Muhammad Ali enjoys Super Bowl, KO’s false ‘dead within days’ reports

Phil Jay 04/02/2013

In a shocking turn of events, British tabloid The Sun has been left red-faced over an apparent story the boxing legend Muhammad Ali was ‘days away from death’ and gravely ill.

The newspaper even quoted the 71 year-old’s brother Rahman as a viable source in confirming that Ali was in a serious condition, leaving fans devastated at hearing what has now been exposed as false news.

In the picture shown, Ali is clearly seen looking well and enjoying the American Football Super Bowl game between The Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers taking place on February 3rd.

The conflicting report is a massive howler for The Sun, which was picked up by the majority of news stations around the world, and will come as a huge relief to all those involved in the sport and beyond.
