Summer of sports is right. According to Sky's calculations,
7 per cent of UK's employees have decided to hide in the
restrooms in order to watch the Games.
SimplifyDigital has a feeling that there were more people than
that but it's good to know that at least some people confessed.
Sky also found that 50 per cent of Brits made sure all
the improvements to their digital TV services were carried
out in time for the Olympics.
Another interesting statistic the telecoms giant published was
that nearly one in ten people was conniving to take a "sick
day" off in order to catch their favourite game, seeing as
only 25 per cent of Brits admitted that they were allowed to watch
the events in the office.
Also, Sky found that while watching a sporting event, men
preferred to voice their views on Twitter, while women liked to use
Facebook. Almost a third (29 per cent) said that seeing something
breathtaking or out of the ordinary sucked them straight into using
social media to express their thoughts.
