Jahangir Khan is a former World No. 1 professional squash player from Pakistan, who is considered to be the greatest player in the history of squash.

During his career Khan won the World Open six times and the British Open a record ten times. From 1981 to 1986, he was unbeaten in competitive play. During that time he won 555 matches consecutively, the longest winning streak by any athlete in top-level professional sports as recorded by Guinness World Records.
