A mural honouring late NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna has appeared on a wall in Los Angeles, as seen in footage from Tuesday.

The artwork, which was completed on the same day as Bryant and his daughter perished in a deadly helicopter crash, was painted by graffiti artist Jules Muck.

Fans of Bryant have already begun making visits to the site, leaving flowers and candles at the scene.

Bryant died in a helicopter crash along with his 13-year-old daughter and seven others, near Calabasas on Sunday.

An investigation into the crash has been launched by two federal government agencies, with focus expected to fall on bad weather conditions and any mechanical failures.

Widely regarded as on of the greatest basketball players of all time, Bryant spent his entire 20-year career at the Lakers, winning five NBA titles and winning the 2008 Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.
