A koala who became an internet sensation when images of him soothing his burnt paws in medicine were shared online has been released back into the wild.

Jeremy was injured in bushfires in Australia's Adelaide Hills earlier this month and has since been receiving treatment at the Australian Marine Wildlife Research and Rescue Organisation (AMWRRO).

Staff tended to the young koala's every need and watched him become something of a celebrity when the picture of him lying on his front with all four paws soaking in a medical solution went viral.
