World Cup hero "Paul the Octopus" is gone, but soccer fans are celebrating his new memorial unveiled Thursday in Germany.

The 6 ½-foot high plastic replica at the Oberhausen Aquarium shows the octopus clutching a soccer ball. His ashes are in a gold-leaf covered urn, inside the ball.

Last year, Paul the Octopus predicted the winners in all seven of Germany's World Cup games, as well as the championship game.
