Afternoon all, it's Ayshah

here with what's going

0:00:140:00:16

on in the world this Tuesday.

0:00:160:00:17

First, it's happened again.

0:00:170:00:20

Britain's Elise Christie

is out after an epic race.

0:00:200:00:23

You might remember she's already

lost out in speed skating on the 500

0:00:230:00:26

and 1,500 metre races.

0:00:260:00:27

So what went wrong this

time in the 1,000?

0:00:270:00:35

Away they go.

0:00:350:00:37

And Elise Christie goes down before

they reach the very first corner!

0:00:370:00:41

The race was restarted

after Elise Christie fell early on.

0:00:410:00:45

Away they go.

0:00:450:00:48

Then she had a terrible start.

0:00:480:00:51

It looked like she was barged

and nearly fell over twice.

0:00:510:00:53

Just about manages

to stay on her feet!

0:00:530:00:57

Through all that she managed to get

second place and thought she had

0:00:570:01:00

a spot in the quarterfinals.

0:01:000:01:01

But then...

0:01:010:01:04

I cannot believe they have

awarded her a yellow card.

0:01:040:01:07

Disqualified, game over.

0:01:070:01:09

Elise Christie will not go

through to the next round.

0:01:090:01:12

She may be out, but she still found

time to give a shout out to you.

0:01:120:01:17

I would just like to thank all

the kids that have sent me messages.

0:01:170:01:23

I really appreciated that kids have

sent messages saying

0:01:230:01:25

they are inspired by me.

0:01:250:01:26

You have no idea

what that means to me.

0:01:260:01:29

It is amazing that five-year-olds,

seven-year-olds, can

0:01:290:01:30

find me inspiring.

0:01:300:01:32

It brings tears

to my eyes, you know.

0:01:320:01:38

The question a lot of us

are asking is how could this

0:01:380:01:41

happen again to Elise?

0:01:410:01:42

Former speed skater Jon Eley's

here with us to talk it through.

0:01:420:01:50

That decision, she got disqualified,

was it the right decision?

She was

0:01:520:01:57

involved in two incidents and that

combined Gayford the yellow card. It

0:01:570:02:01

was tough to see but I can see where

the referee was going with that

0:02:010:02:06

second collision. So there was a

penalty.

Just so unfortunate. She

0:02:060:02:11

looks like she was in pain.

What is

like to watch are going through

0:02:110:02:17

this? It is difficult but I know

that she wanted to go out and give

0:02:170:02:20

it her best it was not the result

she wanted today but she gave it her

0:02:200:02:24

best. And as she said she was

inspired by messages of support.

And

0:02:240:02:31

she said that she's going to do it

again.

She was crazy! She just wants

0:02:310:02:36

to keep on inspiring people because

people have been inspired by the way

0:02:360:02:40

she has stuck to her goals.

Thank

you very much that.

0:02:400:02:43

Next, to Wigan's fans have been

celebrating all day thanks

0:02:430:02:45

to their shock win in the FA Cup.

The league one team ended

0:02:450:02:50

Manchester City's hopes

of the trophy with a one-nil win.

0:02:500:02:52

We spoke to some kids who have been

training with Wigan Athletics

0:02:520:02:55

Community Group today.

0:02:550:02:56

Here's what they had to say.

0:02:560:03:02

We beat a Premier League side again.

0:03:020:03:04

And we have beaten three

Premier League teams in this FA Cup.

0:03:040:03:07

I thought and my whole

family thought that my

0:03:070:03:09

team were going to win.

0:03:090:03:13

I was really happy because they

are top of the league

0:03:130:03:18

and if we beat them,

we have to play Southampton.

0:03:180:03:22

And if we win Southampton

we go to Wembley.

0:03:220:03:27

When you look at the Premier League

table now, City at the top,

0:03:270:03:35

but we have beaten a fourth

Premier League team and if we beat

0:03:440:03:46

Southampton that is five

Premier League teams

0:03:460:03:48

and a Premier League team

in the semis and we will be

0:03:480:03:51

on in the final and we will win

the cup again.

0:03:510:03:53

# Will Grigg's on fire!

0:03:530:03:54

# Your defence is terrifying!

0:03:540:03:56

# Na na na na na na na!

0:03:560:04:03

If you're a fried chicken

fan then listen up,

0:04:030:04:05

and you might not be happy!

0:04:050:04:13

More than half of the Kentucky Fried

Chicken restaurants in the UK

0:04:130:04:16

are Kentucky Fried Closed

at the moment.

0:04:160:04:18

And the reason?

0:04:180:04:19

They've run out of Chicken!

0:04:190:04:20

KFC say they were let down

by the people who supply thier

0:04:200:04:23

chicken and that they hope to be up

and frying again soon.

0:04:230:04:26

I hope so, I'm feeling

a bit peckish!

0:04:260:04:28

Let's have a look at this very

messy carnival in Greece.

0:04:280:04:30

People in the town of Galaxidi

gathered to throw coloured

0:04:300:04:33

flour at each other.

0:04:330:04:34

They dress in protective gear

and let the flour war begin.

0:04:340:04:37

They do it every year

to celebrate the start

0:04:370:04:39

of the Orthodox Christian

holiday of Lent.

0:04:390:04:43

But I wouldn't fancy

the clean up afterwards!

0:04:430:04:51

Thats all from me.

0:04:540:04:55

Ricky will be back tomorrow

morning with loads more.

0:04:550:04:57

Bye.
