Hello, I'm Hayley,
and welcome back to Newsround.
A record breaking day for Team GB!
We hear from will.i.am
about his new book.
We meet the pandas who
have been on the move.
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 fourth.
For the first time ever,
Great Britain has two medal winners
on the same podium at the Winter
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 I'd skied the best
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.
But 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.
He says he's devastated but also
very proud of himself.
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 hopes to make the one
thousand metre heats on Tuesday.
Fingers crossed, Elise!
Well, we'd like your congratulations
messages for the athletes
who have won a medal.
Head to Newsround online
where you can tell us what you think
of their achievements.
Many people across the UK felt
an earthquake which shuddered
across England and Wales yesterday.
It had a magnitude of 4.4,
so only a small one.
Nobody was hurt and there was no
damage - but people reported feeling
movement in places as far apart
as London, Cornwall and Cumbria.
It's thought the centre
was close to Swansea.
Well, we want to know
if you felt it.
Get in touch with Newsround online
and let us know what it was like.
Finally football -
and there was plenty of action
on show in the FA Cup competition.
Manchester United made it
through to the quarterfinals
after beating Huddersfield 2-0.
Romelu Lakaku scored both goals.
Southampton and Brighton are also
through to the quarterfinals,
after wins over West Brom
and Coventry, respectively.
But Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea
will need to play again
after a goalless draw.
Next up, he's a musician, record
producer, and a judge on The Voice -
but now will.i.am is adding author
to the list!
The superstar has created a new book
where wizards are real and robots
from the future have arrived.
Newsround sent its own virtual
bot to find out more.
Brian David Johnson
is the book dude.
He has, like, lots of
books so he gave me one
of his books and I'm like,
"Yo, one day I'm
going to do a book."
My mind was really inspired
and I envisioned this wizarding
robot world and I called Brian.
I called him and I said,
"Check this out!
What do you think about this
idea, Mr Book Man?"
And then we collaborated.
We started by creating this world
because with Will's imagination
it is so big and we really just took
time to make the world larger
and make it real and plausible
because everything is based on real
technology and all of the spells
and all the wizards are based
on quantum physics and science.
What is so special about Ada
in the book is Ada in real life.
There are a lot of Adas out
there and what they are doing
is they are going against the odds,
they are going against culture.
Culture is telling them
they should be models,
they should be a celebrity that does
nothing, "I'm just famous."
The Adas out there in the world
are going against the grain.
I am going to do the not-so-cool
thing and later on you're
going to know it is a cool thing.
And the cool thing she did
was build an amazing robot.
I'm a good wizard, bro.
I'm a robot.
From the beginning it has always
been the wizard and the robot.
Check us out.
I am definitely a wizard.
Two pandas called Snowfall and Snow
have arrived in Finland
after a long flight from China.
On board their plane,
they had the best flight service,
with a vet, a keeper and the Finish
embassador to look after them.
Their on flight meal was -
of course - loads of bamboo.
They're now settling into a luxury
pad in their new home.
Have a great Sunday!
See you in a couple of hours.
Thanks for watching, guys -
see you back here after 2pm.
