A poignant last photo of James Bond legend Sir Sean Connery, who has died in his sleep at the age of 90, showed him posing with his son Jason on his 89th birthday.

The photo showed the Oscar-winning actor giving a half-smile and raising his finger in the air as he sat between his son and his son’s partner Fiona Upton in August last year.

Tributes have been pouring in for the Oscar-winning actor who passed away in the Bahamas and leaves behind his wife Micheline and sons Jason and Stefan.

A statement from Sir Sean’s publicist said: ‘His wife Micheline and his two sons, Jason and Stephane, have confirmed that he died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family.

‘There will be a private ceremony followed by a memorial yet to be planned once the virus has ended.’

Jason told the BBC: ‘We are all working at understanding this huge event as it only happened so recently, even though my dad has been unwell for some time.

‘A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor.’

Sir Sean, whose movie career spans five decades, is best known for being the first to portray the role of British fictional spy 007 who he played between 1962–1971.

He was today hailed as ‘the world’s greatest Scot and last of the real Hollywood stars’ as the acting community and beyond rallied to remember him.

Through the official James Bond Twitter page, the incumbent 007 Craig said: ‘Sir Sean Connery will be remembered as Bond and so much more. He defined an era and a style. The wit and charm he portrayed on screen could be measured in mega watts; he helped create the modern blockbuster.

‘He will continue to influence actors and film-makers alike for years to come. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones. Wherever he is, I hope there is a golf course.’
