YEN.com.gh has learned that Nike has run out of Kobe Bryant’s products days after the basketball star lost his life in a helicopter crash.
An earlier report showed that Bryant died in Southern California together with his daughter, Gianna and others.
Preliminary investigations show that the foggy weather was primarily responsible for the unfortunate incident on Sunday, January 26, 2020.
Soon after his death, tributes poured in from people all over the world, including those from sports journalist, Yaw Ampofo Ankrah, footballer, Fernando Torres, and former president of the United States of America, Barack Obama.
Days after the unfortunate accident, Nike has reported that it has sold all Kobe Bryant-related merchandise.
Per a report by blackenterprise.com, Nike initially had plans to release a new celebratory colorway of the Kobe 5 Protro on Feb. 7, 2020, but is having second thoughts about releasing it soon after his death.
The company first signed Bryant to a four-year, $40 million contract back in 2003, when he was 24.
After his retirement in 2016, Nike assisted him in establishing the Mamba League kids basketball programme.
In other news, the prime minister of the United Kingdom (UK), Boris Johnson, has released a statement as the nation leaves the European Union at 11 pm on Friday, January 31, 2020.
According to Johnson, the nation’s exit from the EU is ‘not an end, but a beginning.’
Hailing the new era, he pledged to transform Britain’s neglected areas and in a later address, is expected to express his belief that the referendum that led to the present situation was a vote for lasting change.
Johnson, per a report by dailymail.co.uk, is also expected to convene a symbolic Cabinet meeting in Sunderland, which was the first city to declare for Brexit when the 2016 referendum results came out.
