Muhammad Ali in hospital in critical condition

Muhammad Ali, 72, was admitted to an Arizona hospital on Thursday night after guests in his home failed to wake him up. He was put into intensive care at the hospital where he is currently being treated.

This follows a hospital trip just over one week ago where he was treated for a urinary tract infection.

The Mirror reports:

“He went to bed Tuesday night, but didn’t wake up in the afternoon or evening the next day. He was sleeping for 24 hours.’

“They thought he might be too exhausted.”

Last night Ali was initially taken to intensive care and is now said to be resting surrounded by his wife Lonnie and daughter Hana at an undisclosed hospital.

“They’re doing tests and results may not be back until tonight,” said the source.

“So for now, he’s resting.”

Last night, a spokesman for the boxer confirmed Ali had been taken back to hospital.

He said he had been readmitted for continued treatment of urinary tract infection.

The development came just a week after Ali fought off a severe urinary tract infection.

Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, was diagnosed with the brain disease about three years after he retired from boxing in 1981.

Over the past five years his public appearances have become less and less as he continues to battle the crippling condition.

Three months ago reports surfaced the Olympic gold medalist’s health had deteriorated so much he was unable to speak.

He also failed to attend the premiere in Hollywood of the new I Am Ali movie due to his frailty.
