Muhammad Ali was reportedly taken to hospital after falling unconscious at home just days after his frail appearance at a funeral for Joe Frazier.
Ali was last seen in public at a Philadelphia service for his fellow boxing legend on November 14, but a woman called 911 for him five days later.
The call came from the 6,000 sq ft estate he shares with wife Yolanda in  Paradise Valley, Arizona, reported Star magazine and RadarOnline.

The 69-year-old has suffered from Parkinson’s disease for 27 years and was taken to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center.
‘The victim started to pass out in the car and when they got him into the  house he fell unconscious,’ a Paradise Valley Police spokesman told  Star.
‘The 911 tape was filled with details of prescriptions and medical details about the victim who was suffering from an on-going medical condition.’
It has not been revealed what Ali was treated for or how long he spent at the hospital – but he has now recovered.

A source close to Ali told Star he has had various medical specialists in Phoenix so the family must have ‘really been scared’ to have called 911.
Fears were raised about his health after he appeared very frail at a two-hour service at the Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church in Philadelphia,  Pennsylvania, last month.
Reverend Jesse Jackson asked mourners to rise and clap for the former  heavyweight champion Frazier, who handed Ali his first loss in 1971.

A weak and trembling Ali, wearing a  dark suit and sunglasses, rose from his seat at the service and  energetically applauded his rival ‘Smokin’ Joe’.

Police spokesman
Ali’s relatives and friends have told  Star he may only have months left to live, but still enjoys spending  time with his grandchildren.
Widely-seen as the best sportsman of all time, Ali was born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr in Louisville, Kentucky, and won an Olympic gold in 1960.
Ali married his fourth wife and childhood friend Yolanda in 1986 and they  have had one son, Asaad. In total Ali has seven daughters and two sons.
