The 41-year old spent his entire 20-year career at Los Angeles Lakers, winning a total of five NBA championships and making a total of 18 All-Star sides.

Both of his jersey numbers - No.8 and No.24 - were retired by the Lakers.

He was also a two-time Olympic champion as well as an author, producer, and writer, scooping an Oscar for his 2018 short film 'Dear Basketball' - the visual adaptation of a love letter to the sport from 2015.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

RIP Mamba.
