Sir Sean Connery has died aged 90.
The multi-award-winning Scots actor was best known for defining James Bond, and was the first to bring the role to the big screen.
He appeared in seven of the spy movies, and was knighted by the Queen at Holyrood Palace in 2000.
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.
Sean Connery was also in Malta in 2002 to film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which was partly shot in Gozo.
