 Psychic Octopus Predicts the World Cup Winner!

Paul the psychic octopus has predicted Spain will beat Holland and win World Cup 2010.

Germany, on the other hand, will win in the third and fourth place play-off.

While facing backlash from German fans, the octopus has found fans in Spain.

Prime Minister Jose Luiz Rodriguez Zapatero joked that Paul might be the one in need of protection.

"I am concerned for the octopus. I am thinking of sending him a protective team," The Telegraph quoted Zapatero as saying.

There's even a fishing ban in the offing for the psychic animal to protect him from German fishermen.

The octopus had already made its prediction for the third and fourth place play-off opting for the mussel in the Germany box.

It took Paul just a couple of minutes to decide its adopted nation will beat Uruguay to take third place in the tournament.
