Sean Connery's cause of death has finally been revealed. According to his death certificate obtained by TMZ, the "James Bond" star died in his sleep from respiratory failure as a result of pneumonia, old age, and atrial fibrillation, which is an irregular, often rapid heartbeat that commonly causes poor blood flow.

Connery passed away on Oct. 31 at his home in The Bahamas at age 90. He was surrounded by family members, his widow Micheline Roquebrune said at the time of his death.

"I was with him all the time and he just slipped away," she said.

Roquebrune also revealed that Connery had been suffering from dementia in his final years.

"He had dementia and it took its toll on him. He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss," she continued. "It was no life for him. He was not able to express himself latterly."

News of Connery's death sent the world into mourning. Dozens of prominent figures have come forth with tributes and fond memories of the actor. Among them was Harrison Ford, who appeared alongside Connery in 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." In the film, Connery played Ford's father — an experience that Ford will forever cherish.

"He was my father … not in life … but in 'Indy 3,'" Ford previously said in a statement to Variety. "You don't know pleasure until someone pays you to take Sean Connery for a ride in the side car of a Russian motorcycle bouncing along a bumpy, twisty mountain trail and getting to watch him squirm," he continued. "God, we had fun — if he's in heaven, I hope they have golf courses. Rest in peace, dear friend."

President Donald Trump also remembered Connery on social media.

"Sean was a great actor and an even greater man," he tweeted upon news of the star's death. "Sincere condolences to his family!"
