It's a great Mothers Day

for this rare gorilla.

0:00:060:00:11

Plus the footie-mad robots

who learn as they play.

0:00:110:00:19

First, at the Paralympic Winter

Olympics in PyeongChang

0:00:240:00:27

the medals keep coming.

0:00:270:00:30

Paralympics GB picked up silver

and bronze on day two of the games.

0:00:300:00:34

The BBC's Kate Grey is there.

0:00:340:00:36

Hello, Newsround.

0:00:360:00:38

It's been another brilliant

day for Paralympics GB

0:00:380:00:40

here in Pyeongchang.

0:00:400:00:43

Two medals to add to the silver

that they won yesterday

0:00:430:00:46

and it was Millie Knight who won

that silver medal yesterday that has

0:00:460:00:49

won another silver today

with her guide Brett Wild.

0:00:490:00:52

It's been quite emotional.

0:00:520:00:55

Even on the podium yesterday,

it was quite hard not

0:00:550:00:57

to tear up a little bit.

0:00:570:01:00

Yeah, it's been a struggle to get

here and I can't believe this

0:01:000:01:03

Hello, Newsround.

0:01:030:01:11

is what is hanging round our neck.

0:01:130:01:15

Absolutely.

0:01:150:01:16

Those silver medals

are quite special.

0:01:160:01:17

Brett, your first Paralympic Games.

0:01:170:01:18

This is a pretty good way to go.

0:01:180:01:20

Yes.

0:01:200:01:21

It's unbelievable.

0:01:210:01:22

It's such an honour just to be here.

0:01:220:01:24

To come away now, two races, two

medals, it's absolutely fantastic.

0:01:240:01:27

And they beat their team-mates

Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe

0:01:270:01:29

who took the bronze but amazingly

they fell in the downhill yesterday

0:01:290:01:32

and had to recover, refocus

and they did admit it had been

0:01:320:01:35

a nervous 24 hours coming into this

Super-G.

0:01:350:01:37

It's definitely been

an emotional 24 hours.

0:01:370:01:39

Lots of crying happening.

0:01:390:01:40

Today, they were good

tears, thankfully.

0:01:400:01:42

Yesterday, we just had a little bit

too much speed, unfortunately.

0:01:420:01:49

And we came in with 90 kilometres

an hour into the fourth gate

0:01:490:01:52

which isn't even the fastest part.

0:01:520:01:58

So, it was just unfortunate

that we fell and we then turned it

0:01:580:02:01

around, definitely, for today.

0:02:010:02:03

So, it will be a rest day

for the Alpine skiers tomorrow

0:02:030:02:06

but it will be the start

of the snowboarding event.

0:02:060:02:08

So another exciting day

expected on day three.

0:02:080:02:14

It's big smiles all round for

Ireland rugby fans today.

0:02:140:02:21

They are Six Nations champions

with a game to spare.

0:02:210:02:23

It's after their win

in Dublin and England's

0:02:230:02:25

loss in Paris to France.

0:02:250:02:26

Let's have a look at

how it all went down.

0:02:260:02:31

Celebrations starting a week early.

Jacob Stockdale made the most of a

0:02:310:02:37

mistake from Scotland early on.

Before half time he had his second

0:02:370:02:42

try and by the end of the match

Ireland were feeling fine.

0:02:420:02:55

But they didn't know at this point,

what was going to happen

0:02:560:02:59

in the match in Paris.

0:02:590:03:00

England needed four

tries against France

0:03:000:03:01

to keep up with Ireland.

0:03:010:03:04

But it didn't look like they were

going to come close at all.

0:03:040:03:09

We were beaten at the breakdown, we

gave

0:03:090:03:13

We were beaten at the breakdown, we

gave away 16 penalties which is far

0:03:130:03:14

too many and when we got momentum,

we didn't converted two points and

0:03:140:03:19

they did. It seems like a long way

away but it's not. You go through

0:03:190:03:26

these periods as a team. We're going

through a difficult period but we

0:03:260:03:29

will get through it.

0:03:290:03:34

Next week England are taking

on Ireland at home at Twickenham.

0:03:340:03:37

the Six Nations Champions will be

looking for a grand slam

0:03:370:03:40

which is when one side wins every

game in the competition.

0:03:400:03:42

And England will be hoping to redeem

themselves and maybe ruin the party

0:03:420:03:46

for them just a little bit.

0:03:460:03:48

We'd love to hear

from you about this one.

0:03:480:03:50

If you're an Ireland fan -

how are you celebrating?

0:03:500:03:53

And if you support one of the other

sides, how do you feel today?

0:03:530:03:56

Head online to let us know.

0:03:560:04:00

Next, someone who's having

a really special Mothers Day.

0:04:000:04:03

It's a rare western

lowland gorilla with her new baby

0:04:030:04:06

who's thought to be a week old.

0:04:060:04:08

These animals are critically

endangered with only

0:04:080:04:10

100,000 of them left in the wild.

0:04:100:04:14

Pictures like these,

captured taken at a National Park

0:04:140:04:16

in Congo, central Africa,

are really rare.

0:04:160:04:24

Well, we asked you to tell us

about the the amazing women

0:04:260:04:29

in your life this Mother's Day.

0:04:290:04:31

Here's what some of you had to say.

0:04:310:04:33

Izzy in Orpington says she's

spending the day with her mum,

0:04:330:04:35

grandparents and dad and brother.

0:04:350:04:36

They're having a day at home.

0:04:360:04:38

Nelly says her family will be

celebrating Mum who she thinks cooks

0:04:380:04:41

the most amazing dinners or lunches.

0:04:410:04:42

And Lachlan's also celebrating

Mother's Day with his whole family.

0:04:420:04:46

He says his mum is really special

because she takes him

0:04:460:04:49

to places he's never been.

0:04:490:04:56

Brilliant messages. Still time to

send some online.

0:04:570:05:02

Robots that think for themselves,

0:05:020:05:03

sound futuristic but they're

are already here and the process

0:05:030:05:06

is called artificial intelligence.

0:05:060:05:07

Martin has more.

0:05:070:05:10

Meet the football playing robots.

0:05:100:05:11

They're not being operated

by remote control.

0:05:110:05:14

These techie sports stars

can make decisions for themselves.

0:05:140:05:19

Scientists at the University

of Texas have programmed the robots

0:05:190:05:25

to do use artificial intelligence

to have a good old kickabout.

0:05:250:05:27

These guys are in training

for a big contest.

0:05:270:05:29

The robot World Cup.

0:05:290:05:32

Like this one held

in Germany two years ago.

0:05:320:05:38

They are able to learn

from their mistakes and improve

0:05:380:05:42

their game each time they play.

0:05:420:05:44

Rather than turn taking,

everybody's moving at the same time.

0:05:440:05:47

If you take too long

about what to do when you're

0:05:470:05:49

about to pass the ball the opponents

can take the ball away from you.

0:05:490:05:53

I thought these guys

have got what it takes

0:05:530:05:55

to make it to the finals.

0:05:550:05:56

Once they learn to stay

on the feet, that is.

0:05:560:05:59

That's it for now.
