Muhammad Ali's Condition Reportedly Takes Turn For The Worse

Prayers for "The Greatest."

A Radar Online report is claiming that Muhammad Ali has been placed on life support Friday, adding that his loved ones fear that it “likely won’t be long until he passes away.” 

This comes after reports surfaced earlier in the day that his respiratory condition may have been worse than originally reported and that it's being complicated by his Parkinson's disease, which he has valiantly battled since 1984.

One source told Radar Online that Ali's vitals "are terrible" currently.

“He needs every bit of fight he’s got left to survive,” a different source told the website about the 74-year-old former three-time world heavyweight boxing champion and beloved global sports icon. “Doctors are telling the family that it likely won’t be long until he passes away.”
