Children of the legendary boxer have reportedly rushed to be by his side
MUHAMMAD Ali is apparently "on life support" after being hospitalised recently.
The legendary boxer was taken to hospital suffering with respiratory problems.
According to The Mirror, 4 of the fighter’s 9 children have rushed to be by his side after doctors said that his survival was “uncertain”.
A source told the publication: “Like in the ring, Ali is a fighter on the ward.
“Doctors are working to regulate his breathing but it is being hampered by his Parkinson’s.
“His children are all extremely concerned and dropped everything to be with him. They fear the worse.
“Ali is everything to them and there are worried his problems are worse than first feared.”
A spokesperson for Ali previously confirmed that the 74 year old was in hospital, calling his condition “fair”.
Bob Gunnell said: ”Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, is being treated by his team of doctors and is in fair condition.
"A brief hospital stay is expected. At this time, the Muhammad Ali family respectfully requests privacy."
He has been hospitalised a number of times in the past few years. Guests at his home rushed him for treatment 2 years ago when he failed to wake up.
The three-time heavyweight champion was diagnosed with Parkinson’s syndrome in 1984 - it’s thought the condition was due to the head trauma he received during his boxing career.
