    Muhammad Ali

    So, simple question - how good was Ali?

    Well this is what he once said of himself...

    "I'm not the greatest, I'm the double greatest. Not only do I knock 'em out, I pick the round. I'm the boldest, the prettiest, the most superior, most scientific, most skilfullest fighter in the ring today."

    The world is waking up to the news that legendary boxer Muhammad Ali has died, aged 74. 

    The former world heavyweight boxing champion, perhaps the most iconic sportsman of them all, died at a hospital in the US city of Phoenix, Arizona, after being admitted on Thursday.

    He was suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson's disease.

    The funeral will take place in Ali's hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, his family said in a statement.
