The celebrity spoon-bender has taken credit for helping to free the stricken cargo ship in the Middle-East.
After a tremendous co-operative effort involving skilled salvage crews, dredgers and a small fleet of tug boats, the world breathed a sigh of relief when the gargantuan cargo ship Ever Given was finally moved after being wedged in the Suez Canal for the better part of a week.
According to Uri Geller however, it was the 'mind power' of his fans that helped move the ship.
Ever the opportunist, the world-famous Israeli had urged his fans around the world to use their collective brain power to move the stricken vessel at 11:11am on Saturday.
"This was a mammoth task but with your mind-power and self belief we all together freed the ship!" he said. "Your sheer positive energy also helped the ground crew efforts well done to them too!"
Of course the ship did not move on the date and time of Geller's scheduled event, however that doesn't seem to have stopped him from claiming that he had contributed to the effort.
He has done something similar before, such as in December 2019 when he claimed that he had 'energised' UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to help him win the election.
Suffice to say, it seems unlikely that he had any impact whatsoever in either case.
