Upon the announcement that the United States would legalise same-sex marriage, vast swathes of the internet erupted in celebration.

Including your friendly neighbourhood search engine Google.

Much like the doodles that adorn the world's most visited website on days of some significance, Google has drawn a row of rainbow mini-people holding hands to mark this historic Supreme Court ruling — if you search the term 'same-sex marriage,' that is.

As you'd expect, President Obama and leading Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton embraced the decision.
