Julio Iglesias has been ruled to be the biological father of a 43-year-old man by a Spanish court.

"The fact that some photos show Mrs Santos and Julio Iglesias together that summer in a professional context is no proof", Falomir told TV channel A Punt.

The judge in Valencia, on Spain's Mediterranean coast, said he based his ruling partially on the "obvious" resemblance between the two men.

The judge's ruling issued on Wednesday said "there existed contacts and a relationship between the mother of (Sanchez and Iglesias) near the date of conception".

Mr Santos has spent much of his life seeking to prove he was the product of a 1975 fling between his mother, Portuguese former dancer Maria Edite, and Iglesias.

His other children include the Latin pop superstar Enrique Iglesias. In 1992, a Spanish judge ruled that the singer was indeed Sanchez-Santos' father, but the ruling was quashed on appeal in 1994, according to El Pais.
