Fly high with the angels’ — tributes pour in for Kobe Bryant

Tributes have begun to flood in for Kobe Bryant, US basketball icon, who died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California at the age of 41.

The NBA star was travelling alongside three other persons including Gianna, his 13-year-old daughter, on Sunday, when his private helicopter crashed. There were no survivors.

The basketball legend and his daughter were reportedly on their way to the Mamba Academy for a basketball practice when the crash occurred.

Fans, colleagues, celebrities, sports organisations across the globe have taken to social media platforms to pay him their last respect.

“Kobe was a legend on the court and just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day,” Barack Obama, former US president tweeted.

All our thoughts are with the families of those affected by this tragic accident. You will forever be missed, Kobe,” AC Milan, Italian football club wrote.
