Unseen photos of Muhammad Ali in Brixton revealed

Photos of Muhammad Ali at a school in south London have been revealed for the first time.

Neil Kenlock photographed him on a visit to Tulse Hill School in Brixton in the early 1970s where 1.800 pupils crammed into the main hall to hear him.

He even invited one pupil to spar with him.

Mr Kenlock said: "In those days nobody cared about Brixton, but Muhammad Ali would leave America and come to London and insisted he should go to the black community and meet young boys and girls to inspire them

BBC London's Emma North also speaks to musician Neil Hunningale who was a 15-year-old pupil when Ali visited the school.
