Donald Trump takes to Twitter after Kobe Bryant's shocking death

Kobe Bryant's daughter Gianna also died in the Calabasas helicopter crash that killed their father.

Emergency personnel responded but no one on board survived.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski independently confirmed the report.

The news of Bryant's death came as a surprise to the continent's stars who paid their respects to the two-time Olympic medallist whom they described as "a legend". According to ESPN, another player and parent were on the helicopter.

Kobe is survived by his wife and three daughters.

Spokespersons for LA county sheriff's office and LAPD did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment. She was 13 years old.

Kobe played 20 years in the NBA - all for the Lakers - and was eligible to join the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame this year.

Bryant played his entire professional career with the Los Angeles Lakers and won five National Basketball Association championships.
