The Telegraph has dedicated a long feature to Magnus Carlsen. It is composed of the author's (reflections and memories, and his new interview with Carlsen.

For example, answering the question of who he would play if he could challenge any chess legend in history, the World champion said:

"I think the top ones would be Fischer and Capablanca, maybe Mikhail Tal, but I think I would beat Tal pretty easily. Fischer would be more difficult, but I think I could beat him too."

Chess takes most of Magnus Carlsen's time, but what about relationships? "I have time to go out and have fun when I’m at home. But I haven’t come very far in terms of settling down and starting a family."

Has he ever been in love? The world chess #1, who will celebrate his 25th birthday on November 30, admits:

"I don’t think so. I’ve been infatuated, of course, but not in love. No."
