Chess boxing

Chess boxing is a hybrid sport that combines chess with boxing in alternating rounds. The sport was invented by Dutch artist Iepe Rubingh, who was inspired by a French comic book Le Froid Equateur by artist and filmmaker Enki Bilal. Chess boxing is a fast growing sport, with large followings in Berlin and London, where most events take place. Several other chessboxing events have taken place around the world, including in Los Angeles, Tokyo, Nantes (France), Reykjavík (Iceland), Amsterdam, Calcutta (India) and Krasnoyarsk (Russia). Participants must be skilled as both boxers and chess players, as a match may be won either way.

Revellers take part in the annual “Naval Battle” of Vallecas in Madrid, Spain July 19, 2015. The slogan for this year's water battle is “Get wet for Alfon, freedom for Alfon”, referring to Alfonso Fernandez Ortega, a Vallecas resident who was sentenced to four years in prison in June. The festival was started spontaneously in 1981 when some neighbours started to throw water at one another due to high temperatures during the Virgen del Carmen Festival.
