The above was taken from the Drudge Report (http://www.drudgereport.com/) last night and is still up this morning. It is the first time I recall seeing anything about Chess on Drudge, and because I begin my day at http://www.el.com/, and can click onto most of the web, I began checking out the DR years ago. After clicking onto the link one is taken to The Guardian, where one finds this:

Chess: American 12-year-old closes in on world record for youngest grandmaster

Abhimanyu Mishra poised to break Sergey Karjakin’s mark of 12 years seven months despite going six months without playing in a tournament due to Covid-19

It is an excellent article which contains the following picture:
