The "Greatest of All Time" has passed away. Legendary boxer Muhammad Ali has died, his official website confirmed.
"After a 32-year battle with Parkinson's disease, Muhammad Ali has passed away at the age of 74. The three-time World Heavyweight Champion boxer died this evening," Bob Gunnell, Muhammad's family spokesman, told NBC News on Friday, June 3.

The sports legend was first diagnosed with Parkinson's in 1984, three years after he retired from boxing.
Throughout his 22-year career, Muhammad, who was born Cassius Clay and changed his name when he converted to Islam, won the title of World Heavyweight Champion three times and rose to fame as a powerful — and quotable — star.

World figures, celebrities, and fans immediately mourned the loss of the icon, and his daughter, Rasheda Ali took to Twitter to honor her late father.
"The Greatest Man that ever lived," she wrote. "Daddy my best friend & my Hero You R no longer suffering & now in a better place."
Our hearts go out to the family.
