Hi, I'm Ricky,

and this is Newsround.

0:00:050:00:08

Stephen Hawking, one

of the world's most

0:00:080:00:10

famous scientists, has died.

0:00:100:00:14

A spy mystery involving

Russia and the UK.

0:00:140:00:18

And we take a look at

the Fantastic Beasts sequel.

0:00:180:00:25

First, one of the world's

most famous scientists,

0:00:320:00:34

Professor Stephen Hawking,

has died at the age of 76.

0:00:340:00:39

I've been looking back

at his incredible life.

0:00:390:00:43

Stephen Hawking was passionate

about science and the sky -

0:00:430:00:45

even as a child.

0:00:450:00:48

He went on to become one of the most

famous scientists of all time,

0:00:480:00:52

after studying physics at Oxford

University.

0:00:520:00:56

When he was 21, he was told he had

motor neurone disease.

0:00:560:01:00

It meant he had to use

a wheelchair and had to talk

0:01:000:01:03

through a special computer.

0:01:030:01:06

But he lived for 50 years longer

than doctors expected and went

0:01:060:01:10

on to develop amazing theories that

changed the way the world thinks

0:01:100:01:14

about space, stars and the universe.

0:01:140:01:19

I do not have much positive to say

about motor neurone disease, but it

0:01:190:01:26

taught me not to pity myself and to

get on with what I can still do.

0:01:260:01:30

I am happier now than before

I developed the condition.

0:01:300:01:33

His most famous book,

A Brief History of Time, sold more

0:01:330:01:36

than 10 million copies

around the world.

0:01:360:01:42

A film was made about his life

in 2014, and the actor

0:01:420:01:48

who played him, Eddie Redmayne,

won an Oscar for his performance.

0:01:480:01:52

Professor Hawking even

appeared in The Simpsons.

0:01:520:01:54

His family say he was a great

scientist who was brilliant,

0:01:540:01:57

very funny and inspired people

across the world.

0:01:570:02:00

He was 76.

0:02:000:02:06

Russia has failed to explain

if they had anything to do

0:02:060:02:08

with the poisoning of a spy

in the UK.

0:02:080:02:12

Theresa May had given them

a deadline of midnight last night.

0:02:120:02:16

It's not yet known exactly

what the UK will do next.

0:02:160:02:18

Ayshah has more on this.

0:02:180:02:22

This is Sergei Skripal.

0:02:220:02:25

He's from Russia and was jailed

there more than ten years

0:02:250:02:28

ago for being a spy.

0:02:280:02:31

But he was released and now lives

here in the UK, in Salisbury.

0:02:310:02:35

Just over a week ago, he was found

on a bench in the city centre,

0:02:350:02:39

along with his 33-year-old daughter

Yulia.

0:02:390:02:41

They were both very poorly.

0:02:410:02:47

It's thought they'd been

poisoned deliberately.

0:02:470:02:50

It is also thought a police man

was affected by the poison

0:02:500:02:53

after going to help find

out what happened.

0:02:530:02:54

He's in hospital too.

0:02:540:02:59

Skripal spied on Russia,

where he's from, for Great Britain.

0:02:590:03:00

And that's why many people

think he has been hurt.

0:03:000:03:03

The British Prime Minister

says the poison used

0:03:030:03:05

to attack him was made in Russia.

0:03:050:03:08

The Government has concluded

that it is highly likely that Russia

0:03:080:03:12

was responsible for the act

against Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

0:03:120:03:15

But a member of the Russian

government says that's rubbish.

0:03:150:03:20

Skripal and his daughter had been

to a restaurant and a pub that day.

0:03:200:03:24

People who had also been there have

been told to wash their clothes

0:03:240:03:27

they were wearing and any items

they had with them.

0:03:270:03:30

Health experts say the risk

to the public is low, though.

0:03:300:03:33

Emergency services and Army experts

are investigating and helping

0:03:330:03:36

to keep people safe.

0:03:360:03:41

Manchester United are out

of the Champions League.

0:03:410:03:44

They lost at home to Sevilla.

0:03:440:03:48

The away side took control

by scoring a crucial away goal

0:03:480:03:50

with less than 20 minutes left.

0:03:500:03:54

They went on to score

a second soon after.

0:03:540:03:57

The only realistic chance

of silverware left for United this

0:03:570:04:00

season is the FA Cup.

0:04:000:04:06

Great Britain has won a fifth medal

at the Paralympics in South Korea.

0:04:060:04:09

Menna Fitzpatrick -

who's partially sighted -

0:04:090:04:11

and her guide Jen Kehoe have

won their third medal

0:04:110:04:13

after finishing second

in the women's visually impaired

0:04:130:04:16

giant slalom in Pyeongchang.

0:04:160:04:19

They've already won silver

in the super combined and bronze

0:04:190:04:21

in the super-G race.

0:04:210:04:26
