Muhammad Ali died on June 3 at the age of 74.
The legendary boxer had been suffering from respiratory symptoms which were linked to Parkinson’s Disease.
Since he died, prominent artists, politicians, and public figures — from Barack Obama and Donald Trump to Sean Diddy Combs and Hamilton auteur Lin Manuel-Miranda — have paid homage to the boxing great.
Here’s what some are saying:
