Just stumbled across that one. OK, that's yellow press, but at least, it's about the world chess champion.

My translation (Norwegian is my third foreign language):

Carlsen has a beloved one!

Chess star Magnus Carlsen (26) is in a relationship, his manager confirms. Carlsen's private Facebook profile reveals that he entered a new relationship with Synne Christin Larsen (22) on Valentine's Day (FEB-14).

"I can just say that's true, but otherwise, Magnus doesn't want to say much more," Carlsen's manager Espen Agdestein says to [the publishing newspaper] VG.

Acording to the local newspaper "Vesterålen Online", Larsen is from the small village Alsvåg, Øksnes commune in Nordland.

The love life of the threefold world champion has been a mystery for a long time. In november 2013, he cryptically answered "we'll see" when an Indian journalist asked when Carlsen would disclose the name of his beloved one.

In 2014, there were rumors that there might be more between Carlsen and Kate Murphy, CEO of the game "Play Magnus".

"It's funny that people believe that, but it's not true," Murphy said and laughed when VG took up the rumors of romance.

In an interview with The Guardian in 2013, Carlsen told about what kind of girls he doesn't like.

"I really dislike being out and meeting girls who start to talk about how they played chess with their grandfathers when they were young. I can't stand that. It's boring. I'd prefer to talk about anything else," he said.

Carlsen took up love life when we got featured by Hans Olav Lahlum in VG Weekend before the WC in 2013. Then he indicated "single" as civil status.

"I purposely didn't opt for long term relationships as to keep completely focused on chess. It isn't easy to combine a relationship with travelling and competing as much as I do now," said Carlsen, who confirmed that he had several short term relationships - and added that he might "reconsider" the plan not to engage in long term relationships.
