Never-say-die chess puzzle for a happy week!

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Hopeless is not lost in chess. Can something save the day? Possibly for Black this time round. 
In the given position, Black was hopeless and had just given check with Queen on g1 upon which White King moved to g3. But what next?
So, Black to play after Kg3 and not lose. Can you figure out the answer?
