Retired boxing champion Muhammad Ali is reported to still be in intensive care awaiting test results after being found asleep and unresponsive by guests at his home in Scottsdale, Arizona last night.

According to a source, “He wasn’t responding. 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.”

Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s Disease, had been hospitalized on December 20th with what was thought to be pneumonia, but was later determined to be a severe urinary tract infection. He was subsequently released from hospital on January 6th. He was planning to celebrate his 73rd birthday on January 17 with family and friends, presumably at his home in Arizona.

‘My daddy is a strong man. He’s so resilient and we’re all very grateful and blessed,’ daughter Rasheda Ali-Walsh said at the time.

Ali and his wife, Lonnie, have homes in Paradise Valley, Arizona; Berrien Springs, Michigan; and in Louisville.
