Idris Elba has posted a cryptic tweet, fuelling speculation he could be the next James Bond.

After old rumors that actor Idris Elba will be the next James Bond gained new life earlier this week, the man himself has responded on social media to apparently dismiss them.

Elba has always been rumoured to be in the running to take over the role of 007.

Elba, 45, is best known for his work on the television dramas Luther and The Wire, as well as in the films Molly's Game, The Jungle Book, Thor, Pacific Rim, Zootopia and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

The story was swiftly followed up by news outlets around the world, despite Fuqua's agent insisting that the conversation with Broccoli about the future of the Bond franchise never took place and is all "made-up stuff".
