Psychic octopus selects Spain as World Cup champs

Psychic octopus selects Spain as World Cup champs

The now famous two-and-a-half- year-old octopus called Paul, who is based at the Sea Life Aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany has made his final prediction for the World Cup, and it's good news for the Spanish.

Paul selected the mussel in a box adorned with the Spanish flag, rather than one depicting the Dutch colours, signalling his pick for the tournament's winner.

The octopus is said to have psychic powers after correctly predicting all six of Germany's World Cup matches.

According to Paul's choices, his 'home' country will come out on top against Uruguay in Saturday's battle for third place.
