The dreadfully sad news that Sir Roger Moore has died at the age of 89 following a brief battle with cancer is still keenly felt among fans.

But a truly wonderful anecdote about the much-loved Bond actor is reminding us what a fantastic man he was off-screen as well as on.

Writer Marc Haynes’ tale has gone gangbusters on Twitter – since it was posted by user @MrKenShabby, it’s been re-tweeted 29,000 times.

It tells the story of a young chap meeting Sir Roger – just Roger back in 1983 – and asking for an autograph.

Haynes tells it best…

Lovely stuff.
