Good morning, welcome

to Newsround HQ!

0:00:040:00:06

I'm Ayshah.

0:00:060:00:07

Coming your way this Tuesday...

0:00:070:00:09

Another medal for Great Britain

at the Paralympics.

0:00:090:00:13

We're staying cool this morning

with the tourists capturing this

0:00:130:00:15

ice sight in Argentina.

0:00:150:00:18

And find out why a cat could hold

the key to this year's World Cup.

0:00:180:00:22

Only on Newsround.

0:00:220:00:29

First, let's get the latest

sports results for you.

0:00:330:00:36

Manchester City are just two

games away from winning

0:00:360:00:39

the Premier League after they beat

Stoke 2-0 last night.

0:00:390:00:41

David Silva scored

just 10 minutes in.

0:00:410:00:46

He then went on to score his second

goal of the game and ninth

0:00:460:00:49

of the season in the second half.

0:00:490:00:51

The win means they can still take

the title against rivals

0:00:510:00:54

Manchester United next month.

0:00:540:00:57

And there's been a silver

medal for Great Britain

0:00:570:00:59

at the Paralympics in South Korea.

0:00:590:01:01

British skier Menna Fitzpatrick -

who is partially sighted -

0:01:010:01:04

and her guide, Jen Kehoe,

took second place in

0:01:040:01:06

the Super Combined event.

0:01:060:01:10

And in tennis, world number one

Roger Federer is favourite to win

0:01:100:01:13

a record sixth title

at Indian Wells.

0:01:130:01:17

He won his last match in less

than an hour to reach the last 16.

0:01:170:01:20

Novak Djokovic is already out.

0:01:200:01:21

Andy Murray and

Rafa Nadal are both injured.

0:01:210:01:25

In the women's, Venus has beaten

Serena in the latest

0:01:250:01:27

Williams sisters showdown.

0:01:270:01:28

Venus won in straight sets.

0:01:280:01:34

Over in Argentina, thousands

of tourists gathered to watch this

0:01:340:01:36

extraordinary moment.

0:01:360:01:37

It's an ice bridge collapsing

in a national park in

0:01:370:01:39

the South American country.

0:01:390:01:41

It happens every couple of years

when water pressure builds up

0:01:410:01:43

under the ice, making it weak.

0:01:430:01:51

The last time it

happened was in 2016.

0:01:550:02:01

OK, history fans,

stick around for this -

0:02:010:02:03

we're heading to Liverpool

to see an ancient underground army,

0:02:030:02:06

kept hidden for thousands of years.

0:02:060:02:09

Martin's got this.

0:02:090:02:13

This is the Terracotta Army.

0:02:130:02:17

It was buried deep underground

secretly guarding the tomb

0:02:170:02:19

of China's first emperor for more

than 2,000 years,

0:02:190:02:22

until it was discovered by accident

as farmers dug the land.

0:02:220:02:28

The tomb belonged to Qin Shi Huang,

the founder of the Chinese empire,

0:02:280:02:31

who had many enemies.

0:02:310:02:35

He believed that these full-size

clay soldiers would protect him

0:02:350:02:38

in the next life after he died.

0:02:380:02:41

Now, they've been carefully brought

back to the surface and repaired

0:02:410:02:44

for everyone to see.

0:02:440:02:45

But you don't have to go all the way

to China to see them.

0:02:450:02:49

Some of them are right

here in Liverpool.

0:02:490:02:52

So these kids have been

to check them out.

0:02:520:02:54

How long did it take to make

the terracotta warriors?

0:02:540:03:00

We do not know how long it took

to make one warrior, but as you

0:03:000:03:04

can see, they are so detailed

and elaborate, I imagine

0:03:040:03:06

it would have taken quite some time

to make each one.

0:03:060:03:09

Each part of the body

was made separately,

0:03:090:03:11

so the legs and feet were made,

and they were solid clay.

0:03:110:03:14

Because they were so heavy, the base

of them had to be quite steady.

0:03:140:03:17

Who were the strongest warriors?

0:03:170:03:19

The warriors are all soldiers

who were ready to fight in battle,

0:03:190:03:22

but in another pit nearby

were figures that the emperor had

0:03:220:03:26

made to entertain him

in the afterlife, and in that pit

0:03:260:03:29

were acrobats and strongmen,

and the strongmen figures

0:03:290:03:31

had really big muscles,

so I imagine they were

0:03:310:03:33

meant to be very strong.

0:03:330:03:37

So, what do they make of the army?

0:03:370:03:40

I'm so amazed how big

the terracotta warriors are.

0:03:400:03:43

I like how they look

and they've got armour on,

0:03:430:03:45

they look really detailed.

0:03:450:03:48

When I imagined what they would look

like, I was not expecting them

0:03:480:03:51

to be a really big size.

0:03:510:03:53

I think it's actually really

impressive that they came from China

0:03:530:03:55

all the way to Liverpool

and that they are still in really

0:03:550:03:58

good shape and condition.

0:03:580:04:06

Thanks guys, now from hidden

armys to this super fun

0:04:060:04:09

wintry competition.

0:04:090:04:10

And it's a wee bit different

than you might think...

0:04:100:04:13

Boys and girls, we're

in Krynica Zdroj in southern

0:04:130:04:16

Poland for Ski Splash!

0:04:160:04:19

Ski Splash is an event that takes

place in this town every year.

0:04:190:04:23

And as you can see,

it's a real hoot.

0:04:230:04:26

50 participants attempted to ski

or snowboard across a pool of very,

0:04:260:04:29

very cold water after riding

off a slope.

0:04:290:04:34

Wait a minute, that's a boat!

0:04:340:04:39

It combines some good

old sense of humour with fun

0:04:390:04:41

and sports competition.

0:04:410:04:48

The best part about it for me is,

the competitors dress up

0:04:480:04:51

in anything they like.

0:04:510:04:52

Not because it gets them points.

0:04:520:04:54

But simply because they can.

0:04:540:04:55

I know what my next hobby is!

0:04:550:04:58

You may remember Fiona the Hippo

who correctly guessed

0:04:580:05:06

the winners of the Super Bowl -

the American football competition -

0:05:060:05:08

earlier this year?

0:05:080:05:09

Well, now Russia has named a cat

as its official fortune-teller

0:05:090:05:12

for this summer's World Cup.

0:05:120:05:13

Achilles - yep, that's his name -

will have two bowls of food

0:05:130:05:16

representing either side.

0:05:160:05:17

Whichever he eats first will be his

favourite to win the game.

0:05:170:05:22

If you've got time before you head

to school, take a look at this

0:05:220:05:26

amazing dog at Newsround online -

where you can see why he stole

0:05:260:05:30

the show at Crufts over the weekend.

0:05:300:05:34

Plus, Kane tells us what life

is like with his adopted parents -

0:05:340:05:38

and how his brother is also adopted.

0:05:380:05:39

And this week's Big Question

is all about space.

0:05:390:05:41

Just how big is it?

0:05:410:05:46

We find out from a galaxy expert!

0:05:460:05:47

That's all for now

from the Newsround team.

0:05:470:05:51

Hayley's here for you

later this afternoon.

0:05:510:05:55

Enjoy your breakfast

and have a brilliant day at school.

0:05:550:05:56

See you soon!
