In August there were conflicting and worrying reports that former world chess champion Boris Spassky had either fled, or been taken against his will, from his home in Paris back to Russia.

Spassky had lived in France with his third wife since 1976, and had been receiving treatment for a second stroke which he suffered in 2010.

Now some more information about the fate of Boris Vasilievich has emerged after the great champion spoke about his recent experiences in an interview with WhyChess.
