Conspiracy theorists are claiming nine-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt is a secret member of the Illuminati.

Videos uploaded to YouTube in the past few days claim Bolt, the greatest track athlete who ever lived, demonstrated hand symbols during the Rio Games which reveal his connections to the mythical group, often accused of secretly running the world.

They include a hand gesture that apparently stands for '666', believed by some to be the 'number of the beast'. It looks a lot like the hand symbol many of us think means 'okay'.

There's also the 'symbol of silence', perhaps better known as 'shushing'.

He also likes to make a circle with his fingers and put them over his eye - symbolising the "all-seeing eye", that can also be seen on US currency.

All the gestures are synonymous with the Freemasons according to the videos, including one uploaded by 'The Vigilant Christian'.

"The guy's name is Bolt. OK? Lightning bolt. And Jesus said that he saw Satan fall to earth 'like lightning'. The subliminal messaging is too overwhelming to believe this is all coincidence."

The Jamaican sprinter also ran in lane six. You know, like 666.

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is even dragged into the mess - the Vigilant Christian says she's also a member of the Illuminati, and the controversial photoshopped image of her riding on Bolt's back is meant to incite a race war.

Other members of the Illumaniti, according to the conspiracy theorist, are basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal, the late David Bowie, actress Lindsay Lohan and "occult queen" Lady Gaga.

"The world is a stage and more of it orchestrated than you can imagine."
