Researchers from the CIA claimed the spoonbender could see hidden objects such as a drawing behind a wall.

The American spooks later described his paranormal powers as “convincing”.

The revelations came in a cache of 13million documents released yesterday

Declassified paperwork reveals how Mr Geller was tested after he was seated in a sealed room.

In one experiment, researchers sketched a firecracker on a piece of paper and taped it to a wall outside the TV magician’s room.

US intelligence agency documents revealed: “His almost immediate response was that he saw a ‘cylinder with noise coming out of it’.

“His drawing to correspond with it was a drum, along with a number of cylindrical-looking objects.”

In a second test, researchers sketched a bunch of grapes. A CIA document read: “He said that he was quite sure that he had the picture. His drawing was indeed a bunch of grapes.”

The researchers concluded Uri “demonstrated his paranormal perceptual ability in a convincing and unambiguous manner”.

In 2013, Mr Geller lifted the lid on his secret past as a spy in a BBC Two documentary.

He claimed he worked for both the CIA and Israel’s Mossad agency during the Cold War.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
