Hi, I'm Martin with your Friday
afternoon news update.
And we're kicking off with some pop
news, because Sigrid has been named
as the BBC Music "Sound of 2018".
And how's this for a reaction?
Sigrid, you are the winner!
How do I describe that?
It means a lot.
Awww - she cried!
Sigrid first hit the UK charts last
year, and her latest track
"Strangers" has been getting a lot
of love on Radio 1.
The prize is voted for by music
critcs, DJs and former winners
and often predicts artists who go
on to big success.
The Norwegian pop singer
is the second youngest ever to win
the award after Adele.
Next, the NHS - it's one
of the most recognisable logos.
It stands for the National Health
Service and it's where you go
if you're injured or feeling unwell.
But at the moment, some
patients are having to wait
longer to be looked after.
Ricky's been finding out why.
Everybody in the UK has access
to NHS doctors and hospitals.
You've probably used it
without even realising.
And whenever you need to visit
the doctor or a hospital any
treatment you get is free.
That's because it's paid
for by the taxes that adults
pay to the Government.
But right now doctors
and hospitals are very busy.
There aren't enough hospital beds
and that means patients might have
to wait a bit longer to be treated.
So why is this happening now?
Winter is always a hard time
for hospitals because more people
get the flu and other viruses.
But health bosses say it is getting
harder and harder to do everything
with the money they are given
by the Government.
So, they are asking for more.
The Prime Minister, Theresa May,
who's in charge of the Government,
has apologised to patients but says
they're doing enough
to support the NHS.
The leader of the Labour Party,
Jeremy Corbyn disagrees and says
more money needs to be spent to help
doctors and nurses to do their jobs.
So what does this all mean
for you and how long would it take
to be seen by a doctor if you need
to go to hospital?
If you need to go to hospital,
you might have to wait
a while to start treatment.
But you would definitely get
the help you needed.
And if you had had a bad accident
or were very poorly,
you would be seen sooner.
Sport now - and something loads of
you were outraged about last year.
The moment when Northern Ireland
crashed out of their World Cup
play-off against Switzerland.
This is what some of you had
to say straight after
the match back in November.
The referee, not sure about that.
The referee is blind.
It should not have been a penalty.
It should never have been a penalty.
We could have done better if that
referee was not the referee.
Well, the referee who awarded that
controversial penalty has
admitted, he made a mistake.
And now he's been told
that he will not be used
as a ref at the World Cup
this summer in Russia.
But is that a fair punishment?
We asked some fans for their views.
I do think it's fair,
that the referee won't be used,
as he made a mistake.
And now Northern Ireland
are being punished.
I'm glad the ref admitted
his mistake, but here
in Northern Ireland
we are left devastated.
Northern Ireland should be given
a re-match because it was
the referee's mistake.
The referee ruined our chances
by calling a penalty.
Everybody makes mistakes.
It is not fair on our country.
The referee should not
have given a penalty,
he was absolutely in the wrong.
Finally, keeping fit and healthy
is important for all of us -
even if we might not always
feel like it.
And it tuns out penguins can need
a bit of encouragement too.
This video shows a keeper
at Milwalkie Zoo in the US
using tiny fish as treats
to encourage the penguin pals to get
onto the scales to be weighed.
Now Penguins love a bit of fish,
so in all the excitment they all
end up on the scales at once!
And this wee one clearly thinks
he deserves a few extra snacks.
Well, it is Friday after all.
And that's your lot!
Have a cracking Friday evening.
Newsround's back in the morning.
