Spain aren't the only trophy winners of the World Cup, Paul the Octopus has also been rewarded for his contribution to the tournament.

With 100% accuracy in his match predictions, the 8 legged phenomenon was arguably the most consistent performer of the World Cup.

Paul received his very own trophy at his home in Oberhausen Germany.

The oracle correctly predicted the outcome of all Germany's games in South Africa and then went on to pick Spain to be the overall winners.

But not everyone has been impressed by his "psychic powers".

Bookmakers William Hill say Paul cost their industry an estimated £500,000.
