Sadly Lizo has left Newsround after ten years on the programme. Sonali spoke to him on Friday and told him that he'll be missed by everyone there. He said he'd had a wonderful time on Newsround - been to some amazing places, met some amazing people and can look back on some fantastic memories. Sonali then surprised him with a compilation video of some of his best moments on the programme.

Lizo told Sonali that it was hard to pick out a highlight but he mentioned his reports on Doctor Who and Harry Potter, which he'd loved over the years. And also the big serious stories like reporting on how children's lives in Iraq were being affected by the fighting. He said in future he'll be working for the main BBC News channel, reporting on entertainment stories which he enjoys.
