celebration around a pool. "The celebration of this wedding took the media by surprise," said Spanish daily El Mundo.
