The guy just can't hold his tongue. With a talent for theatrics, Veselin Topalov's manager, Silvio Danailov, now likens FIDE's decision to reject their challenge bid as being like Satanism! Outrageous, Danailov says.
So, the Topalov camp is off to court.
News.bg quotes Danailov: "We will take this to the Lausanne Court of Arbitration for Sport...We will file a complaint as soon as we go through the decision of FIDE Presidential Board and see what their motives are".
And speaking of Satanists, the French blog - Echecs, Cinéma, TV et DVD... Léger - spots certain uncanny similarities between Topalov and actor Bela Lugosi. Mr Lugosi was once famous for his portrayals of Dracula! (Our thanks to Boylston and The Knights of Castle Kimbark blogs for that one).
