Sir Sean Connery’s cause of death has been confirmed almost a month after it was announced that he had died at the age of 90.

The James Bond actor died at his home in the Bahamas on Halloween.

The star died in his sleep, with the factors on his death certificate given as pneumonia, respiratory failure, old age and atrial fibrillation – an irregular heart beat.
