Octopus predicts footy results!

Paul the octopus

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

An octopus in Germany has been successfully predicting the country's World Cup football results.

Paul, who lives in an aquarium city of Oberhausen, has been picking out the correct winners of Germany's games since the competition started.

His keepers put two glasses in his tank showing the flags of the two teams that are playing.

There's a tasty snack in each, but he can only choose one winner!

And he reckoned in the Quarter Final between Germany and Argentina, the Germans would win... looks like he was right again!
