  • Beyoncé presents Colin Kaepernick with Muhammed Ali Legacy Award

Beyonce made a surprise appearance at the Sports Illustrated ceremony where she presented Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.

Beyonce said she was "proud and humbled" to present the award to Kaepernick, who was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem before the games, in protest against oppression of people of color. She also explained why the former 49ers quarterback was the ideal person to take the award home this year. I accept this award not for myself, but on behalf of the people.

An MRI revealed there is no structural damage in Curry's right ankle.

The gong is given to an athlete who uses their fame and platform to promote change, which quarterback Kaepernick did when he knelt during the US national anthem at various American football games to draw attention to racial discrimination and acts of police brutality. Thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction.

"No matter what I have to sacrifice, if you see wrong in the world, you must say that it is wrong", Kaepernick told the children.
