The Octopus Statue

Even none football fans now know who Paul the octopus is. The departed Paul gained fame in the last World Cup by correctly tipping eight straight matches, including Spain's 1-0 win against Holland in the final.

If there is still anyone who still wondered about the fame of Paul, the psychic octopus, this will end your doubts. In memory of Paul, a memorial will be built in Germany. Paul will have his own "Paul Corner" at the aquarium that was his former home, along with a 1.8m statue of Paul on top of a football.

Who would have thought of this during the World Cup last year? The first person to get a statue because of the World Cup is not a person but an octopus!
