Boxing legend Muhammad Ali dies at 74
The three-time world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali has died at the age of 74 late on Friday at a hospital in the U.S. city of Phoenix, Arizona.
He had suffered -for three decades- from Parkinson's syndrome and had spent the past few days being treated for respiratory complications.
Ali's funeral will take place in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
After winning light-heavyweight gold at the 1960 Rome Olympics, "the Greatest" beat Sonny Liston in 1964 to become the world champion. He retired in 1981; won 56 fights and lost five.
