Morning all, Ricky here with your Monday headlines.
First up, the Netherlands are European champions
after winning the Women's Euros.
Hosts the Netherlands won the competition with a thrilling 4-2
victory over Denmark.
The tournement is being called the most successful
Women's Euros ever.
Let's get you a round-up of the action at the World Athletics
Championships in London.
Let's start with the boos - American sprinter Justin Gatlin,
who shocked a lot of people when he beat Usain Bolt in the 100m
men's final, was booed again after picking up gold.
Bolt finished third and got bronze.
Gatlin's been in trouble before for taking banned drugs.
Better news for Jessica Ennis Hill - the retired athlete didn't have
to work up a sweat to pick up this gold.
She got the top prize after Russian drug cheat Tatyana Chernova
was stripped of her 2011 World Athletics Champion
So an upgrade from silver to gold for Jess.
Do you think men should always be the ones to put out the bins
while women always do the dishes?
Well, the people who make adverts have been told to be more careful
about how they show the roles of boys and girls.
Ayshah's got more.
Her hair is so long and silky!
Have a look at these adverts...
Grown-up like mummy, and strong like daddy.
That's nothing compared to Captain Awesome's day.
Did you notice something about them?
I thought they were just random.
I don't really watch this type of thing.
Oh, no, doll advert.
Well, if you watch closely, there's an issue that some people
think is a bit of a problem.
That's with the way they seem to show how girls should be
and how boys should be.
This is known as gender stereotyping.
Ads that paint a picture that it's, for example, the woman's role
to tidy up after her family, who've trashed the house.
That's her job in life.
Similarly, ads that mock men for being hopeless at performing
straightforward parental or household tasks, just
because they're a man.
Now that the kids know what to look for, has it changed
what they think of the ads?
The way they are putting it is just, like, girls are weak and pretty
but boys are strong, and that's not always
the way it works.
I actually know quite a few boys who quite like dolls,
but I know about ten girls who hates dolls.
I hate dolls.
I've never, ever played with dolls.
I think you should get a boy and a few girls
and about two boys on it as well.
The Munch Bunch is all right because it has girls in and boys in.
If I was in charge of the adverts, I would try to make it more modern
and fair for boys and girls.
Just try and close the sexist gap and try and get an equal number
of boys and girls in it.
you about our latest Newsround special.
This one tells the story of 10-year-old Sumayyah,
11-year-old Shubhashukla and 9-year-old Kamolpriya.
They're all are on a mission of a lifetime to find out
what happened to their families during Indian partition
70 years ago.
They travel from the UK to India and Bangladesh to re-create
the journey that their families made so many years ago.
I want you to go to India and find out what you can
about our family history.
I have some letters, you go to Bangladesh
and find my old home for yourself.
Once we find it we will tell you all about it.
Thank you, Daddy!
This is my great, great grandfather.
We're wondering if you could help us find an old house?
This was one of the posh houses in this area.
I've found a piece of the puzzle of my family's history and I'm
willing to find out the rest of this puzzle.
It's unlike anything I've ever seen in my life!
We believe that this is your ancestral home.
It's very hot.
This place is open 24 hours a day.
The thing that I'll probably remember about this whole trip
is my grandad's reaction.
It's amazing, it's amazing, it's amazing!
I just think she must have been such a strong woman
to go through all that.
And I'm really proud that I could uncover my
That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half-an-hour.
