Kobe Bryant, a former Basketballer, has died at 41.
The Los Angeles Lakers superstar, who won five championships with the team, died Sunday in a helicopter crash in the Los Angeles County suburb of Calabasas.
Reports say the helicopter, which belongs to him, had three other people on board.
An 18-time NBA All-Star, Bryant was widely considered to be one of the greatest basketball players of all-time. He was voted the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2008 and went on to win two gold medals with the USA Men’s Basketball team in 2008 and 2012.
In 2018, Bryant won an Academy Award for his short film, “Dear Basketball.”
He is survived by his wife, Vanessa, and four daughters – Gianna, Natalia and Bianca and Capri
