Novak Djokovic has become the latest star to pay tribute to Kobe Bryant.
Bryant, one of the NBA’s all-time greatest players and an athlete of global renown, was killed at age 41 on Sunday in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles along with his 13-year-old daughter and seven others on board, officials said.
And Djokovic, who paid a moving tribute to Bryant on Instagram on Monday in which he called him a mentor and a friend, came onto court for his quarter-final against Milos Raonic wearing a training top with KB and 8 and 24, Bryant’s numbers, written on it.
