To mark the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Rio today (5 August), Google is launching the 2016 Doodle Fruit Games Day 1, a mobile game for Android and iOS.
Today’s Google Doodle appears on most web browsers around the world to celebrate the start of the Olympics in Rio and shows a video of Minion-like versions of Brazil’s main fruit exports, such as pineapples, bananas, watermelons, coconuts, and strawberries, engaged in all kinds of sporting battles, from running to tennis and cycling.
It brings you to Google’s main page for the Olympics, which gives you a load of useful information, such as upcoming fixtures and a dashboard that contains the schedule, different sports, information on various athletes, medals won and country profiles.
However, for mobile users, there is an extra treat in the form of a mobile game called the 2016 Doodle Fruit Games that sees the freshest fruit from Rio compete in a range of sports on a daily basis.
To get in the mood for the Olympics, check out these ways that technology has changed the Olympic Games.
