Idris Elba believes the world isn't ready for the first black James Bond.

The London-born actor has been heavily linked to the coveted role but although he is interested in playing 007 he doesn't think cinema goers around the world want to see a black man play the character.

Idris also rejected claims that people would be more accommodating to the change because of recent historical moments such as Barack Obama becoming America's first black president.

However Idris is adamant he has not had any official conversation about taking on the role after Craig makes his final appearance in 'Bond 25', but he would definitely consider it if he did get an offer.
