Muhammad Ali died Friday at the age of 74, according to a statement from the family. He was hospitalized in the Phoenix area with respiratory problems earlier this week, and his children gathered around him.
He was considered as the greatest athlete of all time and was an inspiration to billionaires. Bollywood celebrities too took to Twitter to mourn the loss of the legend.
Muhammad Ali get well soon. Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can’t hit what the eyes can’t see.
