Muhammad Ali, one of the greatest icons — sports or otherwise — of the 20th century, died on Friday at a Phoenix-area hospital. He was 74 years old.

Ali's role as one of the greatest boxers of all-time played only a small part of his legendary status around the world. He was also a Civil Rights champion whose final fight — his 30-year battle against Parkinson's Disease — was perhaps the most notable of his entire life.

Many athletes, young and old, have been inspired by Ali, and the Indianapolis Colts' players and coaches, current and former, are no exception. Here's how many of them reacted to the news of Ali's passing late Friday and early Saturday on social media, in no particular order:
