Boxing legend Muhammed Ali died after spending five days at a hospital. He was first admitted with respiratory problems. His family was by his side when he breathed his last. He was 74.

Ali's family has revealed plans for a Friday funeral in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, a daylong affair that will include a procession through the streets where the 74-year-old world champion grew up and learned to box. His body is expected to be returned to the city within two days.

Eulogies from former President Bill Clinton, journalist Bryant Gumbel and comedian Billy Crystal will be included in the service.

He'll be buried in a local cemetery with only family watching.
