Boxing legend Muhammad Ali hospitalised for pneumonia
Boxing legend Muhammad Ali has been hospitalised with pneumonia, a spokesman said on Saturday.
But fans don't have to worry just yet.
The boxing legend is expected to recover because the illness was caught early.
Ali,72, was admitted to a hospital Saturday morning and is being treated by a team of doctors and remains in stable condition, said his spokesman Bob Gunnell.
The statement also said: "Because the pneumonia was caught early, his prognosis is good with a short hospital stay expected."
The three-time world heavyweight champion was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease three years after he retired from boxing in 1981.
His last public appearance was in September to attend a ceremony in Louisville, Kentucky, for the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards.
