Kobe Bryant's Wife gives moving speech at memorial service in LA

Kobe Bryant’s widow has said “I’ll never get to see her walk down the aisle” as she fought back tears during a speech at a memorial for her husband and their daughter.

The sold-out service was held at the Staple Centre, which is home to the Los Angeles Lakers, and is known as the “house that Kobe built”.

The basketball star was killed along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna when the helicopter he was travelling in crashed in Calabasas, California, north of Los Angeles on 26 January.

Vanessa Bryant paid tribute to her husband and daughter as she delivered a eulogy.

She said Gianna – also known as Gigi – would kiss her good morning and good night every day, and that she “was a daddy’s girl but I know she loved her mama”.

She spoke of how she would “never get to see her walk down the aisle” and that Gianna “will never get to have a father-daughter dance with her daddy”.

Ms Bryant recalled the 13-year-old’s advocacy for pay equality in sport, and her dream to play in the Women’s National Basketball Association.
