Novak Djokovic pays tribute to Kobe Bryant as he wins eighth Australian Open

Novak Djokovic honoured the late Kobe Bryant as he was crowned Australian Open champion for the eighth time. The Serb won a five-set thriller in Melbourne against Dominic Thiem 6-4, 4-6, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. Speaking afterwards in the Rod Laver Arena the No 2 seed, wearing KB embroidered on his jacket in honour of the NBA legend, said ‘this is a reminder to all of us that we should stick together, now more than ever….There are more important things in life’. Kobe Bryant died after a helicopter crash in Los Angeles in late January
