Added: 8. July 2010

A psychic German octopus called ‘Paul’ could find himself on the menu if frustrated football fans get their way.

Famous for predicting world cup winners, he has a 100 percent record following Spain’s defeat over Germany yesterday.

But now his owner has received death threats and even recipe suggestions from football supporters who have found their teams on the wrong side of his predictive powers.

Paul will no doubt suck up the pressure ahead of Germany’s game against Uruguay this Saturday.

Football’s psychic sea creature – Paul The Octopus – is making yet another World Cup prediction.

But this time, the eight-tentacled oracle is betting on Spain winning the semi-final against his home country, Germany.

Paul has a perfect record when it comes to predicting the outcome of Germany’s World Cup matches.

So fans better keep their fingers crossed for Wednesday’s clash.

The psychic cephalopod’s even gained a few worldwide followers of his own.

And there’s no truth to the rumour that if Paul turns out to be right this time, he could end up on the sushi menu.
