Tom Hardy catches 'motorcycle thief' after chase in London

The actor is known for his roles in action films such as Mad Max.

ACTOR TOM HARDY helped catch a man who had allegedly stolen a motorbike in London, police have said.

A Richmond Police spokesperson confirmed the incident took place on Sunday, telling BBC News two males on a stolen motorcycle drove through a red light and crashed into another vehicle.

“The males ran off and one was detained by Tom Hardy. Both suspects were initially taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries,” they said in a statement.

Witness Arun Pullen told the Sun it was like Hardy “switched to superhero mode in an action movie”.

“He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious. I asked Tom what happened and he told me he chased him through my back garden and caught him around the block.”
