Paul Walker's co-stars from Fast And Furious paid tribute to the late actor following his funeral on Saturday, two weeks after the 40 year-old died in a car crash.

The beloved star was laid to rest at the Forest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles in a private ceremony attended by only his closest friends and family. Following the service around 200 people attended a memorial on the Universal lot, where his father Paul Walker Snr, his siblings and manager Matt Luber led the tributes to the star, E! News reports.

"It was just very sad."

Taking to Instagram Tyrese posted an emotional tribute Walker calling his late co-star the "worlds bestfriend" (sic).

"For selfish reasons we all wanted you to stay, another laugh, another take, another talk, another moment..... I guess you can't get all you ask for in life.... But our hearts are FULL from all the moments we DID have, 13 years of laughter and grace, humility and love..... "Never did I take my access for granted.... Continue praying for his #Family, his daughter #Meadow, you are the WORLDS best friend that's why we're all feeling it... #RIHAW Rest In Heaven Angel Walker,"

Ludacris also posted an image from the memorial which showed a smiling picture of the star, with the message "Always in our hearts...."
