Both Russia and India were jointly declared winners on Sunday in the online Chess Olympiad tournament. Both received gold medals. This decision was taken due to server malfunctions in the final which could not be completed. Actually, during the match, two players of India, Nihal Sarin and Divya Deshmukh were disconnected due to the server connection. Then Russia was declared the winner. India then opposed this disputed decision.

FIDE President Arkady Vladimirovich Dvorkovich later decided to give gold medals to both teams. India became the first champion in the Chase Olympiad history. Russia has won it 24 times (18 times the Soviet Union).
