Muhammad Ali has reportedly been rushed to hospital after falling unconscious at his home.
The incident has taken place in the aftermath of Ali laying to rest his friend and fierce rival Joe Frazier on Nov. 14. Just five days after attending Frazier’s funeral a woman had to call 911 for Ali after he was found unconscious at his home. He was taken to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center.
Ali has suffered from Parkinson’s disease for 27 years and has been in deteriorating health.
A police spokesman has told the Star: “The victim started to pass out in the car and when they got him into the house he fell unconscious.”
He added, “The 911 tape was filled with details of prescriptions and medical details about the victim who was suffering from an on-going medical condition.”
It is believed that Ali has since made a quick recovery, but it is not clear what caused his episode.
A number of reports have come out over recent weeks concerned about Ali’s health after he appeared frail at Frazier’s service at Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, last month.
Ali has been married four times and has had nine children; seven daughters and two sons.
