What was Kobe doing back in class?

Is Kobe Bryant already making serious plans for life after basketball? Possibly so, after it emerged the NBA legend had headed down to Boston College - with the Lakers in town - to sit in on some classes.

Bryant still has at least another two years left in him after signing a contract extension with the Lakers at the back-end of last year but, now aged 35, injuries are beginning to take their toll that little bit more.

The shooting guard spent eight months out of action with a ruptured Achilles tendon and, after finally returning to the court in December, was soon forced back off it again when he sustained a fractured knee-cap.

Maybe this has encouraged Bryant to have something of a re-think about his long-term prospects, which may be why he decided to head to Boston College to pick up a few things during his time out.

Bryant sat in on lectures about international marketing and product management and, as he made clear on Twitter, the learning never stops.

"Learn. Learn. Learn. thank you #BC #internationalmarketing Education never stops."
