David Beckham Shares His Painful Feelings After The Timeless Death Of Kobe Bryant

The former footballer and model, David Beckham, has shared a bunch of special photos of the unforgettable Los Angeles Lakers player, Kobe Bryant, and his daughter, Gianna Bryant, on his official and verified Instagram account.

On Sunday, the successful NBA player has died aged 41, after the helicopter he was traveling in crashed over Calabasas. All nine people on board died, including Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna.

The day after the tragic news, David Beckham has posted some special photos of himself with Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna Bryant on this Instagram post. Also, he penned down a very emotional statement with the photos. In the statement, he mentioned the past days of them and explained what he felt.

Here’s the caption of David Beckham:

“It’s taken me hours to work out what to write and still, my words won’t ever be enough to describe how I am feeling after the tragic loss of Kobe. This was one special athlete, husband, father, and friend.

Having to write these words is hard enough but also knowing we have lost an amazing human being and his beautiful and talented daughter Gianna is heartbreaking.

The commitment Kobe showed to his sport was inspiring, to go through the pain and to finish a game off like only he could inspire me to try to be better.

Sometimes I would only go to games just to watch that clock go down to the last 2:00 minutes knowing that we were about to witness something special. Kobe always talked about Vanessa and his beautiful girls and how proud he was of them.

Kobe’s passion was his family and basketball. He was determined to inspire the next generation of boys and girls to embrace the sport that he loved. His legacy will live on.

My family’s love and prayers go out to Vanessa and the girls, to Kobe’s basketball family, and of course to the families of those who were tragically lost with him yesterday… 💛💜”
