Former president Bill Clinton delivered a eulogy for Muhammad Ali at the boxing legend’s funeral on Friday.​

Clinton, Bryant Gumbel and Billy Crystal were among the notables that honored Ali, who died last week at the age of 74. Services were held at the KFC Yum! Center in Ali’s birthplace of Louisville, Kentucky. 

Below is the video of Clinton arriving with Ali’s wife, Lonnie, who also spoke at the service.

Ali is widely regarded as one of the greatest boxers of all time, and leaves a legacy of activism away from the ring as he does dominance within it. The three-time world heavyweight champion is survived by his wife, Lonnie, and nine children.
