The actor and humanitarian died in Switzerland, following a short illness with cancer. His family posted this statement on the actor’s official Twitter account at 14:13pm, GMT.

Moore was best known for his performances as Ian Fleming’s James Bond, assuming the role from Sean Connery. Starring as the famed secret agent in 7 films, over the course of 14 years, in films including A View To A Kill and Live and Let Die. As the longest serving 007 in history, the British actor’s performances are noted for being considerably more humourful – playing on Bond’s playboy-ish tendencies, with a memorable wit and penchant for one-liners. He had previously carved a lengthy career in television between 1958 and 1972 – starring in shows such as The Persuaders, and as Simon Templar in The Saint.

Following his Bond stint, Moore later became a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1991. With his services to charity formally acknowledged by HM The Queen in 2003, with a KBE.

He is survived by his three children, Deborah, Geoffrey and Christian.
