This front page headline about Muhammad Ali is getting plenty of abuse

On a day of fitting tributes, this isn't one.

Muhammad Ali's immense talents as an athlete were only matched by his razor-sharp mind and incredibly charismatic presence. Aside from being a three-time world heavyweight champion, Ali also won gold at the 1960 Olympic Games and was named "Fighter of the Year" by Ring Magazine more times than any other fighter.


All this without even mentioning the fact that he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame and that he's only one of three boxers to be named "Sportsman of the Year" by Sports Illustrated.

Truth be told, Ali's quotes and endless amount of entertaining interviews have provided journalists from around the globe with plenty to write about as they try to tell the story of his remarkable life, both inside and outside of the ring.

There has already been some magnificent words and stories told about 'The Champ' following his sad passing and there's going to be even more because the majority of media outlets have been glowing in their tributes to a true sporting and cultural icon.

Here's a look at a few of the front pages.



One paper that didn't get their tribute right though is The Sun because this effort has been described as 'classless', 'shocking' and 'disgusting'.

Here's the headline itself along with the online reaction.
