While it is understood he had been unwell for some time; Sir Sean Connery, who was best known for his portrayal of James Bond, died overnight in his sleep at the age of 90.

His acting career spanned decades and his many awards included an Oscar, two Bafta awards and three Golden Globes.

He was largely regarded as being the best actor to have played 007 in the long-running franchise, often being named as such in polls.

His Oscar came in 1988, when he was named best supporting actor for his role as an Irish cop in The Untouchables.

He leaves behind him a body of work that any actor would be proud of and, not least, a vacancy for the title “Greatest Living Scot”.
