Photos from Muhammad Ali’s burial

Thousands of people gathered on Friday to pay their final respects to Muhammad Ali, as a jovial funeral procession, highlighted by fans who chanted and threw flowers, gave way to a more somber memorial service in Louisville, Kentucky.

Ali's memorial service at the KFC Yum! Center started at 3 p.m., an hour after it was originally scheduled.

In a eulogy, President Bill Clinton said he wept “like a baby” while watching Ali take the final steps to light the Olympic cauldron in 1996 in Atlanta, during his presidency. He also recalled a time when he caught Ali holding two fingers behind his head to form the shape of bunny ears, ABC News reports.
