Aussies chide Tom Hanks over his quarantine Vegemite diet

Quarantined US actor Tom Hanks has prompted a wave of gentle ribbing from his Australian hosts concerned about his fervid use of their beloved Vegemite spread. Hanks has been in hospital isolation with his wife Rita Wilson since they tested positive for coronavirus last week. On Sunday he posted a photo showing two pieces of toast smothered in Vegemite, a salty and pungent paste made from yeast extract.
