    Today Google has used a sporty collage of figures playing various sports as a doodle on its homepage. The software giant's latest doodle, which appeared after a long time, appears today to celebrate the commencement of the 22nd Olympic Winter Games, which is taking place in Sochi, Russia. The particular doodle uses a retro-theme, which Google must have taken from the design of the Sochi Games' website, where each sport is represented by a different color and illustration.
