Last week, the world came to a standstill after the news that Muhammad Ali had passed away age 74 reached us all. And today, we will say our final farewell to the former world heavyweight boxing champion as his funeral takes place in Louisville.

A 23-mile procession will take Ali's body through his home town, passing key sites in his life.

From the home of his boyhood to the Muhammad Ali Center, thousands of people are expected to gather to say their final goodbyes.

The procession will last 90 minutes and will end at the Cave Hill Cemetery where Ali will be laid to rest.

Rest in peace, Muhammad Ali.
