The family wanted a private service to mourn their loss

Kobe Bryant and his daughter have been laid to rest two weeks before a planned memorial at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

A private funeral was held in Corona Del Mar, California on Friday February 7, according to multiple reports.

Sources tell Entertainment Tonight Kobe's wife, Vanessa Bryant, and the family "wanted a private service to mourn their loss".

The basketball legend and 13-year-old Gianna were among nine people who perished in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on 26 January.
