Spanish left wing Andres Iniesta was named player of Euro 2012 on Monday by European football governing body UEFA.
The 28-year-old - who was man of the match in Spain's historic 4-0 win over Italy in Sunday's final - was selected by a technical committee made up of 11 people.
Iniesta, who was also their goalscoring hero in the 1-0 win over the Dutch in the 2010 World Cup final, was one of 10 Spaniards to figure in the 23 man squad of the tournament.
Spain's victory saw them become the first national side to win an unprecedented three successive major titles having also won Euro 2008.
