Los Angeles - Vin Diesel choked back tears at the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday night.

The Hollywood heartthrob took to the stage at the prestigious ceremony to pick up the prize for Favourite Movie and Favourite Action Movie for Furious 7.
But the loss of former co-star Paul Walker, who died in November 2013, is something Vin is clearly still coming to terms with.

Struggling to control his emotions, Vin said: "They said to make this short and sweet, so I will try to make this short and sweet. It was a labour of love. My only message to you is you'd be amazed what you can do with love.

"You'd be amazed at how powerful a force that is. 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."

Vin then continued to pay tribute to Paul by singing a few lines of Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's See You Again: "It's been a long day without you, my friend, and I'll tell you all about it when I see you again."
