Let's face it, we're not all natural athletes but thanks to Google's new doodle we can all experience Olympic glory (of a kind) for the day without moving a muscle...

Today's interactive header allows you to put your hurdling skills to the test using the arrow keys to run and jump - and you even get a score at the end.

So if your abilities aren't quite up to the likes of Jess Ennis, while away an hour or two trying them out on Google instead (the ideal time waster) or check out our other favourite Google doodles below.
