As expected, the mainstream press is abuzz with news of Kramnik's victory. From London to Moscow, from Texas to Cuba - they're all talking about this excellent and deserved victory by Vladimir Kramnik.
In one of the more frequently used pieces, Mikhail Savinov, writing for AP, cites the defeated Veselin Topalov as saying, "Life goes on, I am 31, and I still have a chance to fight for the champion's title".
Topalov's reaction is to be expected I suppose and it is in marked contrast to Kramnik's own reaction. The Russian apparently planned to get drunk! Good luck with that then Vlady.
