VIDEO: Muhammad Ali's response to what he'd do when he retired shocked everyone

This is excellent...

All day we've been hearing some wonderful stories about the great Muhammad Ali, but this one is one of our favourites.

A child asked him what he'd do when he retired, and after initially having some fun and claiming that sleep was all that was on his mind, he seriously addressed the question.

"No, when I retire from boxing I really don't know, I want to say something right there, this might make you all think," he said.

"Life is not really long, let's say the average person is 30 years old. If you're 30 years old you're not but about seven years old. Add up all the seven, eight, nine hours you slept for 30 years, out of 30 years add up all the nights when you went to bed and this morning don't remember a thing.

"You've been unconscious for about eight years if you're 30 years old. You've slept for about eight years.

"How much travelling have you done in 30 years? From the television station to home to another country to another city to school to church. You've probably spent two years of your life just going back and forth to where you're going.

"So there's eight years of sleeping and two years of travelling, that's 30 years out of your life before you accomplish anything."

He continues on to say even more but we'll let you listen to what he says, it's better that way.
