Good morning, welcome
to Newsround HQ!
Coming your way this Tuesday...
Another medal for Great Britain
at the Paralympics.
We're staying cool this morning
with the tourists capturing this
ice sight in Argentina.
And find out why a cat could hold
the key to this year's World Cup.
Only on Newsround.
First, let's get the latest
sports results for you.
Manchester City are just two
games away from winning
the Premier League after they beat
Stoke 2-0 last night.
David Silva scored
just 10 minutes in.
He then went on to score his second
goal of the game and ninth
of the season in the second half.
The win means they can still take
the title against rivals
Manchester United next month.
And there's been a silver
medal for Great Britain
at the Paralympics in South Korea.
British skier Menna Fitzpatrick -
who is partially sighted -
and her guide, Jen Kehoe,
took second place in
the Super Combined event.
And in tennis, world number one
Roger Federer is favourite to win
a record sixth title
at Indian Wells.
He won his last match in less
than an hour to reach the last 16.
Novak Djokovic is already out.
Andy Murray and
Rafa Nadal are both injured.
In the women's, Venus has beaten
Serena in the latest
Williams sisters showdown.
Venus won in straight sets.
Over in Argentina, thousands
of tourists gathered to watch this
It's an ice bridge collapsing
in a national park in
the South American country.
It happens every couple of years
when water pressure builds up
under the ice, making it weak.
The last time it
happened was in 2016.
OK, history fans,
stick around for this -
we're heading to Liverpool
to see an ancient underground army,
kept hidden for thousands of years.
Martin's got this.
This is the Terracotta Army.
It was buried deep underground
secretly guarding the tomb
of China's first emperor for more
than 2,000 years,
until it was discovered by accident
as farmers dug the land.
The tomb belonged to Qin Shi Huang,
the founder of the Chinese empire,
who had many enemies.
He believed that these full-size
clay soldiers would protect him
in the next life after he died.
Now, they've been carefully brought
back to the surface and repaired
for everyone to see.
But you don't have to go all the way
to China to see them.
Some of them are right
here in Liverpool.
So these kids have been
to check them out.
How long did it take to make
the terracotta warriors?
We do not know how long it took
to make one warrior, but as you
can see, they are so detailed
and elaborate, I imagine
it would have taken quite some time
to make each one.
Each part of the body
was made separately,
so the legs and feet were made,
and they were solid clay.
Because they were so heavy, the base
of them had to be quite steady.
Who were the strongest warriors?
The warriors are all soldiers
who were ready to fight in battle,
but in another pit nearby
were figures that the emperor had
made to entertain him
in the afterlife, and in that pit
were acrobats and strongmen,
and the strongmen figures
had really big muscles,
so I imagine they were
meant to be very strong.
So, what do they make of the army?
I'm so amazed how big
the terracotta warriors are.
I like how they look
and they've got armour on,
they look really detailed.
When I imagined what they would look
like, I was not expecting them
to be a really big size.
I think it's actually really
impressive that they came from China
all the way to Liverpool
and that they are still in really
good shape and condition.
Thanks guys, now from hidden
armys to this super fun
And it's a wee bit different
than you might think...
Boys and girls, we're
in Krynica Zdroj in southern
Poland for Ski Splash!
Ski Splash is an event that takes
place in this town every year.
And as you can see,
it's a real hoot.
50 participants attempted to ski
or snowboard across a pool of very,
very cold water after riding
off a slope.
Wait a minute, that's a boat!
It combines some good
old sense of humour with fun
and sports competition.
The best part about it for me is,
the competitors dress up
in anything they like.
Not because it gets them points.
But simply because they can.
I know what my next hobby is!
You may remember Fiona the Hippo
who correctly guessed
the winners of the Super Bowl -
the American football competition -
earlier this year?
Well, now Russia has named a cat
as its official fortune-teller
for this summer's World Cup.
Achilles - yep, that's his name -
will have two bowls of food
representing either side.
Whichever he eats first will be his
favourite to win the game.
If you've got time before you head
to school, take a look at this
amazing dog at Newsround online -
where you can see why he stole
the show at Crufts over the weekend.
Plus, Kane tells us what life
is like with his adopted parents -
and how his brother is also adopted.
And this week's Big Question
is all about space.
Just how big is it?
We find out from a galaxy expert!
That's all for now
from the Newsround team.
Hayley's here for you
later this afternoon.
Enjoy your breakfast
and have a brilliant day at school.
See you soon!
