In response to the terribly sad news that boxing legend Muhammad Ali has died, BBC One have made some changes to tonight’s TV schedule.

The channel will be paying tribute to Muhammad Ali with a special documentary. Muhammad Ali: The Greatest will air between 9:30pm and 10:50pm.

You can see the tweet from the BBC One account below:

The second episode of season three of The Musketeers, which was due to show at 8:30pm, will no longer be shown tonight and will instead air at a later date. The Musketeers slot will be filled by Casualty which will be moved an hour forward.

BBC Radio 5 Live has also cleared its evening schedule to celebrate the life of Ali. The 7-hour show will be presented by Stephen Nolan and feature reactions and tributes as well as stories and interviews.

Ali, the former world heavyweight champion, died in hospital in Phoenix, Arizona on Friday night. He had been battling a respiratory illness and was aged 74.

Our thoughts go out to Ali’s family and friends at this difficult time. The world has lost an absolute legend.
