Landing gear smoke

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

A Boeing 777 approached its destination and landed safely on runway 21. As the plane taxied to the apron the tower advised the pilots that they could see smoke coming from the right main gear. The plane stopped on a taxiway and the fire services sprayed the right main gear with foam. After checking the plane they discovered a hydraulic leak which was dripping onto the right main gear and causing the smoke. The plane continued to taxi to the apron and the passengers disembarked without a delay.
