The couple kept their fans updated on their activities while in quarantine and isolation, with one of those updates seeing Rita Wilson perform one of her songs, and also rapping to "Hip Hop Hooray."

It showed how much Wilson missed singing to the public, and soon after her recovery, she was filmed by her son, Truman Hanks, 24, singing the US National Anthem from their home in LA.

The anthem preceded the broadcast of NASCAR's virtual race, the third that has been held since the coronavirus outbreak led to a suspension of NASCAR's races in March.

NASCAR's drivers compete against each other by using race simulators, much like those in arcade racing games. The virtual races are televised live on FOX Sports and have generated about a million viewers so far.
