The Israel-born actor told followers she had taken inspiration of a viral video from Italy which saw a man play Imagine on his trumpet while quarantined neighbours joined in.

The outbreak of the virus has seen the release dates of many films delayed or cancelled, include those of the next James Bond film No Time To Die, Fast and Furious 9 and A Quiet Place Part II.

However, Gadot’s superhero sequel Wonder Woman 1984 has thus far kept its first release date of 5 June.
