Turkish president Erdogan to attend Muhammad Ali funeral

"I think the whole world is sad". I got to study and feel and embody the soul of the man.

Muhammad Ali died Friday at age 74.

He had been admitted to hospital earlier in the week with a respiratory condition having suffered with Parkinson's disease for 32 years.

Residents have left flowers, balloons and tributes at Ali's childhood home and Fischer said: "The champ was a supernatural figure who crossed all kinds of boundaries, from athletics to arts, to humanitarian activities, from black to white, from Christians to Islam, and he belongs to the world".

"I hold his hand, thank him, tell him that I'll pray for him and kiss his forehead as I say goodbye", he said.

"Our city, Louisville, is going to be sending him off with great class, dignity and respect".

Israel revokes travel permits, deploys troops after attack
Since then, bodies have been returned through either court orders or special agreements made with the Palestinian Authority. Meanwhile, friends and colleagues have been remembering one of the victims, university professor Michael Feige.

While Muhammad Ali was concerned over his daughter's boxing career at first, she pressed on. She retired with an undefeated record.

It was also very clear in the interview that Laila was at peace with her father's death.

While she said she wasn't comfortable discussing her father's final moments, she said she was happy all his children were able to be at his side when he passed on.

"He was a loving father". I'm happy for that even though I will miss him deeply. "He was a spoiler", she said with a laugh. "He wanted the memorial service to reflect that".

Will Smith will be a pallbearer at Muhammad Ali's funeral. "They need inspiration from others to make them strong in areas that they're not naturally strong". "So, I have comfort in knowing that he's not suffering anymore". When asked whether he had grown tired of fighting the condition, Ali said death was one of the things her father feared and "he definitely wouldn't want to just move on". "We have lost a great icon", said Manyuchi. I know he's in a better place now and he's talking again and moving again and doing all the things that he couldn't do in his body. The legal case against him that led to an appeal in the summer of 1967 meant he missed almost three years of his boxing career before returning to the sport in 1970.

While more than 2,500 brass stars are embedded along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and several blocks on Vine Street in Hollywood, California, Ali's star remains the only one that hangs vertically.
