World cup octopus "Paul" dead

The octopus famed for forecasting winners of Soccer world cup games had been found dead yesterday.

Paul successfully predicted 7 matches in a row that brought lot of love and criticism from Football fans. It would select food from one of two boxes bearing the flags of competing nations.

Pauls best prediction was when it selected Spain over the Netherlands as the winner of the Soccer world cup.

The staff at the German aquarium has told that they were so devastated to find the octopus dead. A normal Octopus lives only around 2 years and thus it's not a big deal for them it seems. But the football fans, specially from the winning nations will be pretty sad - If you are touched, feel free to comment below.
