Ricky here with Thursday's Newround.

0:00:060:00:08

Coming up:

0:00:080:00:10

Big minecraft news,

0:00:100:00:12

And the song breaking even more records.

0:00:120:00:19

He's one of Britain's greatest ever athletes -

0:00:240:00:26

but on Saturday night, Sir Mo Farah will be

0:00:260:00:29

competing in his last race at a major competition.

0:00:290:00:32

Jenny's had a look back over his amazing career.

0:00:320:00:38

Mo Farah celebrating a win has become a familiar sight,

0:00:380:00:42

and he is hoping for yet another in the 5000 metres on Saturday,

0:00:420:00:46

one of his last ever races before he retires.

0:00:460:00:49

But, let's back up a moment and go back to the start.

0:00:490:00:53

Mo moved from Somalia in Africa to England

0:00:530:00:57

when he was only eight years old.

0:00:570:01:00

He barely knew a word of English but it was here

0:01:000:01:03

that he first realised he could run, and fast.

0:01:030:01:06

From then on, there was no stopping him.

0:01:060:01:08

His first major win came in 2011 when he took gold in the 5000 metres

0:01:080:01:13

at the World Championships in South Korea.

0:01:130:01:16

Mo moved to the US, and trained hard in some tough conditions.

0:01:160:01:21

But, it paid off.

0:01:210:01:23

He stormed the London 2012 Olympics, picking up two golds and of course

0:01:230:01:27

celebrating with his famous Mo-bot.

0:01:270:01:31

Mo took the double again at Rio.

0:01:310:01:34

And another gold in last weeks 10,000 metres sealed his place

0:01:340:01:37

as one of the greatest British athletes of all time.

0:01:370:01:41

Don't worry, it won't be the last we see of Mo,

0:01:410:01:44

because he will be switching over to marathon running instead.

0:01:440:01:47

But first he faces one of his last big challenges

0:01:470:01:51

on Saturday in the 5000 metres.

0:01:510:01:54

And if you've been watching the World Athletics Championships,

0:01:540:01:57

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

0:01:570:02:01

What a journey he's been on.

0:02:010:02:08

It is the story that has dominated these World Championships.

0:02:080:02:11

And it could be about to have a pretty epic ending.

0:02:110:02:14

Tonight, Botswana's Isaac Makwala will have the chance

0:02:140:02:17

to become a world champion.

0:02:170:02:19

But just two days ago, the dream seemed over for him.

0:02:190:02:23

He was one of a number of athletes affected by a stomach bug

0:02:230:02:26

and stopped from competing for medical reasons.

0:02:260:02:30

He missed the chance to run in the 400 metres and had to be

0:02:300:02:33

monitored by doctors.

0:02:330:02:35

But then he was given the chance to run a solo time

0:02:350:02:39

trial in the 200 metres.

0:02:390:02:41

He had to get the qualifying time, roared on by the crowd,

0:02:410:02:44

he did it, booking him a place in the semifinals.

0:02:440:02:48

I would like to thank the IAAF for giving me another chance.

0:02:480:02:51

And the crowd was so amazing, they gave me belief.

0:02:510:02:57

I want to thank this crowd, it is so amazing.

0:02:570:03:01

It is not just the crowd that will be amazing if he smashes

0:03:010:03:04

the 200 meter final this evening.

0:03:040:03:09

Stargazers are getting ready to enjoy the spectacular

0:03:090:03:12

Perseid Meteor Shower.

0:03:120:03:14

But what is it?

0:03:140:03:15

And how can you watch it?

0:03:150:03:17

BBC Weatherman Simon King can explain.

0:03:170:03:20

So it is the annual Perseid meteor shower over the next few days,

0:03:200:03:24

and while it sounds quite technical, all it really means

0:03:240:03:27

is a load of shooting stars up in the night sky.

0:03:270:03:30

You might be lucky enough to see some.

0:03:300:03:33

You will either have to be getting up early in the morning

0:03:330:03:36

or staying up quite late.

0:03:360:03:37

That is the best time to see it.

0:03:370:03:41

Tonight should be quite a good night actually.

0:03:410:03:43

For England and Wales there will be some clear skies.

0:03:430:03:45

Friday night, perhaps eastern England, but even then it might

0:03:450:03:48

be still too cloudy.

0:03:480:03:49

But for England and Wales tonight, those clear skies will give a great

0:03:490:03:52

view of the night sky to catch those shooting stars.

0:03:520:03:56

But for Scotland and Northern Ireland more cloud rolling in here,

0:03:560:03:59

and some outbreaks of rain as well.

0:03:590:04:01

So not particularly good there, good luck if you want to catch them.

0:04:010:04:06

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

0:04:060:04:09

called Minecon, is being changed.

0:04:090:04:11

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

0:04:110:04:14

Minecon Earth, instead.

0:04:140:04:16

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

0:04:160:04:19

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

0:04:190:04:22

their Minecraft-themed costumes online.

0:04:220:04:26

Finally to this song.

0:04:260:04:34

Yep - we all know it.

0:04:340:04:36

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

0:04:360:04:39

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

0:04:390:04:42

It's been viewed more than three billion times.

0:04:420:04:45

And it was only uploaded in January!

0:04:450:04:52

That's all from me, Newsround's back at 7:40am tomorrow with Ayshah.

0:04:520:04:57

We love CBBC. And we love The Next Step... And The Dumping Ground.

0:05:050:05:09

Can't wait for more episodes.

0:05:090:05:11

BOTH: We love CBBC!

0:05:110:05:14

Whoo!

0:05:140:05:16

My favourite programme is The Next Step.

0:05:160:05:17

Because it has loads of drama and it's really good at dancing,

0:05:170:05:20

and I love dancing, too.
