"I told my granddad I'd just seen James Bond and asked if we could go over so I could get his autograph", he explained in a post on Facebook this week. "We are all devastated", the statement said.

Moore shot to fame as the smooth-talking adventurer Simon Templar in British television show The Saint in the 1960s, and also starred alongside Tony Curtis in The Persuaders in the 1970s.
