Athletes of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics have been provided with a record number of condoms.

Time reported that 110,000 condoms were provided for athletes attending the Games - giving the Olympians roughly 38 condoms each for the 16-day competition.

However, Manufacturer Convenience, who donated most of the condoms, said they didn't expect athletes to use them all.

To further ensure athletes had prime opportunities to heat up in what could be the coldest Winter Games in 20 years, dating app Tinder gave athletes free access to its upgraded version which lets users see who's swiped right on them.
