An octopus who had predicted all three of Japan's group stage results at the World Cup has been turned into seafood.

Despite gaining national attention for its success, however, the fisherman who caught Rabio, Kimio Abe, sent him to market before Japan's third match against Poland.

The 51-year-old fisherman, however, caught another octopus - which he named Rabio Jr. - to make its pick for the Japan-Belgium match.

Rabiot the octopus can predict Japan's results at the World Cup by swimming to the area of a pool holding the flag of the team it thinks will win.

Remarkably, the smart mollusc correctly predicted Japan's win over Colombia in Japan's opening game of the tournament, followed by a draw against Senegal and a defeat to Poland.

Pictures of what appeared to be the dismembered octopus were shared on social media, although it could not be confirmed that this was definitely Rabiot.

Google releases Beta 3 of Android P
Google has released the fourth Developer Preview (DP) of Android P for the Google Pixel , Pixel XL , Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL . However, given that Digital Wellbeing is an OS-level feature, Google could take a launch approach similar to the Pixel 2.

"I hope that the second Rabiot will also give all the outcomes correctly and that Japan will go all the way", he said, according to Sora News 24.

In 2010, Paul the octopus became an global star after correctly predicting the results of all Germany's games in the 2010 World Cup, as well as the final - in which it backed Spain to win.

But the psychic cephalopod didn't get a chance to predict Japan's heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Belgium in the Round of 16 Monday. Paul passed away peacefully in his aquarium at the Sea Life Center in Oberhausen in 2012.

Paul died in October 2010 aged two-and-a-half and without passing on his rare talent to any offspring.

Meanwhile Nelly took part in a spectacular penalty shootout at the Serengeti Park zoo in Hodenhagen, northern Germany on the first day of the competition.
