muhammad ali gi Muhammad Ali home from hospital; champ treated for dehydrationFormer heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali is home and “well, happy and carrying on with his daily routine” after undergoing treatment for dehydration in November.

A spokesman for Ali’s family tells the Associated Press that the champ is home in Scottsdale, Ariz., and that reports in Star magazine about his hospitalization were “blown out of proportion.”

Star, via RadarOnline, reported that Ali was hospitalized after “slipping out of consciousness.” Paramedics were reportedly dispatched to his house after a call to 911.

“The victim started to pass out in the car and when they got him into the house he fell unconscious,” Alan Laitsich, a spokesperson for Paradise Valley Police, told Star.

Ali, 69, suffers from Parkinson’s Syndrome. He was last seen in public, according to the AP, at fellow boxer Joe Frazier’s funeral in mid-November.
