Hi, news fans, it's Ayshah here live this morning with all of these top

:00:00.:00:07.

Penguins waddling their way to freedom at sea.

:00:08.:00:15.

And the ginormous pipes trying to make it onto dry land.

:00:16.:00:17.

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

:00:18.:00:33.

The winner was Ramil Guliyev from Turkey.

:00:34.:00:36.

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

:00:37.:00:43.

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

:00:44.:00:45.

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

:00:46.:00:52.

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

:00:53.:00:55.

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

:00:56.:01:01.

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

:01:02.:01:04.

Mo Farah celebrating a win has become a familiar sight,

:01:05.:01:09.

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

:01:10.:01:12.

one of his last ever races before he retires.

:01:13.:01:16.

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

:01:17.:01:21.

Mo moved from Somalia in Africa to England

:01:22.:01:23.

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

:01:24.:01:30.

realised he could run - and fast!

:01:31.:01:32.

From then on, there was no stopping him.

:01:33.:01:36.

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

:01:37.:01:39.

at the World Championships in South Korea.

:01:40.:01:45.

Mo moved to the US and trained hard in some tough

:01:46.:01:47.

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

:01:48.:01:53.

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

:01:54.:02:02.

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

:02:03.:02:06.

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

:02:07.:02:10.

because he will be switching over to marathon running instead.

:02:11.:02:15.

But first he faces one of his last big challenges

:02:16.:02:18.

This is the Saracens rugby team practicing passing.

:02:19.:02:33.

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

:02:34.:02:39.

You might have seen some seaweed or a bit of wood wash up on a beach

:02:40.:02:48.

Two whopping great plastic pipes have washed up

:02:49.:02:53.

on beaches at Winterton and Sea Palling in Norfolk.

:02:54.:02:55.

The pipes are 450 metres long and came loose while being

:02:56.:02:59.

From the sea to the sky - the international balloon festival

:03:00.:03:08.

It'll take place over the next couple of days and is Europe's

:03:09.:03:12.

More than 130 balloons are there, but last night they had to cancel

:03:13.:03:16.

them all going into the air at the same time, because

:03:17.:03:19.

Let's just keep our fingers crossed.

:03:20.:03:24.

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

:03:25.:03:27.

to cross over to Canada, the country next door.

:03:28.:03:29.

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

:03:30.:03:33.

Hundreds of people, carrying all their belongings,

:03:34.:03:42.

wait to cross the border in the hope of a new life in Canada.

:03:43.:03:46.

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

:03:47.:03:49.

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

:03:50.:03:56.

migrants are from Haiti, in the Caribbean.

:03:57.:03:59.

A big earthquake hit the country in 2010 and many

:04:00.:04:04.

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

:04:05.:04:06.

whether they'll be allowed to stay in America.

:04:07.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:12.

on people from other countries who do not have permission

:04:13.:04:14.

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

:04:15.:04:20.

People hope a lot that things will be better

:04:21.:04:24.

for them and there will be, something will happen that

:04:25.:04:28.

will allow them to stay here, but it's a very long and very tiring

:04:29.:04:33.

process, and the risk of being sent back to their country

:04:34.:04:36.

And Canada is struggling to cope with its new arrivals.

:04:37.:04:41.

The city of Montreal has had to turn its Olympic Stadium

:04:42.:04:44.

into a temporary shelter, and the Canadian military has

:04:45.:04:46.

started building a camp for people to stay in.

:04:47.:04:52.

For those people queuing to get into the country,

:04:53.:04:55.

it's the start of a difficult journey towards starting a new life.

:04:56.:05:00.

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

:05:01.:05:07.

Wesley looks after the lightbulbs on Blackpool Tower.

:05:08.:05:09.

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

:05:10.:05:11.

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

:05:12.:05:15.

the Blackpool Illuminations switch-on, which is

:05:16.:05:16.

I've got to admit it is the one time of the year when my heart.

:05:17.:05:27.

Fluttering, it really does, because if that light doesn't work, it is

:05:28.:05:33.

like... It is drilling every day, you come out here, fantastic

:05:34.:05:38.

location, a lot of guys in this industry working places where you

:05:39.:05:39.

:05:40.:05:42.
