Hi, I'm Ayshah and this is Newsround.
Coming up: Bronze for Bolt in his final solo race.
The world's biggest heart goes on display.
And the little lamb who had a lucky break.
Super sprinter Usain Bolt missed out on a gold medal
in his last solo race at the World Championships
He was beaten by American Justin Gatlin who took the gold.
As the race ended, Usain went to congratulate him on his win.
It wasn't the end to Usain's career many were hoping for,
but his position as a fantastic athlete is not in doubt.
My start is killing me.
It is just...
Normally I would get better through the rounds,
but it did not come together and that is what killed me.
It did not come together and I knew that it did not come together,
but I felt like it was there, do you know what I mean?
The fact that I did not get it, that is the reason I lost,
but it is just one of those things.
Gold medal winner Justin Gatlin said it meant a lot to win the race.
It is still an amazing night because it is Usain Bolt's last race.
I've had so many victories and so many losses, and to be able
to run against him throughout the years, you know,
it is an amazing night.
Staying with sport and he's already got an Olympic gold,
and took another two gold medals at the World Swimming Championships,
and now Adam Peaty has been answering your questions.
If I could do any other sport, I would probably do boxing
because I love that sport, I love watching it when I am at home
and it is something I have had a passion for from a young age.
My question for you is how do you get a six-pack?
A six-pack is a lot of ab work, but at the same time,
a very, very good diet, no junk food at all, no crisps,
no chocolate, no fizzy drinks.
Before my race, I get ready, I just put my headphones in,
a little bit of meditation, I like to be calm and relaxed
and then I start to get a little bit up for it,
take my caffeine, and hopefully get a little bit angry as well to get me
out there and swimming fast.
Rita from Woking asks, "How do you motivate yourself
to keep training even when you're tired and you do not want to?"
A great question, Rita.
If you have that underlying motivation that is going to be
stronger than anything else, you will pick yourself up those days
that you do not want to and surround yourself with positive people,
people that are on the same journey as you, and hopefully
you will achieve those dreams.
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
When I was younger I wanted to be a Royal Marine.
I wanted to be in the army from a very young age
because I was obsessed by that kind of regiment and camaraderie,
but then I found something that I was good at, swimming,
and I am still getting that kind of camaraderie in the group as well.
For now, I am just going to be a swimmer.
Next, there are more than 11 million people in the UK with some
form of hearing loss.
These deaf children have been telling the BBC how they'd
like hearing people to treat them.
Thanks for that
Thanks for that advice.
The world's largest heart has gone on display
at Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum.
It belonged to a blue whale whose body had washed up on a river bank
in Canada three years ago.
The organ is almost as big as a person, and would have weighed
at least 181kg before it was removed.
It's helping scientists understand more about the blue whale's body.
The blue whale is the biggest species of animal that has ever
lived on Earth, so bigger than any dinosaur.
Most of the time, blue whale carcasses, they actually sink,
because blue whales do not have as much fat or blubber
as other species of whales.
This is really the first and only blue whale heart.
We are getting precise measurements that people were just sort of
To the 9-year-old boy who got in touch with Nasa about a job
they recently posted.
The space agency are looking for a planetary protection officer.
In a letter, Jack from New Jersey in America said: "I may be nine,
but I think I would be perfect for the job." While Jack
didn't get the position, he did get a reply saying: "We hope
to see you here at Nasa one of these days."
Take a look at this lucky lamb who was rescued
after hurting her leg.
Lily the lamb was found shivering in a hedge near a farm last week.
The farmer found her and adopted her and now she's moved
in with the sheepdogs in the kitchen.
That's all from me and the weekend team.
Newsround's back tomorrow morning with Ricky from 7:40.
