Jamaican player showed sportsmanship:
Estonian chess player Knepp Miles, 39, fainted while playing against Jamaica’s Shaw Jaden. When he fainted after Jaden’s 39th move, Miles was in a winning position. He was taken to a private hospital, where his condition was stated to be stable. Not seeing the timing and instead winning the game, Jaden offered a draw, which the captain accepted. Estonia won the match 3.5–0.5.
