Mohamed Elshorbagy has maintained his world number one status for the tenth consecutive month as he remains at the top of the October Professional Squash Association (PSA) men's rankings.
Elshorbagy's success comes as his country Egypt sets a record of becoming the first nation ever to boast seven players inside the world’s top ten.
The two-time World Championship runner-up has now marked 23 months as number one in total, taking him to sixth in the all time rankings list.
The 25-year-old is joined by compatriots Omar Mosaad who is ranked third, Karim Abdel Gawad in fourth and sixth placed Ali Farag in the top ten of the standings.
Ranked seventh is Mohamed's brother Marwan Elshorbagy, whilst Ramy Ashour and Tarek Momen sit in eight and ninth.
It means Egypt have overtaken the previous record mark of six players inside the top ten, which was set by Australia in 1990.
Elsewhere in the men's top ten, France's world champion Gregory Gaultier is in second place whilst his compatriot Mathieu Castagnet sits in tenth.
England's Nick Matthew is ranked fifth.
In the women’s world rankings, 20-year-old world champion Nour El Sherbini of Egypt has maintained her status as world number one, holding off England’s Laura Massaro who sits at number two.
Another Egyptian, Nour El Tayeb, is now tenth and has broken back into the top ten of rankings for the first time in six months.
She completes a five-strong contingent of Egyptian players at the the summit of the women’s game, which includes Nouran Gohar at number four, Raneem El Welily at five and number eight Omneya Abdel Kawy.
American Amanda Sobhy has moved up one spot to a new career high of six, overtaking Frenchwoman Camille Serme, who now sits seventh.
New Zealand’s Joelle King moves up two places to ninth.
