Zurich: Five-time world champion Viswanathan Anand continued to struggle with his form and had to be content with a fifth-place finish after a poor show in the rapid section of the Zurich Chess Challenge that concluded here.

Staying joint fourth spot on four points after the Classical games, Anand could manage just one point out of a possible five in the rapid section that has always been his forte and finished with an overall score of just five points out of a possible 10 in the six-player event.

World champion Magnus Carlsen got a scare but still managed a clear first place on 10 points by scoring just two points in the rapid section that was dominated by Fabiano Caruana of Italy.
