Question Keyboard & mouse for an original iMac?

Got a text from SWMBO saying she's found "an old Apple computer" in a storeroom they were clearing out at work. Turns out to be an original iMac (the ones with the translucent cases).

No idea if it still works, but there appears to be no keyboard or mouse with it so can I use any USB keyboard and mouse or do they only work with the Apple ones they originally came with?
