See you.

0:00:060:00:07

Good morning. I'm Ricky and this is

Newsround.

0:00:190:00:26

OK, time for a quick

round-up of some of

0:00:260:00:29

today's sports stories.

0:00:290:00:30

The Winter Olympics are over.

0:00:300:00:31

Yesterday's closing ceremony had

pyrotechnics, puppets,

0:00:310:00:32

and amazing light shows to mark

the end of two weeks of competition.

0:00:320:00:35

It was Team GB's best ever winter

Games with five medals.

0:00:350:00:38

Our athletes are expected

to arrive home later today.

0:00:380:00:40

Manchester City have won their first

trophy under manager Pep Guardiola.

0:00:400:00:44

They beat Arsenal 3-0

in the League Cup final at Wembley.

0:00:440:00:48

For Arsenal, the League Cup remains

the only domestic trophy manager

0:00:480:00:52

Arsene Wenger has not won

during his 21 years in charge.

0:00:520:00:57

In the Premier League,

Jesse Lingard headed the winner

0:00:570:01:00

for Manchester United as they beat

Chelsea 2-1 at Old Trafford.

0:01:000:01:03

The win takes United back

to second in the table.

0:01:030:01:07

Chelsea drop to fifth

after Tottenham's 1-0 victory

0:01:070:01:09

at Crystal Palace earlier

in the day.

0:01:090:01:15

Next to the inspiring story

of teenager Billy Monger.

0:01:150:01:19

Despite losing both of his legs

in an accident, he's never given up

0:01:190:01:23

on his dream of becoming

a racing driver.

0:01:230:01:28

Hi.

0:01:280:01:30

I'm Billy Monger and I'm here today

to show you around by car

0:01:300:01:33

that is adapted so I can hopefully

race British F3 this year.

0:01:330:01:36

Last year Billy lost both

of his legs in a crash while racing.

0:01:360:01:39

Now the 18-year-old is back behind

the wheel of a single seater car.

0:01:390:01:42

So how does he do it?

0:01:420:01:46

12 years of my life I spent driving

a certain way and now someone has

0:01:460:01:50

just changed everything I learnt

to drive in a different way.

0:01:500:01:53

I'm getting used to it though.

0:01:530:01:55

Basically the adaptations are that

most of it is on the wheel now.

0:01:550:02:02

The most important pedal

is this side for me,

0:02:020:02:04

the left-hand side of the wheel.

0:02:040:02:05

I've got my fraught pedal.

0:02:050:02:06

That accelerates the car

and allows me to accelerate

0:02:060:02:08

in straight lines and round corners.

0:02:080:02:10

Every lap I do I'm learning

something new about whether it is

0:02:100:02:13

better to control it

a certain way or not.

0:02:130:02:15

I brake with my right prosthetic.

0:02:150:02:16

We've got a shorter one

which gives me more control over it.

0:02:160:02:19

And then on the right-hand side

of the steering wheel

0:02:190:02:22

there are two paddles.

0:02:220:02:23

The top one being up,

the bottom one down.

0:02:230:02:25

And then a hand clutch

just to pull away.

0:02:250:02:27

That's basically the controls that

we've come up with and what is

0:02:270:02:30

working best for me so far.

0:02:300:02:31

To be honest, it's been the most

calm place since my accident,

0:02:310:02:34

being back behind the wheel

of a racing car.

0:02:340:02:36

That's where I've wanted to be

since my accident and to get

0:02:360:02:40

back behind the wheel,

I just feel completely in control

0:02:400:02:42

and just relax when I'm out there.

0:02:420:02:45

It's a bit surreal but I'm sure

when it comes to that first

0:02:450:02:51

racing weekend in April, we'll be

ready for the challenge ahead of us.

0:02:510:02:56

Good luck.

0:02:560:02:59

Here on Newsround, we love hearing

about you, so we've travelled

0:02:590:03:01

all over the country to hear some

of your amazing stories.

0:03:010:03:04

This week we're hearing from Edith

about life on a farm and why

0:03:040:03:07

she wants to be a?farmer

when she grows up.?

0:03:070:03:14

I read it and I'm nine years old and

I live on a farm. We have horses,

0:03:140:03:19

cows, chickens and we've got 1000

sheep. The worst part about living

0:03:190:03:24

on a farm would be marking the

animals out. It is quite hard and it

0:03:240:03:31

doesn't smell very nice. And it is

really far to get to the shops and

0:03:310:03:43

your friends. The best thing about

living on a farm is you have got

0:03:430:03:47

loads of space to play on. And there

are lots of animals to play with. I

0:03:470:03:54

have eight other siblings. Raven,

Ruben, miles and then there's me.

0:03:540:03:59

Violet, Sydney, Anis, Clemmie and

Nancy. There's always someone to

0:03:590:04:09

play with but sometimes your

brothers and sisters steal one or

0:04:090:04:13

two things of yours. My main job on

the farm is to feed a calf called

0:04:130:04:18

Joy. She is very excitable. We

bottle-feed her milk and we give her

0:04:180:04:26

he and cake. My mum is my role model

because I want to be like when I am

0:04:260:04:31

older. I want to be a farmer when I

am older.

She's a good laughs.

0:04:310:04:39

Finally not long now

until Mother's Day.

0:04:390:04:40

It's not this Sunday but next.

0:04:400:04:44

So head to Newsround online,

get in touch and tell

0:04:440:04:46

us your special stories

about your mum, grandma,

0:04:460:04:48

step-mum, aunt or any other

important woman in your life.

0:04:480:04:51

That's it for now.

0:04:510:04:52

I'm back in around half an hour.
