Actor Sir Roger Moore, best known for playing James Bond, has died aged 89, his family has announced.

He played the famous spy in seven Bond films including Live and Let Die and A View to a Kill.

Sir Roger's family confirmed the news on Twitter, saying he had died after "a short but brave battle with cancer".

The statement, from his children, read: "Thank you Pops for being you, and being so very special to so many people."
"With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated," they said in a Twitter post.

The actor took the character of James Bond in a more humorous direction than his predecessor Sean Connery.

Sir Roger is survived by his three children and wife Kristina Tholstrup

Sir Roger's Bond was calm and suave - a smooth operator who could seemingly get himself out of a tricky situation with ease.

The veteran star, who died in Switzerland, will have a private funeral in Monaco in accordance with his wishes, his children said.

My first Bond movie I saw in the theatre was Live and Let Die, released in 1973. With Jane Seymour as the Bond girl, and a Paul McCartney theme song, how could you possibly go wrong? Up until Raiders of the Lost Ark, it was the most outstandingly great action movie I'd ever seen.

Roger Moore for me is my favorite Bond, the snobbish British gentleman. I later worked my way backward to appreciate Sean Connery in the role as well, more rugged and athletic, but for me Moore was the most effective Bond.
I read somewhere that Ian Fleming liked Moore best in the role as well, that he came closest to the character Fleming portrayed in his novels.

I also see (after the false start of Timothy Dalton replacing Moore for a few movies) the selection of Pierce Brosnan for the role as a return to the template established by Roger Moore.

Sorry to see him go. At least he left us a lot of great movies as his legacy.

My least favorite Bond but I still enjoyed a few of his outings like The spy who loved me. Class act and he will be missed
