She told the Daily Star that in one incident, a Japanese man approached her in the street and started to point at his phone and speak about James Bond and MI5. 

Deborah revealed: 'I said, "Are you looking for the MI5 building?" He went, "Yeah, yeah, James Bond, 007". Now, of all the people to come up to in the street, it’s me.

So there’s all these little things which always make it feel as though he’s around me.'

In another instance, Deborah recalled how she saw the famous 007 number on the side of a boat and took it as another sign from her father.  

She said: 'I was walking along the beach and there was this big Russian boat and when it moved the colours changed and the side said 007...

'And then the friend that I was with her first day back in work - she lives in Sweden - she said, "the only picture in this entire office was of your father".'

They paid tribute to his campaign work, saying he considered the time with UNICEF to be his 'greatest achievement'.

'The love with which he has surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words alone.'

He was survived by Deborah, his other children Geoffrey and Cristian and his wife Kristina Tholstrup.

Speaking about the beloved actor's biggest achievements, they reveal that he found his charity work for UNICEF to be his life's most rewarding word. 

'We know our own love and admiration will be magnified many 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 statement adds. 

'The affection our father felt whenever he walked on to a stage or in front of a camera buoyed him hugely and kept him busy working into his 90th year, through to his latest appearance in November 2016 on stage at London's Royal Festival Hall.

'The capacity crowd cheered him on and off stage, shaking the very foundations of the building just a short distance from where he was born.

'Thank you Pops for being you, and before being so very special to so many people.'
