Kosteniuk wins the second game too, in which Goryachkina never had a sniff of a win, and takes the title.
I thought it was drawn after white's 59th move albeit that wins the match for Kosteniuk anyway.

Yes, that's what it has on chess24, not that it matters; bit surprised, but well done

Ah OK, my mistake, I thought I heard them refer to a resignation on the commentary.
"Do you play chess?"
"Yes, but I prefer a game with a better chance of cheating."
