If you work in an oppressive office that has banned everybody from tuning into the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (or if you’re just easily distracted and avoiding it all together) but you still want to keep track of the results, here’s how you can do it discreetly.

We’ve already given you advice on how to watch the Olympic Games at work, along with a full schedule so you can plan it all in advance. If you don’t want to spend time watching the games, but still want something to talk to co-workers about at the water cooler, you can always just quickly skim over the medal tally.

Google actually has an in-built tool in its search engine that is diligently keeping tabs on the Olympic medal count. You can bring it up by typing “Olympic Games medals” into the Google search engine in your web browser, or simply click here to jump over to the page. It breaks down the medal results by country and by athletes. Very handy indeed.

You can also get the Olympic Games 2016 medal tally from the Olympics on 7 app (iOS and Android) if you want to be super secretive about checking the results and want to do it in the toilet.
