Queen Elizabeth II's 90th Birthday Celebrated With Style and Grandeur
Kuala Lumpur, 1 May 2016
Tan Sri Dr Francis Yeoh said: "We at YTL are very proud and honored to sponsor this very special celebration tonight. We can only ever understate the virtues of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. She more than lived up to the dictum 'rex non potest peccare, the king can do no wrong.' May our Lord Jesus continue to bless her always."

Her Excellency British High Commissioner Vicki Treadell’s speech paid homage to The Queen as someone who has spanned history and played a part in its making, and praised the relationship between the UK and Malaysia. She also paid special thanks to YTL Corporation and the Yeoh family for sponsoring the event.

“The Queen has been part of the UK and Malaysia’s journey together as two nations. Today, our relationship is one of partnership, underpinned by strong two-way trade and investment education links, collaborations in scientific research, defense and security engagement.

In more recent decades we have seen groundbreaking Malaysian investment in Britain go from strength to strength whether in retail brands like Laura Ashley or in utilities like YTL’s Wessex Water or the regeneration of our city centres like Battersea’s transformation from a derelict and redundant site to a vibrant new destination in London. Our ties have never been deeper nor broader. Today we are partners in a modern age.”

Tan Sri (Dr) Francis Yeoh honoured by Muhammad Ali Foundation and Celebrity Fight Night
Phoenix, Arizona, 14 April 2016
Malaysian business tycoon Tan Sri (Dr) Francis Yeoh was honoured with the prestigious Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night Award at The Celebrity Fight Night Fundraising dinner in Arizona last night.

The awards were presented in front of celebrity guests including Country Queens Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood as well as the former World Champion and sporting icon Muhammad Ali, who was attending the event for the first time in two years.

Accepting the award from Ali’s wife Lonnie Ali, Dr Yeoh said: “Thank you Lonnie and to everyone here tonight. I’m just so shocked and surprised to be among the honourees.

“The most amazing thing I did during my time here in Arizona was to go to the Muhammad Ali Centre. And what I saw there was your hearts helping people with this terrible disease.

“I’d also like to thank all the nurse and doctors I met at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Centre. I had tears in my eyes to see these angels, these unsung heroes, who are continually working every day making sure they improve the lives of people with Parkinson’s.

“Our great hero said something I’ll never forget - ‘The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses. Behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.’

“And I see all of this tonight. I see your hearts and in all of you, I see the generosity in your hearts.

“I want to thank our Lord Jesus for giving me this honour to be able to share with you my heart and I give him all the credit and the glory.”

Previous recipients of the Muhammad Ali Fight Night Award have included Hollywood actors Halle Berry, Jim Carrey and Arnold Schwarzenegger and chat show legend Larry King.
