Tom Hanks was reportedly seen doing a happy dance on the tarmac in LA after returning from his coronavirus isolation in Australia.

Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson have arrived back home in Los Angeles after they tested positive for coronavirus and spent weeks in isolation in Australia.

The actor was seen stretching down to touch the tarmac then doing a celebration dance before entering a terminal after he and Wilson touched down in Los Angeles by private jet, according to the New York Post.

The couple was then photographed driving together, with Hanks behind the wheel of a Range Rover, through LA on their way to their home.

Hanks and Wilson, both 63, were on the Gold Coast in Australia for the pre-production of Baz Lurhmann’s Elvis Presley biopic when they revealed earlier this month they had tested positive for the virus.

They were briefly hospitalised before being released into isolation at an undisclosed Australian residence.

Hanks tweeted this week that they were both feeling better before jetting back home.

The Oscar winner shared multiple updates on Twitter during the ordeal to remind his followers of the importance of self-quarantine to stem the pandemic.

“Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no?” Hanks wrote.

He added, “Going to take a while, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts … this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out.”
