Sting: Kasparov is one of my heroes! #TweetOftheDay

Famous musician, singer, and songwriter Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, known as Sting, published an interesting photo with the former World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov. “Breakfast in Helsinki with Garry Kasparov, one of my heroes“, wrote Sting.

Garry Kasparov tweeted that he is glad to see his friend Sting in Helsinki, adding that they had more fun this time, without a chess board, than in 2000 in Times Square when they got to play a game of chess. See the posts and photos below

Sting’s interest in chess inspired him in 2000 to invite legendary Garry Kasparov to play a simul against his band in New York City, on ABC’s television show “Good Morning America.” Kasparov defeated Sting in the 45th move and won all four games against the band.
