AND now the bereavement announcements.
The death has taken place of Paul the Octopus (nee Tintenfisch) of Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany.
The psychic sea-creature who shot to global fame for correctly predicting World Cup match results, is reported to have died in his aquarium last night.
Stefan Porwoll, manager of the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre said:
“He appears to have passed away peacefully during the night, of natural causes, and we are consoled by the knowledge that he enjoyed a good life here.”
Rumours that Paul is set to be flushed down the toilet have not been confirmed.
But did he see it coming?
