A source told the publication that Tom has ‘loved’ his time in Britain and that setting up a dartboard was the ‘next natural step as he turns himself into an honorary Englishman’.

The source added: ‘He knows darts is a staple in English pubs and he was excited to go.’

MailOnline has reached out to representatives for Tom Cruise for comment.

Tom has spent much of the past year in the UK filming the seventh installment of the Mission Impossible franchise and has spent the past few months shooting action packed scenes in the Yorkshire Moors.

During his downtime, the fencer was also seen at several major events, including Wimbledon and the Silverstone Grand Prix.

He was also seen mingling with David Beckham at Wembley Stadium for the Euro 2020 final.

Last month, the filming of Mission: Impossible 7 was reportedly interrupted again due to a positive Covid test with crew members speculating it could be Cruise.

Despite there being ‘no evidence’ to back up the futile talk, people are rumored to be gossiping it could be Tom, due to his alleged absence from the set.

A source told The Sun: “Filming of Mission Impossible 7 has been suspended again due to the coronavirus. And this time, those working on the production have said they think Tom could be the possible cause of the delay.

“Everyone on the set was told that the recordings were being stopped again because of a positive test. And Tom hasn’t been on set once since then.

“Now people are speculating that he could have come into contact with the person who tested positive. And in some cases people even gossip and say it could be him.’

At the time, MailOnline contacted Mission Impossible film representatives for comment.

It is not known whether Tom received the Covid vaccine or not, although although it has been proven to drastically reduce the risk of coronavirus, none of the shots approved in Britain are 100 per cent effective.

It means that some vaccinated people inevitably become infected without having any symptoms, leaving them unaware that they are infected and contagious – unless they are tested.
