Hi guys, Ricky here with your big stories this Friday.
And, Jo Konta waves goodbye to Wimbeldon.
First up to Wimbledon - and Britain's number one
Johanna Konta is out of the competition.
Ayshah's in London now to tell us what happened.
Hi, Ricky. Yes, Jo Konta was on that Centre Court yesterday and went
further than any other British female for almost 40 years and she
was the favourite in that match against Venus Williams, but
unfortunately it wasn't meant to be. Here is what happened.
Hopes were sky-high for Johanna Konta but this was the moment her
She was playing against American Venus
Williams who has won this competition five times in the past,
so it was never going to be an easy match.
Venus's powerful serve and years of experience performing at
the top level proved too much for Konta.
She lost the first set and after that never managed
That is the first blow to Venus Williams.
All the credit has to go to Venus and the way she
She really just dictated the match from
the very beginning until the very end.
So I had very few chances to get a good foothold in the match,
and again when I did have those chances she did very well to take
Although she didn't win she's proved she is among the world's best
and we're pretty sure this won't be the last we see of Johanna Konta.
So, disappointment but there's plenty more
action here at Wimbledon - later today is the men's
semi-finals - and I'll be right back
Yes, keep watching Johanna Konta, great things to come.
Next up, to kids at a school in London that
has a new playground, that you can eat!
As part of an eco-project and to encourage healthy eating,
the school has created a vegetable garden that the kids look
Here's what some pupils there think about it.
Usually I used to like eat KFC and all that.
And then now that I joined this gardening team I'm starting to
Some of us, we live in flats or tower blocks and
things like that so it's a great opportunity
for us just to learn, so
when we are later on in life we will know
how to do it and then we will
be like thank you, I'm so glad we had this
gardening in school, I
really did appreciate it, it really did help me.
It makes me want to have more fresh and organic food
than the normal processed, and it's a chance for you to try out
Instead of always buying fruits and stuff you
can plant them and then you get to take them and even yourself.
This gardening experience has helped both of us and our families so it's
really nice and other people who don't get this opportunity should
have this. This is really good. This is one of the best things you can
do. Now, growing things
at school isn't unusual - and we want to hear
from you about what you like growing at school or at home -
plants, vegetables or just flowers? And do you think growing healthy
food is a good idea? Next up, she's big,
blue and a bit boney. The Natural History Museum in London
has a new star resident. DP, you might have spotted him on a
school trip, the diplodocus has been the rock star of the Natural History
Museum for nearly 40 years. -- Dippy. But now it's out with the old
and in with the blue. Meet Hope, the balaenoptera musculus, better known
as a blue whale, the largest animal on Earth, weighing up to 200 tonnes,
almost 30 African elements and measuring in at a lengthy 30 metres,
or two double-decker buses if you prefer. The lower jawbone is the
largest single bone to be grown by any organism on the planet. And they
can live to well over 100 years, that's a whaley long time. They were
hunted almost to extinction in the 1900 but were also one of the first
species humans decided to save, so by introducing Hope the museum wants
visitors to think more about protecting animals and not just
their history. Look at the size of this space, we wanted something
large and impressive and Hope fills that for us and she will inspire
people and looks gorgeous. It's taken the team months to put
together Hope's 221 bones and had to use special technologies like a 3D
printers and work with teams of engineers and conservationists. But,
don't worry if you missed Dippy, he is set for his first UK tour to
visit the fans early next year. It's the Royal International
Air Tattoo this weekend And take a look at this -
this is what it's like to fly inside one of the famous
Red Arrows planes. They have been getting some practice
in ahead of their big show. That's all from me,
Newsround's back at 4:20pm. There's something fishy going
on in the O'Brien pirate barbecue in Little Roy next, and your Fave At
Five today is Millie Inbetween. Yes, Reecey-pips, well done,
cocker. Thanks, man.
