World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen gets a 'World Champion Welcome' on Reaching Home (Video)

Posted by World Chess Championship 2013 News Blog Thursday, November 28, 2013
World No. 1, and now World Chess Champion, Magnus Carlsen received a huge welcome by journalists and fans at the Oslo airport in Norway on Wednesday evening (India time 6.30 pm). The Qatar Airways flight carrying the young talent and his team was greeted with water cannons - a salute employed last time in 2009, in Norway, when singer and violinist Alexander Rybak reached after winning the Eurovision Song Contest.

"It's great to be home. I really appreciate that there is such a huge crowd here," he said in a brief press conference. "I'm already looking forward to defending the title, no matter who the opponent is." 

For the immediate future, he added, "I'm just going to sleep and relax."
