Russian news sources are reporting that the former world champion, Boris Vasilievich Spassky is seriously ill, having been hospitalized after suffering a stroke.

Spassky, now 73 years old, fully recovered from a previous stroke in 2006, but the tone of news reports suggest that this time it is more serious, and the tenth world champion is fighting for his life.

Spassky was world chess champion from 1969 until 1972, taking the title from Tigran Petrosian and losing it to Bobby Fischer.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Boris Vasilievich!

    Borris in spite of its last disease is better!

    Mr. Boris Spassky...   A true champion that many fail to realize his genious knowledge in chess. Bobby Fisher had to learn the russian language to study russian books to have a chance at defeating the great Spassky because he failed so many times before. I personally feel that Spassky was the better player. Now my idol is in need of support and prayer, not chess praise. I pray that u recover fully Mr. Spassky. And i hope ur health gets stronger. God bless u and ur family

    Boris is my favorite player of all time. I still maintain if he and Bobby had played their WCC match when Boris was at his peak and without the mind games Bobby used we could well have seen a different result. God be with you Boris and I hope you pull through.
