Boxing legend Muhammad Ali was admitted to an unnamed hospital Saturday morning with a “mild” case of pneumonia, his spokesman said in a statement.

Ali, 72, suffers from Parkinson’s disease. His spokesman, Bob Gunnell, said in a statement that Ali is in "stable condition" and receiving treatment from his team of doctors. "Because the pneumonia was caught early, his prognosis is good with a short hospital stay expected," the statement added. It did not offer further details.
