New Delhi: Kobe Bryant's retirement on Thursday was by far the biggest sporting news of the day.
After a 20-year career in the National Basketball Association, the Los Angeles Lakers star played the last game of his professional career in front of an adoring Staples Center crowd.
The Hollywood ending to one of the most celebrated careers in sports was complete after Kobe dropped 60 points against Utah Jazz.
Among the host of celebrities from the sporting world to pay tribute to the retiring legend was none other than Virat Kohli.
Taking to social micro-blogging site Twitter, the Indian batsman revealed the one quality of Kobe he admired most.

Like the American, Kohli too is known for his drive for the game of cricket. No wonder the Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper identifies with the five-time NBA champion.
