The Barcelona star was one of Spain's most important players in their Euro 2008 campaign, having started every game for La Furia Roja in Austria and Switzerland.
Iniesta produced yet another great display in the final as Spain defeated Germany to lift their first international trophy since their 1964 European Championship triumph.
"In the end, we were able to get a triumph in football as well," said Iniesta, reminding of the country's big achievements in other sports.
"There are no words to describe what one feels in moments like this. We produced a good impression from the first to the last match. We deserved this."
"Everyone, the players and the fans, really wanted to win a trophy like this one and, in the end, we were able to."
