    What a huge loss for mankind. He was an amazingly generous man.

    He was, let's say, a unique presence on the court. Nobody moved like he did! He inspired his countrymen and women and gave a face to Sudan. Sorry to lose him so young.

    What a great loss!
    The world is better for his presence here.

    I'm grateful that his suffering has ended.

    His commitment to humanitarian efforts was a great example of someone using his fame for a great purpose. He's had an impact on a lot of people.
