The 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea are now officially over. But the drama continued right to the very end of the games. For the first time in 26 years ice hockey players from Russia earn Olympic gold, beating Germany 4-3 in a nail-biting game. That win gives Olympic athletes from Russia a total of 17 medals. The UN Security Council unanimously votes for a 30-day ceasefire in Syria - to allow for urgent humanitarian assistance to reach civilians in the hardest-hit parts of the country. Germany's leading tabloid publishes, what it thought was, undeniable evidence of Russian meddling in the country's politics - only to realise it was an embarrassing hoax.
