Tom Hanks was awarded honourary Greek citizenship on Friday, the state Athens News Agency said, adding an official touch to a long love affair with the country.

A document that confirmed the distinction was signed by Greek president Prokopis Pavlopoulos, ANA said.

The 63-year-old actor and film-maker's wife, producer Rita Wilson, is also of Greek origin on her mother's side.

There is considerable pride in Greece that Hanks, one of Hollywood's most bankable stars, has a summer house on the picturesque island of Antiparos and visits every year.

Hanks has said that he feels "110 percent Greek...I'm more Greek than a  Greek is" by being married to Wilson, producer of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
