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…
