Baku, July 12, AZERTAC

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger and tennis player partner Ana Ivanovic have tied the knot at a ceremony in Venice, according to the Daily Mail.

The newlyweds, who began their relationship in 2014, looked glamorous as they emerged from Venice City Hall after saying their vows on Tuesday.

Schweinsteiger, 31, sported a navy blue two-piece suit for the occasion while 28-year-old Ivanovic donned a traditional pristine white wedding dress.

After emerging from the wedding venue holding hands, the pair made their way to a waiting boat, which whisked them away a short time later.

Former Germany captain Schweinsteiger and Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open champion, were snapped taking a boat ride around the Floating City in the same boat on Monday night.

The pair were flanked by two men in white shirts and black blazers, who appeared to be bodyguards.

Close friends and family of the happy couple jetted out to Italy alongside Schweinsteiger and Ivanovic on Monday - the day after the Euro 2016 final.

Schweinsteiger clearly planned on playing in that match with Germany, but Joachim Loew's side were knocked out in the semi-finals by hosts France.

German media claim friends and family had no idea where the wedding was taking place but were just told to turn up at Munich Airport on Monday morning before being whisked away in a private jet.
