Magnus Carlsen can add another achievement to his eclectic resume.
The 22-year-old Norwegian, whose smoldering good looks have landed him modeling gigs and a magazine cover, was crowned the world chess champion today in India.

Carlsen secured a draw against defending champion Viswanathan Anand, 43, in 10 games, with two left to play.
The new champ, who has been called the “Justin Bieber of chess” tweeted a photo of himself after his win, wearing a full suit and soaking wet in a swimming pool.
Carlsen is the second youngest player to win the title. Russian Garry Kasparov was younger by just a few weeks.
