Tributes have been pouring in for former basketball star Kobe Bryant, who has died in a helicopter crash in California.

The 41-year-old, a five-time N-B-A champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, is considered one of the greatest players in the sports history.

It's reported nine people were killed when the aircraft came down, including Bryant's 13-year-old daughter Gianna.

Local police said they were informed of reports of a downed aircraft at around 10am local time on a hillside at Las Virgenes Road and Willow Glen Street.

The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed that an S-76 helicopter crashed this morning "under unknown circumstances" and that they are investigating.

Last night NBA players started a match in Texas by stopping the clock for 24 seconds -- Bryant's shirt number.
