Float Like a Butterfly Sting Like a Bee

Muhammqad Ali has died aged 74. Perhaps the greatest sportsman of our age.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-16011175

And here are some of the tributes paid to him:

Always remember his interviews with Parky.

He was  a very entertaining boxer to watch. One which I enjoyed watching myself.

Though his racist views would probably lose a lot of fans today.

And come on, Henry did beat him.

@billnotben 

At least Henry is still with us... oh hang on, he's long gone as well. Roll_eyes

Both legends and neither will ever be forgotten. Thumbs_Up

Re: Float Like a Butterfly Sting Like a Bee

Whilst I was reading the page about D-Day I saw this item  about Muhammad Ali. It was in the sidebar. Just checked again and it's been removed. Sorry everyone.
