thumbnail Hello,

100 per cent record at the finals for the eight-legged wonder...

The now infamous oracle octopus of Oberhausen, known as Paul, has once again come up trumps in predicting a winner after Spain defeated Netherlands to claim the 2010 World Cup.

Having correctly predicted all of Germany's games at the finals in South Africa, including Saturday's third place playoff win over Uruguay, the visionary invertebrate maintained his 100 per cent record for the tournament having opted for the Spaniards in Sunday's final in his first forecast in a game involving teams other than the Germans.

The tentacled telepathist's tally of eight correct results brings the octopuses record to 12 correct results from 14 selections.
