Big minecraft news,
And the song breaking even more records.
He's one of Britain's greatest ever athletes -
but on Saturday night, Sir Mo Farah will be
competing in his last race at a major competition.
Jenny's had a look back over his amazing career.
Mo Farah celebrating a win has become a familiar sight,
and he is hoping for yet another in the 5000 metres on Saturday,
one of his last ever races before he retires.
But, let's back up a moment and go back to the start.
Mo moved from Somalia in Africa to England
when he was only eight years old.
He barely knew a word of English but it was here
that he first realised he could run, and fast.
From then on, there was no stopping him.
His first major win came in 2011 when he took gold in the 5000 metres
at the World Championships in South Korea.
Mo moved to the US, and trained hard in some tough conditions.
But, it paid off.
He stormed the London 2012 Olympics, picking up two golds and of course
celebrating with his famous Mo-bot.
Mo took the double again at Rio.
And another gold in last weeks 10,000 metres sealed his place
as one of the greatest British athletes of all time.
Don't worry, it won't be the last we see of Mo,
because he will be switching over to marathon running instead.
But first he faces one of his last big challenges
on Saturday in the 5000 metres.
And if you've been watching the World Athletics Championships,
you'll definitely have heard of this guy - Botswana's Isaac Makwala.
What a journey he's been on.
It is the story that has dominated these World Championships.
And it could be about to have a pretty epic ending.
Tonight, Botswana's Isaac Makwala will have the chance
to become a world champion.
But just two days ago, the dream seemed over for him.
He was one of a number of athletes affected by a stomach bug
and stopped from competing for medical reasons.
He missed the chance to run in the 400 metres and had to be
monitored by doctors.
But then he was given the chance to run a solo time
trial in the 200 metres.
He had to get the qualifying time, roared on by the crowd,
he did it, booking him a place in the semifinals.
I would like to thank the IAAF for giving me another chance.
And the crowd was so amazing, they gave me belief.
I want to thank this crowd, it is so amazing.
It is not just the crowd that will be amazing if he smashes
the 200 meter final this evening.
Stargazers are getting ready to enjoy the spectacular
Perseid Meteor Shower.
But what is it?
And how can you watch it?
BBC Weatherman Simon King can explain.
So it is the annual Perseid meteor shower over the next few days,
and while it sounds quite technical, all it really means
is a load of shooting stars up in the night sky.
You might be lucky enough to see some.
You will either have to be getting up early in the morning
or staying up quite late.
That is the best time to see it.
Tonight should be quite a good night actually.
For England and Wales there will be some clear skies.
Friday night, perhaps eastern England, but even then it might
be still too cloudy.
But for England and Wales tonight, those clear skies will give a great
view of the night sky to catch those shooting stars.
But for Scotland and Northern Ireland more cloud rolling in here,
and some outbreaks of rain as well.
So not particularly good there, good luck if you want to catch them.
Big news for Minecraft fans now, as the yearly conference,
called Minecon, is being changed.
It'll now be a free and interactive, live streamed show, called
Minecon Earth, instead.
The Minecraft team hope this will mean more people can take part.
They're still encouraging fans to dress up, and submit
their Minecraft-themed costumes online.
Finally to this song.
Yep - we all know it.
It's one of the catchiest tunes of the summer - Despasito.
Well it's now the most watched video on YouTube of all time.
It's been viewed more than three billion times.
And it was only uploaded in January!
That's all from me, Newsround's back at 7:40am tomorrow with Ayshah.
We love CBBC. And we love The Next Step... And The Dumping Ground.
Can't wait for more episodes.
BOTH: We love CBBC!
My favourite programme is The Next Step.
Because it has loads of drama and it's really good at dancing,
and I love dancing, too.
