  • Greece enters uncharted territory after referendum 'no' vote

    Greece lurched into uncharted territory and an uncertain future in Europe's common currency Sunday after voters overwhelmingly rejected demands by international creditors for more austerity measures in exchange for a bailout of its bankrupt economy. It was a decisive victory for Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who had gambled the future of his 5-month-old coalition government — and his country — in an all-or-nothing game of brinkmanship with Greece's creditors from other European countries that use the euro currency, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank.

  • Don't count Kyrgios out, says Newcombe

  • Euro hammered on Greek 'No' vote, market volatile

    The euro fell sharply on Monday, while the safe-haven Japanese yen rallied after Greeks voted to reject terms of a bailout, setting the country on course to financial ruin that could splinter Europe if creditors refuse further aid. "The 'no' vote is the worst possible outcome from an 'uncertainty' perspective," said Ray Attrill, global co-head of FX strategy at National Australia Bank. The European Central Bank is likely to maintain emergency funding for Greek banks at its current restricted level, people familiar with the matter said on Sunday.

  • Chinese tourists boost Thai economy but stir outrage

    Accused of urinating in public, spitting on the street, or kicking a sacred temple bell -- free-spending Chinese tourists are receiving a mixed welcome as their soaring numbers help the kingdom's creaking economy. Last month it was a photo of a young girl peeing in the grounds of Bangkok's Grand Palace that triggered the latest round of enraged, and sometimes racist, comments as Thai social media users claimed she was Chinese. In March a Thai model's video of tourists from China jumping the queue at an airport was viewed more than two million times and saw a similarly angry rant against Thailand's largest group of foreign holidaymakers.

    Retiree Giorgos Chatzifotiadis had queued up at three banks in Greece's second city of Thessaloniki on Friday in the hope of withdrawing a pension on behalf of his wife, but all in vain.

  • I might sue NRL over tackle: McKinnon

    Alex McKinnon says he could sue the NRL over the tackle that ended his rugby league career. Speaking to Channel Nine's 60 Minutes on Sunday night, McKinnon said the massive cost of his round-the-clock care since he suffered the spinal injury in March last year has resulted in him considering legal action. McKinnon received the maximum $500,000 compensation payout from the NRL and around $1.2 million was raised towards his medical costs during last season's Rise For Alex round.
