Chess champion Bobby Fischer dies

The history of chess, as might be expected for such an intense and cerebral activity, has produced more than its fair share of eccentric characters, from the very first world champion, Wilhelm Steinitz, who spent some of his later years in a lunatic asylum, to Viktor Korchnoi, who brought a sparkle to a more recent title match by accusing his opponent of passing coded messages in yoghurt pots, but there has never been anything quite like Bobby Fischer who was, in the opinion of many, the greatest player of them all.
