Predicting Paul the octopus found dead!

The cephalopod mollusc, who became famous world-wide for his Football World Cup predictions, was thought to have passed away during the night. Paul successfully predicted the outcome of eight matches during this years competition in South Africa:

Staff at the Sea Life centre in Oberhausen said they were “devastated” to learn that he had passed away during the night. “We are consoled by the knowledge that he enjoyed a good life,”

Paul’s legacy will live on with a memorial, which is to be placed in the Oberhausen centre. Paul has the opportunity to continue his impressive prediction run from beyond the grave, as he predicted England to be granted the bid for the 2018 World Cup. Only time will tell if his death will mean the end of his streak…
