Paul, the Bournemouth-born cephalopod international match pundit of UEFA Euro 2008 and FIFA World Cup 2010, passed away in Germany last week.
Was he a genius, or blessed with a special prophetic gift? I reckon he was just lucky. Regardless, I have no doubt many mourners will consider him irreplaceable. But Sea Life in Oberhausen has found a way:
Long live Paul II!
May he be an octoprophet with honour in his own aquarium.
