World Squash Championship: Laura Massaro beaten by Nour El Sherbini in final

The 2017 men's and women's World Squash Championships will have equal prize money for the first time.

The men's and women's champions will each take home $45,000 (£30,675).

The tournaments will both take place in Manchester from 9-17 December - just the second time they have been held side-by-side.

Professional Squash Association chief Alex Gough says the parity in prize money is "a huge step forward that everyone in the sport can be proud of".
