After testing positive for the coronavirus and spending two weeks in quarantine in Australia, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have returned home to the US.

The couple - who were in Australia to film the Elvis Presley biopic, in which Tom is set to play Presley's manager - flew back to Los Angeles via private jet over the weekend.

According to reports, the 63-year-old actor was spotted doing a celebratory dance at the airport after landing.

Just hours after arriving home, Tom took to social media to thank everyone in Australia who cared for the couple.

He wrote: "Hey, Folks... We're home now and, like the rest of America, we carry on with sheltering in place and social distancing.

"Many, many thanks to everyone in Australia who looked after us. Their care and guidance made possible our return to the USA.

"And many thanks to all of you who reached out with well wishes. Rita and I so appreciate it. Hanx."

We're so glad to see them on the mend!
