Viswanathan Anand added another feather to his cap when he successfully defended his World Chess title in Bonn on Wednesday night.
The Indian ace drew the 11th game with Russia's [Images] Vladimir Kramnik [Images] to clinch the 12-round final 6.5-4.5 and emerge champion with a round to spare.
In winning his latest crown Anand became the first champion in the history of the game to win the World Championship in all possible formats -- a feat even the now-retired Garry Kasparov [Images] cannot boast of, since he stayed away from the knock-out World Championships.
For the record, the 38-year-old Anand, who slipped out of the FIDE's top three after more than a decade in the latest rankings earlier this month, won the knock-out World Championship in 2001 and the World Championship match tournament in 2007.
Join us in congratulating the king of the 64-squares arena.
