Muhammad Ali back in hospital after he was found 'unresponsive in his bed' : Report

Boxing great Muhammad Ali is back in the hospital after being admitted to a hospital ICU after he was found "unresponsive" by guests staying at his Scottsdale, Arizona home. 

"He wasn’t responding," a source told Radar Online, as the champ was preparing for his 73rd birthday on Jan. 17.

"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."

"They thought he might be too exhausted," added the source. 

The three-time heavyweight champ is currently undergoing tests to determine what is wrong, with results expected on Friday. 

Ali, who suffers from Parkinson's disease,  was released from a hospital on January 6 for a severe urinary tract infection, and headed home to celebrate his birthday with his family and friends.   

"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.

He was hospitalized December 20 with what was initially believed to be a mild case of pneumonia. Doctors later determined Ali was suffering from the infection.

While his public appearances have diminished in recent years as he continues to battle the debilitating Parkinson's, Ali still enjoys getting out and watching sports and visiting friends.

Ali retired from boxing in 1981 and has devoted himself to social causes since then.

Get well Champ.
