Kirsan Ilyumzhinov called the victory of Magnus Carlsen over Sergey Karjakin in the match for the world title a well-deserved. "I congratulate Magnus Carlsen with a deserved victory in a match for the World Chess crown. I wish him more victories and success!", wrote Ilyumzhinov in a post on Twitter.

"I express my sincere respect to Sergey Karjakin, who fought this uncompromising fight with honour and the highest skill," added the president of FIDE.
