US College star JJ Weaver has sent the internet into a frenzy after revealing, what some already knew, that he has six fingers on his right hand.

Weaver has kept his six finger quiet since starting at the Kentucky Wildcats for his first two seasons.

But, ahead of his game on the weekend, a photo of Weaver circulated on the internet with the Kentucky star showcasing his six fingers.

The photo put to bed some social media rumblings about an optical illusion surrounding his gloves.

Kentucky had a special glove made for Weaver so he felt comfortable.

Weaver also featured in a Game Day feature, which he told people that it was 'Okay to be different' after confirming he had Polydactyly.

But the photo of Weaver has done the rounds over the weekend.

While Kentucky fans learned of his six-fingers earlier in the season, the photo sent the internet wild.

The story behind his Polydactyly and the remarkable photo sparked an outpouring of support and praise for Weaver.

The best reply came from former New York Yankees pitcher Jim Abbott.

Abbott was born without a right hand and quipped: "No fair".

Through six games in the 2021 season, Weaver has 17 tackles and four sacks.

Weaver is an exciting prospect, at 196cm tall and 109kg, and hasn't given up on entering the NFL as he makes his comeback from an ACL injury.
