Paul the Octopus is no more, but Google have kept his spirit alive with Tuesday's "Google Doodle."

The allegedly clairvoyant cephalopod had quite a run predicting matches during the 2010 World Cup before dying that fall, and no single animal has stepped up to take his place this time around. 

But Google haven't forgotten poor Paul and have honoured him Tuesday with a clever doodle ahead of the Belgium vs. Algeria match.
