Mike Tyson visits Makkah and Madinah

Former boxer Mike Tyson, who converted to Islam in the 1990s, has gone on a pilgrimage to the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.

Tyson, who was world heavyweight champion from 1986 to 1990, arrived in Madinah on Friday with the Canadian Dawa Association for the umrah or minor pilgrimage.

From Madinah, he will travel on to Makkah and also plans to visit other Saudi cities. (Source)
