Google appears to have entered the row on gay rights in Russia with its Google doodle featuring the Olympic charter and winter sports in Rainbow colours.
The doodle includes different winter sports such as skiing, snowboarding and curling that will feature at this year’s Winter Olympics held in Sochi.
Each letter is in a different colour of the rainbow, a nod to the row of gay rights in the country which has overshadowed the opening of the games on Friday.
It also features a quote from the charter, which says that everyone “must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind.”
There have been protests about holding the games in Russia because of the country’s anti-gay laws which bans information on homosexuality being given to anyone under 18.
