R.I.P.

The sports world has lost a legend.

Boxing great Muhammad Ali passed away Friday at 74 years old from respiratory complications.

On Thursday, the fighting champ was hospitalized due to the issues. While a spokesman initially said in a statement that the acclaimed athlete was in fair condition and wouldn't be staying in the medical facility for very long, his ailment was reportedly complicated by his Parkinson's disease.

The sports star has suffered with the disease for three decades.

The Kentucky native was a true icon in the boxing world, amassing a professional record of 56 wins and five losses, and was only knocked out once.

The three-time World Heavyweight Champion was even nicknamed "The Greatest" because of his impressive legacy.

Our hearts are with everyone affected by this tragic loss.

So scary.

Oh no. We hope Muhammad Ali can pull through.

On Thursday, the boxing legend was checked in to a Phoenix-area hospital after suffering from respiratory issues. And while the 74-year-old's rep had said he was alright and wouldn't be in the medical facility for very long, it appears the ailing athlete isn't actually doing that well.

According to NBC News, a well-informed source says the former heavyweight champ is in "grave condition." Earlier, insiders had also said that the fighter's longterm battle with Parkinson's disease is complicating his condition.

MJF's last TV show was more than a decade ago, and his new show, The Michael J. Fox Show, has him happier than ever to be working again — especially because it hits so close to home. The premise is that a local Manhattan television anchor returns to work after five years at home with his family because he's diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

A new scientific study just linked some very random findings!

Apparently, people who have ever had a head injury and who were also exposed to the herbicide paraquat had almost a three times increased risk of developing Parkinson's disease.

UCLA's Fielding School of Public Health took a survey of over 1,000 adults.

Of those people, about 357 had Parkinson's disease.
