Octopus Paul to forecast WC final
Paul will first pick the winner of the third-place playoff game before selecting the winner for the final.

New Delhi: Celebrity octopus Paul, who has so far correctly predicted the outcome of all of Germany's games in the 2010 World Cup, will now also forecast the result of the final between Spain and the Netherlands.

According to reports, Paul will also predict the outcome of the third-place playoff game between Germany and Uruguay even though most German fans are angry and some have called for its killing or being thrown into the shark tank at the German aquarium in Oberhausen.

According to a report in a German newspaper, there have been a "host of comments on Facebook, Twitter...suggesting Paul should be fried, barbecued or turned into a seafood salad or paella".

Paul's handlers will follow the routine whereby two boxes, containing his favourite food as well as the flags of the two opposing team, will be lowered into is tank. Whichever box Paul picks food from first will be adjudged the winner.

Paul will first pick the winner of the third-place playoff game before selecting the winner for the final.
