Speaking to Yahoo!, the star relived the moment that the song was played to him, saying: "I cried. From the opening bars I knew immediately, then the voice kicked in and it was exactly what I'd wanted from the beginning.

Meanwhile producer Barbara Broccoli has confessed that the team behind the Bond franchise would "love" to get Mendes to direct more of the movies.
She told Digital Spy: "We'd love to have him back. He's been a terrific director."

The movie had it's world premiere earlier this week.
