Boxing legend, Muhammad Ali passed away on Saturday, 4th June and tributes have poured in from across the world since the news broke.

Ali had battled Parkinson's Disease arising from his time in the ring and it would appear that his final months on earth were captured by British photographer,Zenon Texeira.

Texeira was invited into Ali’s home in Phoenix, Arizona where he took the haunting shots.

Ali's 32-year fight with Parkinson's Disease is evident in the shots, even though his unmistakable resolve shines through still.

Reports from family members say that in recent years the Greatest of All Time was unable to speak and instead communicated through 'winks and smiles'.

Ali will be laid to rest on Friday, 10th June and his family has said Will Smith and former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis will be among his pall bearers.
