  • Roger Moore’s son is a dead ringer for his father in Bond costume

    It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).

  • Samsung Electronics delays South Korea re-start of Note 7 sales by three days

  • Klopp sidesteps Sakho Liverpool storm after Hull win

    Jurgen Klopp would not allow controversial comments from defender Mamadou Sakho to take the gloss off a "brilliant" first-half performance from his Liverpool side as they beat Hull City 5-1 at Anfield. Sakho -- who was sent home from Liverpool's pre-season tour of the United States for disciplinary reasons -- is yet to play for the Reds this season and rejected the chance to move on loan before the transfer window closed. Liverpool manager Klopp said earlier this month that the France international did not need to regain his trust but that Sakho needed to build up his fitness after not playing since April following a suspension for a failed drugs tests -- subsequently overturned by UEFA -- and an injury sustained in pre-season.
