He was a star athlete, a devoted activist, but little public know, Muhammad Ali was also a grade A prankster.
Need proof? A YouTube video — originally posted in 2013, but recirculating in the wake of Ali’s death. In the video, a sequence of school kids explaining what they’d do if they got to meet Ali. One kid even enthusiastically challenges him to an arm-wrestling match.
Amazingly, that challenge comes to fruition when Ali strolls into sight — and it’s a pretty close competition.
