Sean Connery’s last photo was of the James Bond icon smiling...

In the last photo of the late star Sir Sean Connery, the James Bond actor posed with his son on his 89th birthday.

On Saturday, the legendary film star’s family announced that he was “ill for some time” before he died peacefully in his sleep in the Bahamas, surrounded by loved ones.

Now, his last poignant photo has surfaced when the Scottish star posed alongside his son Jason and partner Fiona Upton.

In the healthy family photo taken last August, the 007 legend playfully held his finger in the air as he looked sideways.

Sir Sean sat between his beloved son and partner Fiona, looking happy as he celebrated another milestone year with a selection of his loved ones.

His proud son Jason paid tribute to his film star father on Saturday when he told the BBC that his death was a “sad loss for people around the world”.

“We are all working to understand this big event because it only happened recently, although my father has not been well for a while,” said Jason.

A statement by Sir Sean’s publicist stated: “His wife Micheline and two sons Jason and Stephane have confirmed that he died peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by his family.
