   In August 1935, Alexander Alekhine played for France in the 6th Chess Olympiad in Warsaw. He won 7, drew 10, and lost none. Alexander arrived at the Polish border without a passport.  When the officials asked him for his papers he replied:  "I am Alekhine, chess champion of the world.  I have a cat called Chess.  I do not need papers."
