My congratulations to Magnus Carlsen for winning the London Chess Classic and for becoming the highest-rated chess player in the history of our game. 13 was always my number; born on the 13th and the 13th world champion, so it seems fitting that my record lasted 13 years! No one who has followed Magnus’s career can be surprised that he is the one to break it. He did it in fine style in London, showing both brilliance and tenacity. - (note read at closing ceremony of 4th LCC) - Garry Kasparov
