Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is in intensive care embroiled in his most courageous battle for his life.
The children of the icon have rushed to be at his bedside as doctors treating the former heavyweight champ have told them they fear he “is near the end”.
Already four of the 74-year-old’s nine children, including daughters Laila, Hana and Maryum, are at the hospital in the Phoenix area where medics continue to fight a breathing problem picked up by the star.
The children flew in last night from around the US as doctors said the future survival of the champ was “uncertain”. Although there were discussions about transporting him to another area of the hospital, sources claimed doctors decided the move “potentially could be deadly,” and the transfer was called off.
