Seeing reports that young Indian IM Praggnanandhaa Rameshbabu, who tried and failed to get a norm in Australia, has now got his 3rd GM norm and is going to become the second-youngest GM in history behind Karjakin subject to confirmation.

Seems he got the norm target with a game to go and celebrated by mating his opponent with a bishop pair in the late middlegame in his final round game.

That is accurate, as documented on the Chessbase site (https://en.chessbase.com/post/praggnanandhaa-a-game-away-from-becoming-a-grandmaster).

Not a huge fan of Wikipedia jumping the gun (on various pages) by declaring players to be GMs before their title has been applied for and awarded.
