Good morning, I'm Hayley
and I'm live with all
your news this morning.
First to Pyeongchang in South Korea,
where three British women helped
deliver Team GB's most successful
day at a Winter Olympics ever!
Here's what happened.
Let's start with the skeleton.
Lizzy Yarnold was in second place
but this amazing final
run was pretty perfect
and took her straight to the top
winning her a gold medal.
Lizzy also won in the last
games in 2014 in Sochi.
That makes her the first British
woman to successfully defend
a Winter Olympic title.
Lizzy's just amazing under pressure.
Look what she's done.
She said she would come and do this
for our country and she has.
Laura Deas was competing in the same
event and she got bronze.
She was delighted because she
thought she'd come forth.
For the first time ever,
Great Britain has two
medal winners on the same podium
at the Winter Games.
And one more record for you.
It was the first time
Great Britain won three
medals in one day because earlier in
the day, 19-year-old Izzy Atkin won
bronze in the ski slopestyle.
I was standing at the bottom after
my third and final run and I know 'd
skied the best I could.
I was just waiting
you know, for those,
what was it, three or four girls
to drop and my heart was racing.
But, yes, I can't believe it.
Well done, guys.
It wasn't all good news
for Team GB though.
James Woods missed out on a medal
in the men's skiing slopestyle.
He was in bronze position but ended
up finishing fourth.
And we told you yesterday
about speed skater Elise Christie,
she crashed in her 1500 metre
semifinal just days after
crashing in the 500 metres.
She was taken to hospital and now
has her right foot in a special
boot to help it heal.
But Elise says she's
determined to make the 1000
metre heats on Tuesday.
Fingers crossed Elise!
Many people across the UK felt
an earthquake which shuddered
across England and Wales yesterday.
It had a magnitude of 4.4,
which means it was only a small one.
Nobody was hurt and nothing
was damaged but people reported
feeling movement in places as far
apart as London,
Cornwall and Cumbria.
And there was plenty of action
on show in the FA Cup competition.
Manchester United made it
through to the quarter-finals
after beating Huddersfield 2-0.
Romelu Lukaku scored both goals.
Southampton and Brighton are also
through to the quarter-finals,
after wins over West Brom
and Coventry, respectively.
But Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea
will need to play again
after a goalless draw.
Thanks for watching.
I'm back around lunchtime.
See you then!
