A DNA test has determined that the late chess champion Bobby Fischer is not the father of a nine-year-old Filipino girl, her lawyer has said.
The Supreme Court in Reykjavik had ordered Mr Fischer’s body exhumed to prove whether Jinky Young was Mr Fischer’s daughter.
However, lawyer Thordur Bogason said the report “excluded Bobby Fisher”.
The US-born chess player died in Iceland in 2008 but left no will. His estate is estimated at $2m (£1.4m).
“The DNA report excluded Bobby Fisher from being the father of Jinky Young, and therefore the case has come to a close,” said Mr Bogason.
