Tom Hardy fans were able to get up close to the actor’s newly unveiled waxwork at Madame Tussauds.

The actor has been immortalised in wax at the London attraction and his figure comes complete with a mechanism that mimics a beating heart and also includes a soft, warm torso.

Hardy’s waxwork, which is positioned sitting on a sofa, sports a beard and is clad in a navy waistcoat and trousers with a white shirt.

The 40-year-old, who was nominated for a supporting actor Oscar in 2016 for The Revenant, is the latest celebrity addition at Madame Tussauds.

Hardy fans posed and kissed the life-sized waxwork following its unveiling, with some listening to the figure’s heartbeat using a stethoscope.
