Other notable predictions by Mystic Marcus

While mystic Marcus has a history of sniffing out a winner in contests, the pig is hoping to continue its unbroken record for the 2018 World Cup.

Marcus guessed the winner of the 2014 World Cup and the Wimbledon tennis finals.

The eight-year-old psychic pig was even reported to have predicted the emergence of Donald Trump in the US elections.

It also predicted Brexit even when its owner felt otherwise.

How he does it

Marcus has predicted contests’ winners by picking apples. According to its owner, the apples will include markers - such as pictures or flags - and Marcus will gobble down the winner.

Marcus owner, Juliette said: “A few years ago I was invited on a radio show because of Paul the octopus predicting results and they wanted to see if I had any animals that had the ability. I hadn't tried the seventh child theory out so thought I'd give it ago. They used apples and oranges and Marcus predicted the football results, it was amazing.”

An octopus once predicted winners of previous World Cup matches at different group stages.
