  • Usain Bolt linked to 'Illuminati' in ridiculous conspiracy theories

    Usain Bolt mania continues to grip the international media landscape with countless stories about the Jamaican sprint sensation since he created history at the Rio Olympics.

    From his commercial to personal affairs, journalists have been working overtime to report on Bolt who completed an unprecedented 'triple-triple' - winning the 100m, 200m and 4 x 100m in three consecutive Olympics - at the just-concluded Rio Games.

    The latest media reports link the track star to the "Illuminati" - the name given to so-called secret groups and organizations that allegedly control the world from behind the scenes.

    The Daily Mail is among several media houses to report that Bolt has sent conspiracy theorists into a spin with his physical signs and even the lanes that have been assigned to him. 

    Bolt is well known for making physical signs including his trademark "To Di Worl" gesture. But some of the other gestures have reportedly prompted speculation by the theorists that Bolt is part of a secret group. 

    Among the signs conspiracy theorists find suspicious, reported Vanity Fair, are the "all seeing eye" when Bolt covers one eye with a hand; the "symbol of silence", when the sprinter puts his fingers over his lips, allegedly a masonic gesture to indicate that one is being quiet about what's going on; and his "Okay" hands while celebrating his 'three-peat', which is reportedly an Illuminati sign showing three sixes.

    Other ridiculous theories include the fact that Bolt has won three Olympic titles from lane 6 - another link made to the three sixes.

  • Jamaican musician imprisoned on drug conviction in Barbados

    A Jamaican musician has been slapped with an 18-month prison sentence in Barbados for attempting to smuggle marijuana into the country.

    Dervent Anthony Bartlett, 38, reportedly pleaded guilty to charges of possession, trafficking, intent to supply and importation in a magistrate’s court in Barbados last week.

    He was reportedly caught attempting to smuggle 1.5 kilogrammes of marijuana into the Caribbean territory.

    Reports were that Bartlett went through the Grantley Adams International Airport last Tuesday, where his luggage was searched by Customs officials, but no drug was found during the search.

    However, suspicious personnel handed the Jamaican over to the police, who interviewed him before taking him to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where an x-ray was conducted.

    The result confirmed that Bartlett had 102 packages inside his intestines.

    In court, he was convicted for all the offences he was charged with, and sentenced to 18 months on the count of trafficking, but was reprimanded and discharged on the counts of possession, intent to supply and importation.
