Daniel Craig leads James Bond star tributes to Roger Moore

British actor Roger Moore, who won worldwide fame playing fictional secret agent James Bond, died of cancer on Tuesday aged 89, his family said.

The veteran actor, who played spy James Bond seven times, died in Switzerland following a "short but courageous battle with cancer", it was announced on Tuesday.

His 12 years as action man 007, the fictitious spy with a voracious appetite for danger and sex, made Moore a millionaire and a heartthrob the world over, though in reality he was a shy, private man who found some of Bond's escapades embarrassing.

The Scottish actor, 86, said in a statement: "I was very sad to hear of Roger's passing, we had an unusually long relationship by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter". The precise type of cancer that the James Bond actor suffered from is unknown at this time, although he was treated for prostate cancer in 1993 and has suffered from several others, including skin cancer.

Born October 14th, 1927, Sir Roger Moore died at the age of 89 on May 23rd, 2017 after giving movie-goers many hours of blockbusting entertainment, and in the real world the helping hand so needed by millions in the world. "Thoughts and prayers are with his family". How else do you explain a man who was a hypochondriac and hated heights, guns or explosions still be Bond, James Bond?

Once Kim dropped his three birdies putts, he was unrelenting, especially when he made par saves on six of the back-nine holes. Just over four years ago, Kim came to the United States to play the final version of the tour's qualifying school.

"To me, the Bond situations are so ridiculous, so outrageous".

Brosnan described Sir Roger as "a magnificent Bond" and "a big part of my life" in a post on Facebook. Unlike Connery, Moore even suggested three replacements - two of whom Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan even ended up filling his shoes - and wanted to play a Bond villain.

In November 2012 Sir Roger was presented with the first-ever UNICEF UK Lifetime Achievement Award which then became the Roger Moore Lifetime Achievement Award in celebration of his dedication to UNICEF, both as a generous fundraiser and a global advocate for children's rights. "The auto that turned into a sub in The Spy Who Loved Me blew my mind as a kid". "He will be missed too by UNICEF" - Mia Farrow on Twitter. And a lovely, funny, warm person to boot.

This fugly little buggy with what appears to be a hammock for the roof may not be much to look at - or drive - it seems to have some kind of emotional bond with Bond.

The actor, author and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador passed following a brief battle with cancer.
