Will Smith's Australian Sports Tour

He's known for his onscreen antics but superstar actor Will Smith has traded the screen for the sporting field in Australia.

After watching Australian Nick Kyrgios in his third round win over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the Australian Open, Smith declared himself to be hooked on tennis.

The star travelled to Australia for his first ever Grand Slam and couldn't contain his excitement during the match.

He then swapped his seats for a set of wheels, playing a round with Paralympic tennis star Dylan Alcott.

The gold medalist gave him a lesson in wheelchair tennis and to Alcott's surprise Smith had some skills.

The pair shared their new doubles partnership in a video posted online, we hope to be seeing them on court together at the 2019 Australian Open.

The Hollywood heavyweight didn't stop there, dropping into the MCG to watch his first ever game of cricket.

Smith flipped the coin for the Melbourne Stars clash against the Sydney Thunder, as part of the Big Bash League.

He told Channel Ten that watching a game of cricket had always been on his bucket list.

Thunder batsman Usman Khawaja couldn't contain his excitement, asking Smith to do the iconic Jazzy Jeff handshake, made famous in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

We may be seeing him later in the year after joining the list of celebrities to become honorary AFL member, perhaps at his first AFL Grand Final?
