Muhammad Ali, the three-time heavyweight champion of the world and global icon, died Friday at a hospital in Phoenix. He was 74.

In 1984, the boxer was diagnosed with Parkinson’s syndrome, a disease thought to be brought on by head trauma. He retired from the ring in December 1981 with a 56-5 record and the title of the most recognizable person on Earth.

On Thursday, Ali was hospitalized for a respiratory issue as a precaution, and by Friday, his issues were serious enough to draw family members to his bedside.

The official Twitter account for the boxing legend paid tribute to him Friday night, and it remains filled with flashback photos, motivational quotes and even posts from "the Champ himself."

His last tweet came on May 10 when he wished friend Bono a happy birthday.

Denoted by the #AliTweet hashtag, here are the boxing legend's most recent tweets.
