A call for a downed helicopter went out at 10.01am, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said. Emergency services attended the scene and put out the fire. All nine people aboard were killed, which included Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and the pilot of the aircraft, among others.

The Los Angeles Lakers star won five championships with the team, often being compared to Michael Jordan.

Bryant is survived by his wife Vanessa and three other daughters - Natalia, Bianca and Capri, with the youngest born in June 2019.

The tragic news comes only hours after he toasted fellow NBA icon and current Laker LeBron James, who had just overtaken him on the league's all-time scoring list to take up third place.
