Hi, I'm Ricky,

and this is Newsround.

0:00:050:00:06

Your top stories this morning...

0:00:060:00:09

Stephen Hawking, one

of the world's most

0:00:090:00:11

famous scientists, has died.

0:00:110:00:13

A spy mystery involving

Russia and the UK.

0:00:130:00:18

And we take a look at

the Fantastic Beasts sequel.

0:00:180:00:26

First, one of the world's

most famous scientists,

0:00:320:00:34

Professor Stephen Hawking, has died.

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 -

0:00:430:00:46

even as a child.

0:00:460:00:48

He went on to become one of the most

famous scientists of all time,

0:00:480:00:51

after studying physics at Oxford

University.

0:00:510:00:56

When he was 21, he was told he had

motor neurone disease.

0:00:560:00:59

It meant he had to use

a wheelchair and had to talk

0:00:590:01:02

through a special computer.

0:01:020:01:05

But he lived for 50 years longer

than doctors expected and went

0:01:050:01:09

on to develop amazing theories that

changed the way the world thinks

0:01:090:01:12

about space, stars and the universe.

0:01:120:01:18

I do not have much positive to say

about motor neurone disease, but it

0:01:180:01:24

taught me not to pity myself and to

get on with what I still could do.

0:01:240:01:28

I am happier now than before

I developed the condition.

0:01:280:01:32

His most famous book,

A Brief History of Time, sold more

0:01:320:01:35

than 10 million copies

around the world.

0:01:350:01:39

A film was made about his life

in 2014, and the actor

0:01:390:01:43

who played him, Eddie Redmayne,

won an Oscar for his performance.

0:01:430:01:48

Professor Hawking even

appeared in The Simpsons.

0:01:480:01:54

His family say he was a great

scientist who was brilliant,

0:01:540:01:56

very funny and inspired people

across the world.

0:01:560:01:58

He was 76.

0:01:580:02:03

Russia has failed to explain

if it had anything to do

0:02:030:02:06

with the poisoning of a spy

in the UK.

0:02:060:02:11

Theresa May had given them

a deadline of midnight last night.

0:02:110:02:15

It's not yet known exactly

what the UK will do next.

0:02:150:02:18

Ayshah has more on this.

0:02:180:02:20

This is Sergei Skripal.

0:02:200:02:24

He's from Russia and was jailed

there more than ten years

0:02:240:02:26

ago for being a spy.

0:02:260:02:29

But he was released and now lives

here in the UK, in Salisbury.

0:02:290:02:33

Just over a week ago, he was found

on a bench in the city centre,

0:02:330:02:37

along with his 33-year-old daughter

Yulia.

0:02:370:02:39

They were both very poorly.

0:02:390:02:42

It's thought they'd been

poisoned deliberately.

0:02:420:02:49

It is also thought a policeman

was affected by the poison

0:02:490:02:52

after going to help find

out what happened.

0:02:520:02:54

He's in hospital too.

0:02:540:02:56

Skripal spied on Russia,

where he's from, for Great Britain.

0:02:560:02:59

And that's why many people

think he has been hurt.

0:02:590:03:01

The British Prime Minister

says the poison used

0:03:010:03:03

to attack him was made in Russia.

0:03:030:03:07

The Government has concluded

that it is highly likely that Russia

0:03:070:03:09

was responsible for the act

against Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

0:03:090:03:14

But a member of the Russian

government says that's rubbish.

0:03:140:03:18

Skripal and his daughter had been

to a restaurant and a pub that day.

0:03:180:03:22

People who had also been there have

been told to wash their clothes

0:03:220:03:26

they were wearing and any items

they had with them.

0:03:260:03:28

Health experts say the risk

to the public is low, though.

0:03:280:03:32

Emergency services and Army experts

are investigating and helping

0:03:320:03:35

to keep people safe.

0:03:350:03:40

Manchester United are out

of the Champions League.

0:03:400:03:43

They lost at home to Sevilla.

0:03:430:03:46

The away side took control

by scoring a crucial away goal

0:03:460:03:48

with less than 20 minutes left.

0:03:480:03:51

They went on to score

a second soon after.

0:03:510:03:55

The only realistic chance

of silverware left for United this

0:03:550:03:57

season is the FA Cup.

0:03:570:04:00

Jose Mourinho is the team's manager.

0:04:000:04:03

I sit in this chair

twice in the Champions

0:04:030:04:10

League and I knock out

Manchester United at

0:04:100:04:12

home, at Old Trafford.

0:04:120:04:13

I sit in this chair

with Porto, Man United out, I

0:04:130:04:16

sit in this chair with Real Madrid,

Man United out, so I do not think

0:04:160:04:19

it is something new for the club.

0:04:190:04:25

And, of course, being

Manchester United

0:04:250:04:31

manager and losing

a Champions League tie at home

0:04:310:04:33

is a delusion, obviously.

0:04:330:04:35

Great Britain has won a fifth medal

at the Paralympics in South Korea.

0:04:350:04:41

Menna Fitzpatrick -

who's partially sighted -

0:04:410:04:44

and her guide Jen Kehoe have

won their third medal

0:04:440:04:48

after finishing second

in the women's visually impaired

0:04:480:04:50

giant slalom in Pyeongchang.

0:04:500:04:52

They've already won silver

in the super combined and bronze

0:04:520:04:54

in the super-G race.

0:04:540:04:58

People are being asked

for their views

0:04:580:05:01

on the future of the one-penny

and two-pence coins.

0:05:010:05:04

So many people now use

their bank cards or spend

0:05:040:05:08

online that the Government

is considering whether or not to get

0:05:080:05:11

rid of some small change.

0:05:110:05:13

It'll also look at whether £50

notes should be kept.

0:05:130:05:19

The first official trailer for J K

Rowling's Fantastic Beasts sequel,

0:05:190:05:23

The Crimes of Grindlewald,

has just been released.

0:05:230:05:27

Warner Brothers have revealed

more details of the plot

0:05:270:05:30

and characters, and Harry

Potter fans are getting

0:05:300:05:32

very excited indeed.

0:05:320:05:34

Jude Law plays a young

Professor Dumbledore,

0:05:340:05:37

Eddie Redmayne returns

as Newt Scamander,

0:05:370:05:39

plus there are loads of

new fantastic beasts and characters.

0:05:390:05:42

It's released on 16th

November this year.

0:05:420:05:47

And you can head to Newsround

online for loads more

0:05:470:05:50

details on that new film.

0:05:500:05:51

Plus check out the hotel

where the beds are designed to be

0:05:510:05:54

just like those astronauts sleep

in in space.

0:05:540:05:57

That's it from us.

0:05:570:05:58

Hayley's back this afternoon.
