Hello, I'm Hayley,

and welcome back to Newsround.

0:00:030:00:06

A record breaking day for Team GB!

0:00:060:00:08

We hear from will.i.am

about his new book.

0:00:080:00:12

We meet the pandas who

have been on the move.

0:00:120:00:19

First to PyeongChang in South Korea,

where three British women helped

0:00:250:00:27

deliver Team GB's most successful

day at a Winter Olympics ever!

0:00:270:00:32

Here's what happened.

0:00:320:00:35

Let's start with the skeleton.

0:00:350:00:36

Lizzy Yarnold was in second place

but this amazing final

0:00:360:00:39

run was pretty perfect

and took her straight to the top

0:00:390:00:41

winning her a gold medal.

0:00:410:00:46

Lizzy also won in the last

games in 2014 in Sochi.

0:00:460:00:49

That makes her the first British

woman to successfully defend

0:00:490:00:51

a Winter Olympic title.

0:00:510:00:55

Lizzy's just amazing under pressure.

0:00:550:00:57

Look what she's done.

0:00:570:00:58

She said she would come and do this

for our country and she has.

0:00:580:01:03

Laura Deas was competing in the same

event and she got bronze.

0:01:030:01:07

She was delighted because she

thought she'd come fourth.

0:01:070:01:10

For the first time ever,

Great Britain has two medal winners

0:01:100:01:13

on the same podium at the Winter

Games.

0:01:130:01:16

Amazing.

0:01:160:01:18

And one more record for you.

0:01:180:01:20

It was the first time Great Britain

won three medals in one day

0:01:200:01:23

because earlier in the day,

19-year-old Izzy Atkin won bronze

0:01:230:01:26

in the ski slopestyle.

0:01:260:01:30

I was standing at the bottom

after my third and final run

0:01:300:01:32

and I know I'd skied the best

I could.

0:01:320:01:35

I was just waiting you know,

for those, what was it,

0:01:350:01:37

three or four girls to drop

and my heart was racing.

0:01:370:01:40

But, yes, I can't believe it.

0:01:400:01:43

Well done, guys.

0:01:430:01:45

But it wasn't all good news

for Team GB, though.

0:01:450:01:47

James Woods missed out on a medal

in the men's skiing slopestyle.

0:01:470:01:50

He was in bronze position but ended

up finishing fourth.

0:01:500:01:54

He says he's devastated but also

very proud of himself.

0:01:540:01:57

And we told you yesterday

about speed skater Elise Christie -

0:01:570:02:01

she crashed in her 1500 metre

semifinal just days

0:02:010:02:03

after crashing in the 500 metres.

0:02:030:02:07

She was taken to hospital and now

has her right foot in a special

0:02:070:02:11

boot to help it heal.

0:02:110:02:13

But Elise hopes to make the one

thousand metre heats on Tuesday.

0:02:130:02:16

Fingers crossed, Elise!

0:02:160:02:20

Well, we'd like your congratulations

messages for the athletes

0:02:200:02:22

who have won a medal.

0:02:220:02:24

Head to Newsround online

where you can tell us what you think

0:02:240:02:27

of their achievements.

0:02:270:02:29

Many people across the UK felt

an earthquake which shuddered

0:02:290:02:31

across England and Wales yesterday.

0:02:310:02:34

It had a magnitude of 4.4,

so only a small one.

0:02:340:02:39

Nobody was hurt and there was no

damage - but people reported feeling

0:02:390:02:42

movement in places as far apart

as London, Cornwall and Cumbria.

0:02:420:02:45

It's thought the centre

was close to Swansea.

0:02:450:02:51

Well, we want to know

if you felt it.

0:02:510:02:54

Get in touch with Newsround online

and let us know what it was like.

0:02:540:02:59

Finally football -

and there was plenty of action

0:02:590:03:01

on show in the FA Cup competition.

0:03:010:03:03

Manchester United made it

through to the quarterfinals

0:03:030:03:05

after beating Huddersfield 2-0.

0:03:050:03:08

Romelu Lakaku scored both goals.

0:03:080:03:12

Southampton and Brighton are also

through to the quarterfinals,

0:03:120:03:15

after wins over West Brom

and Coventry, respectively.

0:03:150:03:18

But Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea

will need to play again

0:03:180:03:21

after a goalless draw.

0:03:210:03:23

Next up, he's a musician, record

producer, and a judge on The Voice -

0:03:230:03:27

but now will.i.am is adding author

to the list!

0:03:270:03:31

The superstar has created a new book

where wizards are real and robots

0:03:310:03:34

from the future have arrived.

0:03:340:03:35

Newsround sent its own virtual

bot to find out more.

0:03:350:03:42

Brian David Johnson

is the book dude.

0:03:460:03:48

He has, like, lots of

books so he gave me one

0:03:480:03:51

of his books and I'm like,

"Yo, one day I'm

0:03:510:03:53

going to do a book."

0:03:530:03:54

My mind was really inspired

and I envisioned this wizarding

0:03:540:03:57

robot world and I called Brian.

0:03:570:04:02

I called him and I said,

"Check this out!

0:04:020:04:04

What do you think about this

idea, Mr Book Man?"

0:04:040:04:07

And then we collaborated.

0:04:070:04:10

We started by creating this world

because with Will's imagination

0:04:110:04:14

it is so big and we really just took

time to make the world larger

0:04:140:04:18

and make it real and plausible

because everything is based on real

0:04:180:04:21

technology and all of the spells

and all the wizards are based

0:04:210:04:24

on quantum physics and science.

0:04:240:04:27

What is so special about Ada

in the book is Ada in real life.

0:04:310:04:35

There are a lot of Adas out

there and what they are doing

0:04:350:04:38

is they are going against the odds,

they are going against culture.

0:04:380:04:43

Culture is telling them

they should be models,

0:04:430:04:46

they should be a celebrity that does

nothing, "I'm just famous."

0:04:460:04:53

The Adas out there in the world

are going against the grain.

0:04:530:04:56

I am going to do the not-so-cool

thing and later on you're

0:04:560:04:59

going to know it is a cool thing.

0:04:590:05:01

And the cool thing she did

was build an amazing robot.

0:05:010:05:04

I'm a good wizard, bro.

0:05:080:05:11

I'm a robot.

0:05:110:05:12

From the beginning it has always

been the wizard and the robot.

0:05:120:05:15

Of course.

0:05:190:05:21

Check us out.

0:05:210:05:27

I am definitely a wizard.

0:05:270:05:29

Two pandas called Snowfall and Snow

have arrived in Finland

0:05:290:05:32

after a long flight from China.

0:05:320:05:34

On board their plane,

they had the best flight service,

0:05:340:05:36

with a vet, a keeper and the Finish

embassador to look after them.

0:05:360:05:39

Their on flight meal was -

of course - loads of bamboo.

0:05:390:05:42

They're now settling into a luxury

pad in their new home.

0:05:420:05:45

Have a great Sunday!

0:05:450:05:46

See you in a couple of hours.

0:05:460:05:47

Thanks for watching, guys -

see you back here after 2pm.

0:05:470:05:52
