Classic Kramnik

Another austerely beautiful endgame combination (Rybka sees it immediately):

Kramnik-Van Wely, Corus 2010
White to move

In the final position, Black can underpromote to a Knight, but it's not enough. (I'm at the office and only have time to gape in awe: possibly I'm missing something?)
