Viswanathan Anand ranked # 1 in chess

Viswanathan Anand has been ranked as the World’s No. 1 chess player. This is a hugely significant and proud moment for Indian sport as he has reached where no other Indian has in a sport as competitive and widely played as chess.

It has been three decades and a half since chess players began to be rated. Anand is only the sixth player in history — and the first Asian — to be ranked No. 1.
