    SIR Henry Cooper, one of Britain's most famous sportsmen who famously knocked a young Muhammad Ali to the canvas with his trademark left-handed hook, has died.
    During a glittering career which saw him win British, European and Commonwealth heavyweight titles, Cooper cemented his status as one of the best boxers in British history.

    He died two days before his 77th birthday at his son's home in Surrey. His health had deteriorating over recent years, with one close friend saying he had never recovered after the death of his wife.

    We've lost one of our greats. A gentleman, a sportsman, and a bl00dy good boxer. Thanks, RasA4, for posting that footage. Best possible tribute.
