Kiwi wins French Scrabble crown

Nigel Richards - November 2014

Nigel Richards won the English-language Scrabble world championship in 2007 and 2011

The French-language Scrabble world championship has been won by a New Zealander who does not speak a word of French, competition organisers say.

Nigel Richards defeated a rival from French-speaking Gabon in the final in Louvain, Belgium, on Monday.

Mr Richards is reported to have learned the French dictionary and conjugations in nine weeks earlier this year.

A previous English Scrabble champion, he originates from Christchurch, New Zealand, and is now based in Malaysia.
