Former James Bond star Sir Sean Connery has died aged 90. 

The Edinburgh-born actor passed away in his sleep at his home in the Bahamas.

Sir Sean played the fictional spy James Bond between 1962–1971 and again in 1983, arguably defining the role, and starred in a number of Hollywood blockbusters including The Hunt for Red October, Entrapment, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. 

He was awarded an Oscar in 1988 for his part playing an Irish policeman in The Untouchables. 

A former Edinburgh milkman, he was knighted at Holyrood Palace in 2000 and received the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006, when he confirmed his retirement from acting.
