Nation can help heal Beckham’s foot, says Uri
Spoonbending psychic Uri Geller today called on the nation to unleash its healing powers to mend David Beckham’s crocked left foot.
Geller told viewers to touch their TV screens and concentrate on mending the star’s broken bone when he appeared on GMTV.
He aimed to use the collective will to hurry the healing process and ensure the England captain was fit for the team’s first World Cup game on June 2.
Urging viewers to trigger their powers, he said: “I know it sounds light-hearted, but it is actually very serious.
“Send him healing energies, visualise the bone knitting together, unleash your healing powers. Send the energy to that foot.”
The psychic, who said the England star was watching the programme, said after calling on the nation to concentrate that he could feel a tremendous surge of energy.
“I definitely believe in the power of healing, the power of prayer and the power of positive thinking. I can feel the energy,” said Geller, who became renowned as a psychic entertainer in the 1970s through his technique of bending spoons by concentrating and merely rubbing them.
The psychic renewed his wedding vows a year ago, with pal pop superstar Michael Jackson as best man.
Today’s effort was not his first attempt to influence football matters.
In 1996, he claimed he was to blame for Scotland star Gary McAllister missing a vital penalty against England in the European Championships.
The ball was seen to move just before the Scot struck the shot, which was deflected over the bar by England goalkeeper David Seaman.
Beckham was battling back against injury even before Geller’s efforts, as hopes rose that he could return to action in time for the World Cup.
The inspirational midfielder was at Manchester United’s training ground receiving treatment yesterday, just hours after he suffered a stress fracture in a bone in his left foot in a crunching two-footed tackle by an Argentinian defender.
Fears that he will be out of the World Cup in June receded as United and an array of experts said they thought he could be back in six weeks – 10 days before England’s first match against Sweden on June 2.
The Prime Minister led national concern after Beckham’s injury during the European Champions League victory over Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna last night, which was initially thought likely to keep him out for up to eight weeks.
