Muhammad Ali hospitalised with respiratory problem
Legendary boxer Muhammad Ali has been taken to hospital with a respiratory issue, according to his spokesman.
Ali, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, was admitted to hospital earlier today. The three-time world heavyweight champion has been in an increasingly frail state in recent years but his condition in hospital is said to be 'fair', according to a statement.
The 74-year-old was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1984, three years after his final fight
