He has been honoured with an Oscar and British knighthood - and now Sean Connery can count a bronze sculpture in Estonia's capital among his tributes.

The bust of Scotland's most famous actor was unveiled on Thursday by British Ambassador Peter Carter outside Tallinn's Scottish Club, whose members include Estonians enamoured with Scotland and a handful of expatriate Scots.

The president of the Scottish Club, which started as a whisky sampling society in the early 1990s, says it got the idea of honouring "Scots who have made a difference" a few years back.

It already has a bust of 18th century Scottish poet Robert Burns.
