It's over

The World Cup has been decided. Spain will decisively beat The Netherlands in Sunday’s final, so everyone may as well pack up and go home. How do we know this? Paul the Psychic Octopus predicted it, and we all know how accurate he is when it comes to picking football winners. Put your mortgage on Spain. Go on, do it.

The amphibious genius also predicted that Germany would beat Uruguay tomorrow night in the third place play-off, while a gaggle of spit-flecked hacks and snappers crowd the poor fella. He’s only doing his job, guys, back up already.

‘Paul is such a professional oracle he doesn't even care that hundreds of journalists are watching and commenting on every move he makes,’ said Stefan Porwoll of the Sea Life Aquarium manager. ‘We're so proud of him.’
