The 'billionaire strut' is being imitated by some of the most famous people in the world as Conor McGregor's reach continues to grow.

First Paul Pogba, then NBA star Marc Gasol, now Justin Bieber.

The Notorious' 'billy strut' seems to have permeated all walks of life.

The 'Let Me Love You' singer casually joined Barcelona players Neymar and Rafinha Alcantara for a spot of Barcelona training today.

In fairness to Bieber, he has a decent left peg.

After sending Rafinha the wrong way with a coolly-taken penalty, the worldwide music star dropped the McGregor strut (skip to 0:43):

Bieber's attempt at the UFC double-champion's now infamous pre-fight octagon walk comes after Spanish basketballer Gasol strutted back the court following a game-winning three-pointer for the Memphis Grizzlies:

Having been to see the Dubliner knock out Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight belt in Madison Square Garden, wrestling legend Triple H (who believes McGregor could one day appear in the WWE) also tweeted his appreciation for the strut:

WWE legend Vince McMahon lends the Irish fighter his inspiration for the strut.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour last week, McGregor's coach John Kavanagh explained how the UFC star was asked by American footbal star Odell Beckham Jnr to teach him the "billy strut" after his win in New York city.

The "billionaire strut" has achieved legendary status after being imitated by some of the world's best sportsmen since the Crumlin man defeated Alvarez to make UFC history.

Manchester United and France midfielder Pogba showed his appreciation for the Notorious while training with his national team:

 

The notorious walk 😂😎👊🏾 bonne semaine à tous @equipedefrance #fiersdetrebleus @thenotoriousmma

It seems the UFC superstar's popularity knows absolutely no bounds.

Now McGregor just needs to ensure he doesn't crop a fan out of a photo again.
