Aronian: ''With great regret I have to inform you about my withdrawal from the FIDE World Cup 2021''

Dear all, with great regret I have to inform you about my withdrawal from the FIDE World Cup 2021. Having a high fever and tonsillitis, despite my great desire to play, I have to be rational and put mine, and the health of other players first.
I want to personally thank the FIDE President Mr. Dvorkovich for taking all possible actions to help me in any issues I got.
Please take care of yourself, and hopefully the tournament will continue without any misfortunes.
I promise to get healthy soon and come back to the magical world of 64 squares!
