There were many famous faces in the stands at the US Open Final yesterday, including former James Bond star Sean Connery.

The Scottish actor previously vowed in 2011 that he would not be making any more public appearances.

The award-winning star broke his own rules as he stepped out to New York's Arthur Ashe Stadium to watch Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer take on each other at the final of the US Open.

A known tennis fan, the 85-year-old was seen without his wife Micheline Roquebrune, but was certainly in good company.

The former 007 sat amongst actor Bradley Cooper, VOGUE editor Anna Wintour and football ace David Beckham, while Hugh Jackman, Leonardo DiCaprio and Adrien Brody sat elsewhere in the crowd.

Dad-of-one Sean looked to be in good health as he attended the tennis event, kitted out in a fedora, navy blazer and beige chinos.
