US President Donald Trump has been making headlines this year with the 2020 election, but surprisingly he isn't the world leader who has been trending the most.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been trending the most on Google out of all global figures.
The figures were released by Google on Wednesday as part of New Zealand's most trending topics of 2020, which show the searches with the highest increase in interest compared to previous years.
In the world leaders category, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson (3), US Democratic nominee and President-elect Joe Biden (4) along with actor Tom Hanks (5) rounded out the top five.
Also making the top 10 were Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk (6), the stars of Netflix's hit docuseries Tiger King - Joe Exotic (7) and Carole Baskin (9), US Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris (8) and failed Presidential candidate Kanye West (10).
'Coronavirus' was the most trending overall search of the year followed by the US election results which kept the world - and the candidates - hanging for days.
Americans took to the voting booths on Tuesday, November 3 but it wasn't until that weekend that media outlets declared Democrat Biden the President-elect although incumbent Trump is continuing to attempt to overturn the results.
Third in the overall search category was Zoom, which kept Kiwis connected during lockdowns, followed by remote learning resource SeeSaw (4), the late American basketballer Kobe Bryant (5) and the Ministry of Health (6).
COVID-19 has continued to dominate Kiwi's searches, with 'What is coronavirus?' winning the 'What is..?' category.
During lockdown, many Kiwis got creative to try and pass the time.
The results showed in the 'How to..?' category with Google revealing the most trending search was 'How to make a face mask' followed by 'How to make hand sanitiser?'
Baking was another popular activity while locked indoors with 'How to make buttermilk?', 'How to make pancakes?', 'How to make self-raising flour?', 'How to make naan bread?', and 'How to make bread?' all in the top 10.
