Apparently he had a phone call from Gaddafi and was keen to tell the media about it. He was described as President of the Internation Chess Federation as well as his own republic. I heard the clip on the PM programme at about 5.10pm.

Didn't catch it at the time, but it's on iPlayer now:

Brief conversation starting at 8:25 into the programme. No context given as to why Gaddafi should be phoning Ilyumzhinov.

Perhaps MG was seeking an asylum and that he and KI could ride off into the sunset seeking happiness together? :lol:

An alternative explanation is that MG was a contestant on "Celebrity Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" :D
