Sir Roger Moore, the English gentleman responsible for the devastatingly handsome third incarnation of the James Bond movie series, has just passed away at the age of 89.

His children, Deborah, Geoffrey, and Christian, announced his death on Twitter earlier this morning.

“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that our loving father, Sir Roger Moore, has passed away today in Switzerland after a short, but brave battle with cancer. The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.”

“We know our own love and admiration will be magnified man times over, across the world, by people who knew him for his films, his television shows, and his passionate work for UNICEF which he considered to be his greatest achievement.”

The London-born actor starred in seven Bond films over the course of a decade, such as The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, The Man With The Golden Gun, and Live and Let Die. His work for UNICEF started after he passed on the role of 007 to Timothy Dalton in the 80s. After he was appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1991, his philanthropy earned him his royal knighthood.

His family says that he will soon be buried in Monaco in accordance with his last wishes.
