It would be more interesting to see him struggle and have to prove himself again, not just sit on it till old age.
Like this, he'll just bow out suddenly and do something else, and he'll say he wanted to step aside.
He did struggled and almost lost on this position, his opponent made a slight move order blunder and played h5, instead of playing pawn to f8= Queen then after Rook take Queen King take Rook then after his king advances to e5, all that he had to do was to play his King to g7 and secure a Win.

I realized that he Blunder twice, he could still have won after playing h5, all that he needed to do was move the same pawn again to h6 and secure the winning position regardless of what he does with his Rook or King.

What happened here? Carlsen was white and missed it?

Sorry I had the wrong position, here it is, but Queening the pawn first should be an easy win for Andreikin and he missed itby playing h5?
