1. Moore Plays Real-Life Bond, Walks From Car Crash

    That’s exactly the headline that Yahoo News! have used.

    Actor Roger Moore did on Saturday in real life what he had done so often when playing his most famous character, British secret service agent James Bond — he walked away unperturbed from a car crash.

    Moore, aged 73, and his Swedish ‘partner’ Christina Tholstrup were being driven from Gothenburg airport in southwestern Sweden to a television studio when another car lost control and swerved into theirs.

    Both Moore and his partner avoided serious injury thanks to air-bags (and no these weren’t special Q-Branch ones). Despite chest pains Moore refused to see a doctor and went on to appear, two hours later, on Swedish TV.
