Muhammad Ali ‘a complete inspiration’ says Klitschko

Former world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has described Muhammad Ali as a ‘complete inspiration’ following the death of the 74-year-old.

Ali was admitted to hospital on Thursday suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson’s disease.

The three-time world champion died at a hospital in the US city of Phoenix, Arizona.

“I look at him as a complete inspiration,” said Klitschko.

“He is not present with us but his inspiration is going to live on forever,” he added.
