"Sean Connery is in the house," the official Twitter handle of US Open posted soon after they spotted the actor, who played James Bond in the first five Bond films from 1962 to 1967 and later in 1971's Diamonds Are Forever. Twitter was overjoyed by the organisers' quick thinking as soon as they spotted Sir Sean in the crowd. Most of the fans were happy to see the 87-year-old actor in good health. "Looking good Sean," wrote one Twitter user while another added: "I guess retirement has suited him just fine, proper legend." There was one who tried to imitate (in writing) Sir Sean's accent: "Let's watch shum tennish."
