Vin Diesel broke down in tears as he paid an emotional tribute to his late friend and co-star Paul Walker at the People's Choice Awards.

As he picked up two awards for Furious 7, a visibly-touched Diesel launched into a rendition of Wiz Khalifa's soundtrack to the movie, See You Again.

Walker was killed in a high-speed car crash in California in November 2013.

Diesel said he wanted to hold back his emotions but was overcome when he was handed the awards.

"When we didn’t want to come back to filming when the tragedy was too heavy, it was the love of everyone combined that saw us through to the end," he told the crowd in Los Angeles.

Wiz Khalifa's track, which features Charlie Puth, is nominated for best original song at next week's Golden Globes.
