Pierce Brosnan has paid tribute to fellow James Bond actor Sir Sean Connery following his death this weekend.
The acting legend, who originated the role of 007 in film in 1962, passed away at the age of 90 in the Bahamas having been unwell for some time.
Brosnan - Bond from 1995 to 2002 - posted a black and white picture of Connery on Instagram alongside the message: "Sir Sean Connery, you were my greatest James Bond as a boy, and as a man who became James Bond himself.
"You cast a long shadow of cinematic splendor that will live on forever. You led the way for us all who followed in your iconic foot steps.
"Each man in his turn looked to you with reverence and admiration as we forged ahead with our own interpretations of the role.
"You were mighty in every way, as an actor and as a man, and will remain so till the end of time. You were loved by the world, and will be missed. God bless, rest now, be at peace."
