No official role for Muhammad Ali in opening ceremony - but he desires to meet the Queen

Muhammad Ali, the greatset and the Black Superman, will attend Friday's London Olympics opening ceremonies but will not be officially involved.

Ali, who bagged the Olympic Gold in 1960 at Rome Olympics, is presently in London for philanthropic functions to benefit the Ali Center, including the new Generation Ali Beyond Sport Award, as told by his wife Lonnie Ali to USA Today Sports.

Ali who is due to fly back the the States, however, desires to meet the Queen before he flies off the Michigan. Lonnie Ali said. "We've driven past her gate several times. He probably won't get that opportunity.''
