Google Doodle pays homage to Pakistani legendary squash champion Hashim Khan

Google honoured Pakistani squash icon Hashim Khan by customising his very own doodle where he can be seen hitting every shot on the squash court, at various stages of his life.

Who was Hashim Khan?

Born near Peshawar, young Khan practiced and perfected the spot barefoot on brick courts at a British officers’ club where his father worked. He was, in fact, a ball boy at the club’s squash courts. By the age of 28, he developed an understanding of the sport, enough to win him three All-of-India titles through 1944 to 1946. After the partition of India, Khan represented Pakistan at the 1951 British Open where he hit it off the court and bagged the grand prize, returning home as a hero to a million people waiting to greet him.
