Bandaríski körfuboltamaðurinn Kobe Bryant lést í þyrluslysi Calabasas í Kaliforníu í gærmorgun.
Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant, dóttir körfuboltamannsins, var einnig um borð í þyrlunni ásamt sjö öðrum en enginn lifði slysið af.
Stjörnurnar um heima allan minnast þeirra tveggja á samfélagsmiðlum en var Bryant gríðarlega vinsæll. Kobe Bryant var einn besti körfuboltamaður sögunnar og mikill sigurvegari. Hann skilur eftir sig eiginkonuna Vanessa Laine Bryant og þrjár dætur.
Hér að neðan má sjá hvernig þekktasta fólk heims minnist Kobe. Söngkonan Alica Keys og Boys II Men minntust hans á Grammy-verðlaununum í Staples Center í Los Angeles í nótt.
Söngvarinn John Legend tók fréttunum mjög inn á sig.
I'm so sad and stunned right now. In Staples Arena, where Kobe created so many memories for all of us, preparing to pay tribute to another brilliant man we lost too soon, Nipsey Hussle. Life can be so brutal and senseless sometimes. Hold on to your loved ones. We miss you, Kobe— John Legend (@johnlegend) January 26, 2020
