See you.

Good morning, I'm Ayshah with Friday's stories.

0:00:120:00:14

First to the US, where there's been a big rise in people trying

0:00:140:00:17

to cross over to Canada, the country next door.

0:00:170:00:23

There's so many people trying to get across that there's now

0:00:230:00:26

a special camp for them.

0:00:260:00:27

So what's going on?

0:00:270:00:28

Let's see.

0:00:280:00:30

Hundreds of people carrying all their belongings wait to cross

0:00:300:00:32

the border in the hope of a new life in Canada.

0:00:320:00:36

Canada is really, really beautiful, and the people are beautiful.

0:00:360:00:42

They help each other.

0:00:420:00:45

They've come from lots of different countries, but most of these

0:00:450:00:48

migrants are from Haiti, in the Caribbean.

0:00:480:00:51

A big earthquake hit the country in 2010 and many

0:00:510:00:54

people escaped to the US - but now they're not sure

0:00:540:00:57

whether they'll be allowed to stay in America.

0:00:570:01:01

That's because President Donald Trump has promised to crack down

0:01:010:01:04

on people from other countries who do not have permission

0:01:040:01:06

to live in the US.

0:01:060:01:10

But for those making the journey, there's no guarantee they'll be

0:01:100:01:12

allowed to stay in Canada either.

0:01:120:01:14

People hope a lot that things will be better for them

0:01:140:01:18

and there will be, something will happen that will allow them to stay

0:01:180:01:22

here, but it's a very long and very tiring process,

0:01:220:01:27

and the risk of being sent back to their country is real here, too.

0:01:270:01:31

And Canada is struggling to cope with its new arrivals.

0:01:310:01:35

The city of Montreal has had to turn its Olympic Stadium

0:01:350:01:39

into a temporary shelter, and the Canadian military has

0:01:390:01:41

started building a camp for people to stay in.

0:01:410:01:44

For those people queuing to get into the country,

0:01:440:01:48

it's the start of a difficult journey towards starting

0:01:480:01:51

another new life.

0:01:510:01:54

In the athletics last night, the big event was the men's 200m final.

0:01:540:01:57

The winner was Ramil Guliyev from Turkey.

0:01:570:02:01

He beat the 400m champion and favourite Wayde van Niekerk,

0:02:010:02:05

as well as Isaac Makwala, who had to run the heats by himself

0:02:050:02:09

after he had a suspected tummy bug!

0:02:090:02:13

Britiain's Dina Asher Smith is into tonight's women's 200m final

0:02:130:02:16

after running her season's best of 22.73 to finish second.

0:02:160:02:23

And one man who's proven himself to be one of Britain's greatest ever

0:02:230:02:26

athletes is Sir Mo Farah.

0:02:260:02:30

Tomorrow he'll run his last race on the track.

0:02:300:02:33

Let's take a look back at his amazing career.

0:02:330:02:36

Mo Farah celebrating a win has become a familiar sight,

0:02:360:02:39

and he's hoping for yet another at the 5000 metres on Saturday,

0:02:390:02:44

one of his last ever races before he retires.

0:02:440:02:49

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

0:02:490:02:53

Mo moved from Somalia in Africa to England

0:02:530:02:56

when he was only eight years old.

0:02:560:02:58

He barely knew a word of English, but it was here that he first

0:02:580:03:01

realised he could run - and fast!

0:03:010:03:04

From then on, there was no stopping him.

0:03:040:03:07

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

0:03:070:03:11

at the World Championships in South Korea.

0:03:110:03:15

Mo moved to the US and trained hard in some tough

0:03:150:03:18

conditions, but it paid off.

0:03:180:03:22

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

0:03:220:03:25

celebrating with his famous Mobot.

0:03:250:03:31

Mo took the double again at Rio, and another gold in last week's

0:03:310:03:35

10,000m sealed his place as one of the greatest British

0:03:350:03:38

athletes of all time.

0:03:380:03:39

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

0:03:390:03:43

because he will be switching over to marathon running instead.

0:03:430:03:46

But first he faces one of his last big challenges

0:03:460:03:49

on Saturday in the 5000m.

0:03:490:03:54

Next up, to the man with a really strange job...

0:03:540:03:57

Wesley is paid to do this for a living.

0:03:570:04:00

He looks after the lightbulbs on Blackpool Tower -

0:04:000:04:06

he dangles high up and replaces any bulbs that stop working.

0:04:060:04:08

And he doesn't have long to go - the Tower needs to be ready before

0:04:080:04:12

the Blackpool Illuminations switch-on, which is

0:04:120:04:13

on 1st September.

0:04:130:04:15

Tom Daley look out - there's some new diving

0:04:150:04:18

superstars in town.

0:04:180:04:19

This is the Saracens rugby team practicing passing.

0:04:190:04:23

Just look at that skill!

0:04:230:04:26

They're out in the Bahamas in the Caribbean, and training

0:04:260:04:29

really hard, I see...

0:04:290:04:32

Have a look at these cute penguins.

0:04:320:04:34

The nine Magellanic penguins waddled their way to freedom

0:04:340:04:36

on the coast of Argentina in South America.

0:04:360:04:38

The little creatures were being cared for

0:04:380:04:41

because they were poorly, but now they're back to full health.

0:04:410:04:43

Just look at them charge towards the sea!

0:04:430:04:49

Join me in half-an-hour with loads more stories to pack your Friday

0:04:490:04:52

with, including the large object that's unexpectedly washed

0:04:520:04:54

up on a Norfolk beach.

0:04:540:04:59

I love...The Next Step!

0:05:030:05:06

It is amazing.
