Mohammad Ali was not only a boxing legend, but an activist and humanitarian who showed deep respect towards Imam Khomeini.

The boxing legend uttered several praising expressions on several occasions while describing the divine personality of the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran; Imam Khomeini.

During a historic visit to Iran, he also paid a pilgrimage to the holy shrines of Imam Rida (PBUH) and Imam Khomeini , one of the truthful successors of the holy prophet of Islam to pray for his heeling form a disease. The athlete had been suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson's disease.

The world is mourning the death of boxing legend, Muhammad Ali, who died at the age of 74 late on Friday. Tributes rolled in from around the world just hours after the three-time heavyweight boxing champion died at a hospital in the US city of Phoenix, Arizona.
