Former Bond star Roger Moore has expressed his sympathy for Daniel Craig after the actor was injured while filming new 007 movie Spectre.

Craig sprained his knee while shooting a fight scene at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England for the next James Bond film, and Moore admits he empathises with the actor's plight.

The veteran star also jokingly offered to step in and take his place, writing in a post on Twitter.com, "Sorry to hear Daniel Craig has sprained his knee on set Spectre. Being 007 is not without its hazards. I'm available to step in if needed."

However, after hearing Craig has been cleared to carry on filming, he added, "Ahhh good news: Daniel will be back on set tomorrow. I'm hanging my safari suit back in the wardrobe."
