Hamza Khan, a squash prodigy from Pakistan, defeated Egyptian Mohamed Zakaria to win the World Junior Squash Championship title in Melbourne last month.

Pakistan had been waiting 37 years for this momentous victory; Jansher Khan was the last player to bring home the coveted trophy in 1986.

The Egypt Squash Federation, however, questioned Hamza Khan’s age the day after the match, claiming he was over-age and not an Under-19 player.

The young squash sensation has since received a clean bill of health from the World Squash Federation (WSF), which exonerated him of any age-related inaccuracies.

The international squash governing body declared in a statement that there was no proof Khan was older than was indicated on his passport.

“The 2023 WSF World Junior Squash Champion, Hamza Khan, has no reason to believe that his actual age differs from the one on his passport,” according to the WSF.

The federation has concluded the investigation and informed the Pakistan Squash Federation and the Egypt Squash Federation of its findings.
