An Islamist will take on a former prime minister in Egypt’s presidential election run-off, according to state news agency reports.

With all appeals apparently rejected, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Mursi is said to be through to the second round of the landmark poll.

He will reportedly go up against Ahmed Shafiq, who served under ousted president Hosni Mubarak.

Official results are not due out until later on Monday.
