Good morning. I'm Ricky and this is
OK, time for a quick
round-up of some of
today's sports stories.
The Winter Olympics are over.
Yesterday's closing ceremony had
and amazing light shows to mark
the end of two weeks of competition.
It was Team GB's best ever winter
Games with five medals.
Our athletes are expected
to arrive home later today.
Manchester City have won their first
trophy under manager Pep Guardiola.
They beat Arsenal 3-0
in the League Cup final at Wembley.
For Arsenal, the League Cup remains
the only domestic trophy manager
Arsene Wenger has not won
during his 21 years in charge.
In the Premier League,
Jesse Lingard headed the winner
for Manchester United as they beat
Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford.
The win takes United back
to second in the table.
Chelsea drop to fifth
after Tottenham's 1-0 victory
at Crystal Palace earlier
in the day.
Next to the inspiring story
of teenager Billy Monger.
Despite losing both of his legs
in an accident, he's never given up
on his dream of becoming
a racing driver.
I'm Billy Monger and I'm here today
to show you around by car
that is adapted so I can hopefully
race British F3 this year.
Last year Billy lost both
of his legs in a crash while racing.
Now the 18-year-old is back behind
the wheel of a single seater car.
So how does he do it?
12 years of my life I spent driving
a certain way and now someone has
just changed everything I learnt
to drive in a different way.
I'm getting used to it though.
Basically the adaptations are that
most of it is on the wheel now.
The most important pedal
is this side for me,
the left-hand side of the wheel.
I've got my fraught pedal.
That accelerates the car
and allows me to accelerate
in straight lines and round corners.
Every lap I do I'm learning
something new about whether it is
better to control it
a certain way or not.
I brake with my right prosthetic.
We've got a shorter one
which gives me more control over it.
And then on the right-hand side
of the steering wheel
there are two paddles.
The top one being up,
the bottom one down.
And then a hand clutch
just to pull away.
That's basically the controls that
we've come up with and what is
working best for me so far.
To be honest, it's been the most
calm place since my accident,
being back behind the wheel
of a racing car.
That's where I've wanted to be
since my accident and to get
back behind the wheel,
I just feel completely in control
and just relax when I'm out there.
It's a bit surreal but I'm sure
when it comes to that first
racing weekend in April, we'll be
ready for the challenge ahead of us.
Here on Newsround, we love hearing
about you, so we've travelled
all over the country to hear some
of your amazing stories.
This week we're hearing from Edith
about life on a farm and why
she wants to be a?farmer
when she grows up.?
I read it and I'm nine years old and
I live on a farm. We have horses,
cows, chickens and we've got 1000
sheep. The worst part about living
on a farm would be marking the
animals out. It is quite hard and it
doesn't smell very nice. And it is
really far to get to the shops and
your friends. The best thing about
living on a farm is you have got
loads of space to play on. And there
are lots of animals to play with. I
have eight other siblings. Raven,
Ruben, miles and then there's me.
Violet, Sydney, Anis, Clemmie and
Nancy. There's always someone to
play with but sometimes your
brothers and sisters steal one or
two things of yours. My main job on
the farm is to feed a calf called
Joy. She is very excitable. We
bottle-feed her milk and we give her
he and cake. My mum is my role model
because I want to be like when I am
older. I want to be a farmer when I
She's a good laughs.
Finally not long now
until Mother's Day.
It's not this Sunday but next.
So head to Newsround online,
get in touch and tell
us your special stories
about your mum, grandma,
step-mum, aunt or any other
important woman in your life.
That's it for now.
I'm back in around half an hour.
