Tributes continue to pour in for boxing legend

Tributes continue to pour in for boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
The 74-year-old, three-time world heavyweight champion, died on Friday night at a hospital in Phoenix, Arizona.
In his tribute US President Barack Obama said: “Muhammad Ali shook up the world. And the world is better for it.”
The UK Prime Minister David Cameron described Ali as “not just a champion in the ring – he was a champion of civil rights, and a role model for so many people,” while UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Ali had “fought for a better world and used his platform to help lift up humanity”.
George Foreman, who lost his world title to Ali in the famous “Rumble in the Jungle” fight in Kinshasa in 1974, called him one of the greatest human beings he had ever met.
“To put him as a boxer is an injustice,” Foreman said.
The boxing legend will be buried in a private service at the Louisville, Kentucky Cave Hill Cemetery following a public funeral service on Friday at the KFC Yum! Center.

    Muhammad Ali is one of my heroes for the stance he took by refusing to fight in the Vietnam war. To my mind he is someone worth emulating. He lived his life and he definitely was The Greatest. May he rest in peace. A black star has been physically removed but will never be forgotten.
