Achilles, a deaf cat from Russia said to possess ‘psychic’ powers has predicted the outcome of the first match of the 2018 World Cup.

Russia were hosting Saudi Arabia at the Luzhniki Stadium today in a World Cup opening fixture.

The host country Russia has managed to beat Saudi Arabia 5-0.

The cat was introduced at a press conference in Russia on Wednesday and two bowls of cat food, one with the Russia flag, the other with the Saudi flag, placed in front of it.
