"The Olympics" may have seemed like a safe bet for the top search term in the UK this year - but, according to Google, it was eclipsed by "Euro 2012".
"Olympic tickets" came second in Google's annual zeitgeist report, which lists 2012's most searched-for terms.
London was the most searched-for city in the UK, while Rio, host of the next Summer Olympics, was the most searched-for travel destination.
Skyfall reflected its box-office success, as the top trending movie.
Singer Whitney Houston, who died in February, was the most searched-for person, followed by "Kate Middleton", the Duchess of Cambridge.
The people list looked very different on rival search engine Bing, which revealed its top 2012 searches a few weeks ago.
Topping its global list was reality TV star Kim Kardashian, followed by singer Justin Bieber. Kim Kardashian also topped Yahoo's most searched-for list.
