RIP The Greatest

Genuinely gutted this morning
We've lost some legends this year but none come close to the loss of Ali IMO.

Many years ago I worked in Euston Tower, London, which had Capitol Radio on the ground floor. One lunchtime I came out to see a crowd gathered around Muhammad Ali, who'd just been interviewed there.

I hadn't realised what a huge man he was - he stood a clear head above everyone else in the crowd. In proportion though - not gangly, but tall, broad and muscular. I wouldn't have wanted to stand up to him!





The older I get, the better I was...

I heard yesterday he was rushed in to hospital.







Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

Listening / watching it all today, great tributes. I've cried (well seriously welled up!!) but mostly I've laughed and felt so proud of what he achieved. We should definately celebrate his life not mourn his death

I remember sitting with my dad watching his fights as a child and laughing at his antics
