Hello, Team Newsround!

0:00:040:00:05

I'm Jenny - you are live with CBBC.

0:00:050:00:07

All this is on the way:

0:00:070:00:09

Why this athlete was running solo...

0:00:090:00:12

big minecraft news...

0:00:120:00:14

And the song breaking even more records.

0:00:140:00:21

First to the big argument between the United States

0:00:290:00:31

of America and North Korea, a country in the east of Asia.

0:00:310:00:35

So what do we know?

0:00:350:00:36

Here's Whitney.

0:00:360:00:38

Two men and two Koreas - warships, missiles and threats.

0:00:380:00:45

What is going on and is it as scary as it sounds?

0:00:450:00:49

Let's start with the two Koreas.

0:00:490:00:50

One country is called North Korea and

0:00:500:00:52

the other, South Korea.

0:00:520:00:55

They were split in two after World War II,

0:00:550:00:58

fought a war with each other shortly after that,

0:00:580:01:01

and haven't gotten along since.

0:01:010:01:04

And now the two men?

0:01:040:01:06

One is the leader of North Korea.

0:01:060:01:08

He is Kim Jong Un and he runs the country

0:01:080:01:11

just like his dad and grandad before him.

0:01:110:01:15

The other is Donald Trump, President of the USA -

0:01:150:01:19

a country which has supported South Korea for along time.

0:01:190:01:23

North Korea is a country that has cut itself off

0:01:230:01:26

from the rest of the world.

0:01:260:01:28

Lots of things are run in secret there, and Kim has

0:01:280:01:32

huge control over people's lives.

0:01:320:01:35

He has also been trying to build nuclear missiles - powerful bombs

0:01:350:01:39

that can cause devastating damage, that one day might be able to hit

0:01:390:01:44

the USA.

0:01:440:01:46

President Trump wants to stop this happening and he's given a warning.

0:01:460:01:54

North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States.

0:01:540:01:57

They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.

0:01:570:02:05

In return, North Korea has threatened US military bases in

0:02:050:02:08

the area.

0:02:080:02:11

So all of this is pretty worrying to many people around the world.

0:02:110:02:16

But there have been many arguments between the USA

0:02:160:02:19

and North Korea in the past and, although they've never

0:02:190:02:22

been friends, things have been worked out to stop a war.

0:02:220:02:26

Everyone is hoping that will be the case this time as well.

0:02:260:02:31

If you've been watching the World Athletics Championships,

0:02:330:02:35

you'll have heard of this guy - Botswana's Isaac Makwala.

0:02:350:02:38

What a journey he's been on.

0:02:380:02:39

Two days ago, he was one of a number of athletes

0:02:390:02:42

affected by a stomach bug, and was stopped from

0:02:420:02:44

competing in the 400 metres, for medical reasons.

0:02:440:02:47

He's now been given the chance to run the 200 metres on his own.

0:02:470:02:51

Roared on by the crowd, he qualified, booking

0:02:510:02:53

a place in the semi finals.

0:02:530:02:57

I wish to thank the IAAF for giving me another chance.

0:02:570:03:00

And the crowd is so amazing.

0:03:000:03:03

They led me to believe.

0:03:030:03:04

The crowd for British...

0:03:040:03:06

I just want to thank this crowd - it's so amazing.

0:03:060:03:10

And Mo Farah will be going for gold again on Saturday,

0:03:100:03:13

after he qualified for the final of the 5,000 metres last night.

0:03:130:03:17

He'll be joined by fellow Brit Andy Butchart,

0:03:170:03:19

after he qualified as a fastest loser from the second heat.

0:03:190:03:22

Mo says he's worked hard for what he's achieved,

0:03:220:03:24

and encourages people to do the same.

0:03:240:03:28

You can't dream of something unless you do something about it.

0:03:280:03:30

And I've been given a chance in life and I

0:03:300:03:33

work for hard for it, and I achieve what I have achieved

0:03:330:03:36

through hard work and keep grafting.

0:03:360:03:38

To all the kids out there, the youngsters, you can be like me.

0:03:380:03:42

And there's another huge sporting event happening

0:03:420:03:44

in Sheffield this week - the UK Special Olympics.

0:03:440:03:47

Around 2,600 competitors are taking part in the games,

0:03:470:03:51

featuring athletes with a variety of learning disabilities.

0:03:510:03:54

Here's Hayley.

0:03:540:03:59

This year's Special Olympics has had more interest than ever before, and

0:03:590:04:03

more athletes have taken to the tracks.

0:04:030:04:06

Keira is the current women's world champion in cycling

0:04:060:04:10

for intellectual disabilities, and she has been training for three

0:04:100:04:13

years for today's Special Olympics.

0:04:130:04:15

Keira, you've not got long until your first race.

0:04:150:04:17

How are you feeling?

0:04:170:04:19

I am nervous, I'm not going to lie.

0:04:190:04:21

There's quite a lot of great writers here so obviously the

0:04:210:04:26

There's quite a lot of great riders here so obviously the

0:04:260:04:29

competition is going to be quite high.

0:04:290:04:30

Do you find your learning disability does have an effect on

0:04:300:04:33

your training, does it make it more difficult?

0:04:330:04:35

Yes, because I struggle with sense of direction.

0:04:350:04:37

Because I struggle with time as well the

0:04:370:04:39

Special Olympics gave me a place where I could be myself, with

0:04:390:04:42

everybody else, and it's just amazing.

0:04:420:04:45

Has all that hard work paid off?

0:04:450:04:49

Now, I've just found out the results and I can tell you that you

0:04:490:04:52

came second!

0:04:520:04:53

Yeah!

0:04:530:04:56

Well done!

0:04:560:04:57

How do you feel?

0:04:570:04:58

Really good!

0:04:580:04:59

Well, there's more to go, but you just got a silver medal!

0:04:590:05:02

Well done!

0:05:020:05:03

Thank you.

0:05:030:05:05

Big news for Minecraft fans now, as the yearly conference,

0:05:050:05:07

called Minecon, is being changed.

0:05:070:05:09

It'll now be a free and interactive, live streamed show, called

0:05:090:05:13

Minecon Earth, instead.

0:05:130:05:15

The Minecraft team hope this will mean more people can take part.

0:05:150:05:19

They're still encouraging fans to dress up, and submit

0:05:190:05:21

their Minecraft-themed costumes online.

0:05:210:05:24

Next to this song.

0:05:240:05:31

Yep - we all know it.

0:05:310:05:33

It's one of the catchiest tunes of the Summer - Despasito.

0:05:330:05:35

Well it's now the most watched video on YouTube of all time.

0:05:350:05:38

It's been viewed more than 3 billion times.

0:05:380:05:40

I'm a Bengal, FYI.

0:05:520:05:53

Have a brilliant day!

0:05:530:05:59

I've got two favourite shows on CBBC.

0:06:040:06:06

My first one is The Next Step because I love dancing.

0:06:060:06:09

I'm a ballet dancer.
