Geller showed how to read minds using the apple of his eye

Finally, the CIA has seen fit to back up my incontrovertible expert conclusion - namely that Uri Geller really is a mind reader.

It ought to be ashamed of itself, denying the truth for more than 40 years. Why, I could tell he was paranormal or magic and certainly very spooky within minutes of meeting him.

It was two years ago almost to the day when I visited his then home, bombastically modelled on the White House and situated on a particularly picturesque bend of the Thames. Geller, who is 70, has since moved back to his native Israel with his wife, but back then I found him to be both eerily composed and fabulously bonkers - with a keen sense of the absurd.
