Good morning, I'm Ayshah with Friday's stories.
First to the US, where there's been a big rise in people trying
to cross over to Canada, the country next door.
There's so many people trying to get across that there's now
a special camp for them.
So what's going on?
Hundreds of people carrying all their belongings wait to cross
the border in the hope of a new life in Canada.
Canada is really, really beautiful, and the people are beautiful.
They help each other.
They've come from lots of different countries, but most of these
migrants are from Haiti, in the Caribbean.
A big earthquake hit the country in 2010 and many
people escaped to the US - but now they're not sure
whether they'll be allowed to stay in America.
That's because President Donald Trump has promised to crack down
on people from other countries who do not have permission
to live in the US.
But for those making the journey, there's no guarantee they'll be
allowed to stay in Canada either.
People hope a lot that things will be better for them
and there will be, something will happen that will allow them to stay
here, but it's a very long and very tiring process,
and the risk of being sent back to their country is real here, too.
And Canada is struggling to cope with its new arrivals.
The city of Montreal has had to turn its Olympic Stadium
into a temporary shelter, and the Canadian military has
started building a camp for people to stay in.
For those people queuing to get into the country,
it's the start of a difficult journey towards starting
another new life.
In the athletics last night, the big event was the men's 200m final.
The winner was Ramil Guliyev from Turkey.
He beat the 400m champion and favourite Wayde van Niekerk,
as well as Isaac Makwala, who had to run the heats by himself
after he had a suspected tummy bug!
Britiain's Dina Asher Smith is into tonight's women's 200m final
after running her season's best of 22.73 to finish second.
And one man who's proven himself to be one of Britain's greatest ever
athletes is Sir Mo Farah.
Tomorrow he'll run his last race on the track.
Let's take a look back at his amazing career.
Mo Farah celebrating a win has become a familiar sight,
and he's hoping for yet another at 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 5000m
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 Mobot.
Mo took the double again at Rio, and another gold in last week's
10,000m 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 5000m.
Next up, to the man with a really strange job...
Wesley is paid to do this for a living.
He looks after the lightbulbs on Blackpool Tower -
he dangles high up and replaces any bulbs that stop working.
And he doesn't have long to go - the Tower needs to be ready before
the Blackpool Illuminations switch-on, which is
on 1st September.
Tom Daley look out - there's some new diving
superstars in town.
This is the Saracens rugby team practicing passing.
Just look at that skill!
They're out in the Bahamas in the Caribbean, and training
really hard, I see...
Have a look at these cute penguins.
The nine Magellanic penguins waddled their way to freedom
on the coast of Argentina in South America.
The little creatures were being cared for
because they were poorly, but now they're back to full health.
Just look at them charge towards the sea!
Join me in half-an-hour with loads more stories to pack your Friday
with, including the large object that's unexpectedly washed
up on a Norfolk beach.
I love...The Next Step!
It is amazing.
