Young Indian chess player D Gukesh, who recently won the International Chess Federation (FIDE) Candidates Chess Tournament 2024, attended a fan meet-up in Toronto, Canada.

The 17-year-old Indian on Monday created history as he won the FIDE Candidates Chess Tournament 2024, becoming the youngest-ever challenger to the world title after an exciting final round in Toronto.

FIDE took to X (formerly Twitter) on Wednesday to share some clips of him from a fan meet-up held at Trinity Bellwoods Park, where he interacted with fans, signed autographs and clicked pictures with them.

"Gukesh D, winner of the 2024 #FIDECandidates, at a fan meetup in Trinity Bellwoods Park, Toronto, organised by @ChessbaseIndia! @DGukesh chatted with small kids and answered their questions, signed autographs and happily smiled for selfies!," tweeted FIDE.

Gukesh became only the second Indian player to win the Candidates Tournament, after Viswanathan Anand. Five-time world champion Anand's victory came in 2014.

In Round 14, Gukesh used black pieces to hold rival championship contender Hikaru Nakamura to a draw and secure his victory.
