Actor Sir Roger Moore, best known for playing James Bond, has died aged 89, his family has announced.

The statement, from his children, read: "Thank you Pops for being you, and being so very special to so many people."
"With the heaviest of hearts, we must share the awful news that our father, Sir Roger Moore, passed away today. We are all devastated," they said in a Twitter post.
Mr. Moore was the oldest Bond ever hired for films in the official series 
Moore was dedicated to his work for UNICEF after Audrey Hepburn introduced him to the charity. He became a Goodwill Ambassador in 1991 and since then has become known as much for his work for children’s rights as his acting.
“The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified with words alone,” said his family’s statement Tuesday. “We know our own love and admiration will be magnified many times over, across the world, by people who knew him for his films, his television shows and his passionate work for UNICEF.”
Moore is survived by his wife Kristina Tholstrup and three children.
A private funeral will be held in Monaco.
