Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi granted outgoing interim-leader Adly Mansour the Nile Medal of Honour, Egypt's highest award, in recognition of his role in running Egypt during the nearly year-long transitional stage following the 30 June 2013 protests which led to Mohamed Morsi's ouster. 

The decision came during an evening ceremony for El-Sisi's inauguration at Cairo's Al-Quba palace.

Mansour, who was appointed by Morsi as head of the High Constitutional Court, was sworn in as interim president on 4 July 2013, a day after the Egyptian army ousted the Islamist president following nationwide mass protests against his one-year rule.

El-Sisi took his presidential oath on Sunday morning after he won a landslide in the 26-28 May presidential election, gaining almost 97 percent of the vote.
