Former United States President Barack Obama took to Twitter on Sunday to offer his condolences to Kobe Bryant’s family following news of the death of the Los Angeles Lakers great, as well as his daughter Gianna and three others as the result of a helicopter crash on Sunday morning, January 26th 2020.
The former president, an avid basketball fan who welcomed Bryant and his Lakers teammates to the White House on multiple occasions, posted a message on social media mourning the death of Bryant and his daughter Gianna, who was also on the helicopter when it crashed. He wrote:
‘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’.
