From the start of the 2016 Olympic games in Rio, Google released a daily sports themed Doodle in commemoration of the international sporting event that has captivated our screens, and saturated social media on a global scale. 3.7 billion people actively engaged with the Rio 2016 Olympics across multiple media platforms, so it is fair to say that Google, and social media platforms such as Twitter, and Facebook have revolutionised the way we watch television.

Alongside the daily Google Fruit Doodles, Google also released an app compatible for Android and iOS, with more than  3,658,349 downloading and rating it.
