German 'psychic' octopus predicts Spanish win


A "psychic" octopus in Germany, which appears to have correctly predicted every World Cup game involving the national team so far, has picked Spain over Germany in the semi-final.

Paul, from the Sea Life Aquarium in the western city of Oberhausen, chose a mussel from a jar with the Spanish flag instead of one with a German flag.

The creature has a record of predicting German victories, although during Euro 2008 he wrongly picked Germany as the victor against Spain.
