Russian news sources are reporting that the former world champion, Boris Vasilievich Spassky is seriously ill, having been hospitalized after suffering a stroke.

Spassky, now 73 years old, fully recovered from a previous stroke in 2006, but the tone of news reports suggest that this time it is more serious, and the tenth world champion is fighting for his life.

Spassky was world chess champion from 1969 until 1972, taking the title from Tigran Petrosian and losing it to Bobby Fischer.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Boris Vasilievich!
