It’s a sad but glorious day for the world as a man of valor and substance triumphantly passed on into the great beyond this morning.
The legendary Muhammad Ali, a 3-time heavyweight champion of the world died after his respiratory condition – a ripple effect of his Parkinson’s disease – got worse.
Just as Nigerian celebrities have flooded their social media timelines with tributes, people around the world are also mourning the loss of the sport icon through twitter.
