Farewell to a great sportsman

Recommended Posts


Mohammad Ali arguably the most well known sportsman the world ever produced. Farewelled today, his service was viewed around the world. 


Often controversial but respected and loved for his sporting ability and his determination to stand up for his beliefs.


RIP Great man, you were the best.
