Muhammad Ali is seen raising his fists for the final time

3-2

Muhammad Ali raises his fists for the final time in haunting photographs from The Greatest’s last ever shoot.

The harrowing effects of more than three decades fighting Parkinson’s can be seen in the extraordinary images published today by the Daily Mail for the first time.

But so too is the unmistakeable hint of a smile.

British photographer Zenon Texeira was invited into Ali’s home in Phoenix, Arizona, at the end of March with the blessing of the former world champion’s family.

Ali passed away on Saturday aged 74 after a 32-year battle with the neurodegenerative disease.
