The world is still mourning the loss of NBA legend, Kobe Bryant, and the celebrity tributes continue to pour in.

Celebs took to social media in droves to pay their respects to one of basketball's most iconic figures.

Former President of the United States, Barack Obama, issued a statement via Twitter following the news of Bryant's shock death.

"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," Obama tweeted.

Bryant was on his way to a youth basketball game with his daughter Gianna Bryant, 13, when the helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told the press that there were no survivors, and there was a total of nine people on board the helicopter.
