The Arsenal frontman Nicklas Bendtner is responsible for one of the weirdest bits of footage yet from South Africa. During Denmark's defeat by Japan, he leans over to colour in the white of his socks with felt tip. His reason? An unauthorised message was being picked up by cameras.
Paul, a two-year-old born in England but raised in Germany, is an oracle. He's reliable too, predicting Germany's wins over Australia and Ghana, and their loss to Serbia.

He lives at the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen.
