Celebrity fans bid farewell to boxing legend Henry Cooper

Thursday May 19, 2011

Mourners filled the streets of Surrey on Thursday as people travelled from all over the UK to pay their respects to the late Sir Henry Cooper.

The heavyweight boxing champion died earlier this month at the age of 76.

While fans watched his cortege being taken to the funeral, a host of celebrities including Sir Terry Wogan and Bruce Forsyth arrived for the ceremony.

The boxer - nicknamed Our 'Enry by his fans - fought more than 50 times and famously knocked down Muhammad Ali in 1963.
