World Cup star Paul, the Psychic Octopus dies

Paul, the psychic octopus has died today, October 26, in his aquarium in Germany.

The manager of Oberhausen Sea Life Centre which housed Paul The Octopus has told Daily Mail Online that the psychic octopus was found dead this early morning. Cause of death is unknown but the manager believes that he had a natural death.

Paul The Octopus only lived for more than 2 years and for an octopus, they say, it's already a normal lifespan.

People from the Sea Life Centre are going to bury Paul within their grounds and a memorial shrine is being planned for him, Daily Mail reports.

For the football fans, Paul was the real star during the World Cup 2010 last July when he correctly predicted all of Germany's matches including its defeat to Spain in the semi-finals.

If you remember, Germans wanted Paul to die that time after he chose Spain to win over his homeland. But the Spanish people have adored him since then and even after the finals when he predicted Spain to emerge as champion over the Netherlands.

As it turned out, it was already Paul's last prediction and the next World Cup definitely won't be as exciting as the recent World Cup.
