Recently boxing legend Muhammad Ali was rushed to the hospital because of pneumonia, but his family said he was getting better and he was eventually sent home.
Sadly, it has now been confirmed that the legend is back in the hospital and he’s still battling a pretty serious case of unitary tract infection.
Boxing icon Muhammad Ali was checked back in to hospital on Thursday for the second time in less than a month for follow-up care, after suffering from a severe urinary-tract infection in December.
Ali was initially hospitalized late last year for what was originally believed to be a mild case of pneumonia, but was later determined to be a urinary tract-infection, reports the Associated Press.
However, the sporting legend is hoping to recover soon and plans to celebrate his 73rd birthday on Saturday at home with his family, said Ali family spokesman Bob Gunnell.
Sad to hear. I hope he gets better soon.
Get better soon CHAMP!
I’m keeping him in my prayers.
