It's a great Mothers Day
for this rare gorilla.
Plus the footie-mad robots
who learn as they play.
First, at the Paralympic Winter
Olympics in PyeongChang
the medals keep coming.
Paralympics GB picked up silver
and bronze on day two of the games.
The BBC's Kate Grey is there.
It's been another brilliant
day for Paralympics GB
here in Pyeongchang.
Two medals to add to the silver
that they won yesterday
and it was Millie Knight who won
that silver medal yesterday that has
won another silver today
with her guide Brett Wild.
It's been quite emotional.
Even on the podium yesterday,
it was quite hard not
to tear up a little bit.
Yeah, it's been a struggle to get
here and I can't believe this
is what is hanging round our neck.
Those silver medals
are quite special.
Brett, your first Paralympic Games.
This is a pretty good way to go.
It's such an honour just to be here.
To come away now, two races, two
medals, it's absolutely fantastic.
And they beat their team-mates
Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe
who took the bronze but amazingly
they fell in the downhill yesterday
and had to recover, refocus
and they did admit it had been
a nervous 24 hours coming into this
It's definitely been
an emotional 24 hours.
Lots of crying happening.
Today, they were good
Yesterday, we just had a little bit
too much speed, unfortunately.
And we came in with 90 kilometres
an hour into the fourth gate
which isn't even the fastest part.
So, it was just unfortunate
that we fell and we then turned it
around, definitely, for today.
So, it will be a rest day
for the Alpine skiers tomorrow
but it will be the start
of the snowboarding event.
So another exciting day
expected on day three.
It's big smiles all round for
Ireland rugby fans today.
They are Six Nations champions
with a game to spare.
It's after their win
in Dublin and England's
loss in Paris to France.
Let's have a look at
how it all went down.
Celebrations starting a week early.
Jacob Stockdale made the most of a
mistake from Scotland early on.
Before half time he had his second
try and by the end of the match
Ireland were feeling fine.
But they didn't know at this point,
what was going to happen
in the match in Paris.
England needed four
tries against France
to keep up with Ireland.
But it didn't look like they were
going to come close at all.
We were beaten at the breakdown, we
We were beaten at the breakdown, we
gave away 16 penalties which is far
too many and when we got momentum,
we didn't converted two points and
they did. It seems like a long way
away but it's not. You go through
these periods as a team. We're going
through a difficult period but we
will get through it.
Next week England are taking
on Ireland at home at Twickenham.
the Six Nations Champions will be
looking for a grand slam
which is when one side wins every
game in the competition.
And England will be hoping to redeem
themselves and maybe ruin the party
for them just a little bit.
We'd love to hear
from you about this one.
If you're an Ireland fan -
how are you celebrating?
And if you support one of the other
sides, how do you feel today?
Head online to let us know.
Next, someone who's having
a really special Mothers Day.
It's a rare western
lowland gorilla with her new baby
who's thought to be a week old.
These animals are critically
endangered with only
100,000 of them left in the wild.
Pictures like these,
captured taken at a National Park
in Congo, central Africa,
are really rare.
Well, we asked you to tell us
about the the amazing women
in your life this Mother's Day.
Here's what some of you had to say.
Izzy in Orpington says she's
spending the day with her mum,
grandparents and dad and brother.
They're having a day at home.
Nelly says her family will be
celebrating Mum who she thinks cooks
the most amazing dinners or lunches.
And Lachlan's also celebrating
Mother's Day with his whole family.
He says his mum is really special
because she takes him
to places he's never been.
Brilliant messages. Still time to
send some online.
Robots that think for themselves,
sound futuristic but they're
are already here and the process
is called artificial intelligence.
Martin has more.
Meet the football playing robots.
They're not being operated
by remote control.
These techie sports stars
can make decisions for themselves.
Scientists at the University
of Texas have programmed the robots
to do use artificial intelligence
to have a good old kickabout.
These guys are in training
for a big contest.
The robot World Cup.
Like this one held
in Germany two years ago.
They are able to learn
from their mistakes and improve
their game each time they play.
Rather than turn taking,
everybody's moving at the same time.
If you take too long
about what to do when you're
about to pass the ball the opponents
can take the ball away from you.
I thought these guys
have got what it takes
to make it to the finals.
Once they learn to stay
on the feet, that is.
That's it for now.
