The Rio de Janeiro Olympics begin today – and to celebrate the launch of the world’s biggest sporting event, Google have released a new, fruit-themed interactive doodle.
Try your hand at guiding a sprinting strawberry, cycling coconut and golf-playing orange (as well as other delicious fruits) through various Olympic-style challenges to see who is crowned the winner of the 2016 Doodle Fruit Games.
The free game is available in the Google App for iOS and Android until Aug. 21.
Following on from their fruitastic doodle announcement on Twitter, Google tweeted this disclaimer: “We cannot be held responsible for any loss of productivity while you’re going bananas”.
At the opening ceremony this evening (at 8pm local time), flag bearer and 22-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps (currently returning for his fourth Olympics) will be showcasing a light-up jacket with electroluminescent panels spelling out U.S.A. on the back of the blazer.
