The passing of Sir Roger Moore sent ripples around the world's media, and it is also perhaps the first time that all surviving James Bond actors have publicly spoken within a 24 hour period. 

In a statement issued to the press, Sir Sean Connery said: "I was very sad to hear of Roger’s passing we had an unusually long relationship by Hollywood standards, that was filled with jokes and laughter, I will miss him." George Lazenby said: "I liked Roger, he was a genuine fellow, a really good guy."

Other fellow 007s turned to social media to pass on their condolences, along with some of Sir Roger's co-stars and colleagues through the years. EON Productions issued a joint statement with MGM.
