Tom Hanks revives Forrest Gump character in monologue dedicated to Mo Farah

The legendary film star that is Tom Hanks graced the red couch on The Graham Norton Show last night and charmed the pants of the nation with his winning smile and gregarious demeanour.

Tom regaled the star studded couch of runner Mo Farah, actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gemma Arterton with anecdotes of his wife enjoying watching his toned tush in Forrest Gump as well as - the highlight of the show – re-enacting a lil Forrest Gump monologue and dedicating it to the real runner of the group: Mo Farah.

Ah Tom! You are our hero!

Watch Tom Hanks, just be, well – Tom Hanks!
