A Muslim funeral procession for Muhammad Ali on Thursday attracted thousands of fans to the boxer’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, where mourners prayed over the body of a man who battled in the ring for years and gave hope to young people.

About  14,000 people, from different races and creeds, attended the jenazah, or “funeral” in Arabic, where he was repeatedly feted as “the people’s champion.”

Ali, a three-time heavyweight champion known for his showmanship, political activism and devotion to humanitarian causes, died on Friday of septic shock in an Arizona hospital. He was 74.
