It's worse than being a sore looser. Kramnik is known to suffer from a form of rheumatoid arthritis that is associated with ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis causes open ulcers in the colon, and is associated with frequent bloody diarrhea. It is known that stress increases the likelihood of an outbreak.

There is no reason at all to suspect Kramnik of anything beyond simply outplaying Topalov. But there is appearantly ample reason to suspect Topalov's claim of being a human being to be lacking all evidence.
