Google has marked the 120th anniversary of the first modern Olympic Games with its latest sporting doodle.
The doodle four versions designed by Olivia Huynh, each featuring a different event from the Games honours the 1896 Games of the I Olympiad in Athens, which involved nine sports in the Panathenaic Stadium.
Two-hundred-and-forty-one men, representing 14 countries, competed in a total of 43 events, in tennis, fencing, weightlifting, track and field, cycling, shooting, swimming, wrestling and gymnastics.
Googles previous sporting efforts have included a World Twenty20 themed doodle linking to the search term cricket score, the blue, red, orange and green effort for the Canada 2015 Womens World Cup final, one for its Indian and Pakistani sites during the 2015 Cricket World Cup, and another celebrating the start of the 100th Tour de France in 2013.
