Ukraine organisers have revealed their answer to Paul the psychic octopus - Fred the psychic ferret.

The peculiar reliance on an animal to predict match results seems to be going from strength to strength ever since Paul the octopus was attributed with predicting the outcome of several of Germany's games during the 2010 World Cup. Now the Ukraine hopes to replicate Paul's success with their own psychic mascot - Fred the ferret.

It doesn't end there though, now other countries are trying to get in on the act with their own animal representatives. Fred will also joined by the soothsayer hog Khryak in Kiev and Citta the elephant in Krakow, Poland.

"It is hoped the mammal will have the same success in predicting the winners of games in this summer's tournament as his eight-legged predecessor did for Germany's matches in the 2010 World Cup."
