Bees join mourners at Muhammad Ali center

</head> As fans of heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali gather at the Muhammad Ali Center, bearing flowers and other tributes..... thousands of bees are swarming a nearby tree, in what some fans see as a sign from their hero.

That's because the bees are gathered in a tree next to a mural of Ali's famous quote, "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."

Museum officials had to call a beekeeper to deal with the bees.

The keeper said it's not unusual for bees to gather in swarms in May and June, but the spot they picked is.... Officials at the museum in Louisville were dealing with the bees no the same day as the champion's body arrived in the city, which will honor its native son with a public funeral and other ceremonies.

The death of the boxing great, known as much for his political activism as his boxing brilliance, has triggered a worldwide outpouring of admiration and affection for him.

And an unexpected tribute to one of his most famous sayings.
