Daniel Craig says he cried the first time he heard Adele's new Bond theme song Skyfall.

Adele penned the anthemic track for Craig's third outing as James Bond, and the song has made an impact on charts around the world since its release earlier this month.

The song was kept under wraps for months before Bond bosses confirmed Adele would sing the theme, and Craig says he was overcome with emotion when the song was finally unveiled to him.

"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," he tells Yahoo.

"It just got better and better because it fitted the movie. In fact the more of the movie we made, the more it fitted it."
