Norwegian chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen has become the world champion, beating Indian title holder Viswanathan Anand.
Carlsen, 22, secured a draw to win the World Chess Championship.
Carlsen won the 12-game match in Chennai, India, with a score of 6.5-3.5. The win means that Carlsen achieves the record of having the highest new rating of all time.
But he just misses out on being the youngest player ever to win the tournament.
That honor goes to the Russian Anatoly Karpov, who remained undefeated for 13 years.
