The Norwegian retained his world chess title on 23 November.
Magnus Carlsen, who was crowned world chess champion for the second year in a row on 23 November, took the honorary kick-off before Real Madrid's match against Celta Vigo (8pm CET). The Norwegian, a self-confessed Madrid supporter, also enjoyed this experience on 30 November last year ahead of the Whites' La Liga match against Valladolid.
