LIVE: Muhammad Ali’s procession is underway

@TheUndefeated

Today, the world turns its eyes to Louisville to say goodbye to The Greatest. Muhammad Ali’s funeral will take place starting at 2 p.m. today, but first, his casket will make a 19-mile journey through the city he grew up in. The procession is officially underway, starting at the A.D. Porter Funeral Home (4501 Bardstown Road) and ending at the Cave Hill National Cemetery:

Thousands of people are lining the route, which will take Ali’s casket by several places significant to him in his life, such as his childhood home, the Ali Center, the African-American Heritage Center, and more.

The pictures and videos of the crowds on social media are truly moving:

World leaders, celebrities, and sports stars are in town for the funeral, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who posed at the Ali Center memorial this morning:

You can watch the procession live on WHAS11.com:

Stay tuned for more pics and videos throughout the day…

    Just a thought…why don’t you go down there and share some of your opinions?
    We’ll see if you can slip punches like Ali!
    You are a very hateful person.

    Meant my comment to be a reply to this misanthrope Howdy Doody. His comment exceeds the limits of free speech. This could be considered an incitement to violence; and is certainly hate speech.
    Really, Mrs T; what does it take to get someone banned? BBN doesn’t need him.

    It is so great to see Louisville in the eyes of the world today. As an athlete, he is the greatest. Just incredibly peaceful and great to see the procession around the city. WLKY anchor said that even with all of the animosity in todays world, every religion and color seems to be involved today, and thats what Ali would have wanted.
