Legend is a much overused description but in Ali's case it is wholly appropriate. How fortunate we have been to enjoy his presence in and out of the ring. There will never be another like him.

He was a good boxer, but I still regard him as a cheat.Our Henry beat him fair and square.Few can say that.

I didn't realise he had parkinsons for 32 years!
Not far off half of his life,I wonder how much the boxing had to do with him having it?
What an awful disease.
