  • Don't count Kyrgios out, says Newcombe

    John Newcombe says it'd be crazy to write off Nick Kyrgios as the big-stage showman resumes his audacious bid to become Wimbledon's youngest men's champion in almost 30 years. "It's a big reach, but his rise has been so meteoric so far that he doesn't know - and we don't know - where his limits are at the moment," Newcombe told AAP ahead of Kyrgios's fourth-round showdown with Richard Gasquet on Monday. QUIZ: Test your Wimbledon knowledge - how much do you know?

  • How Princess Charlotte's Christening Gown Was Painstakingly (Re)Made

    Princess Charlotte will make her next public outing for her christening on July 5, 2015. When Queen Elizabeth II's assistant and dressmaker Angela Kelly was tasked with replacing an ageing christening gown – which had been used for royal baptisms since 1841 – it was no easy task. Kelly, who is said to be one of the Queen's closest personal aides, wanted to ensure the material used for the dress would match the original as closely as possible.

  • Greeks decide their 'destiny' in close-fought referendum

    Greece voted in a tightly fought referendum Sunday that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said will determine its "destiny" in the eurozone, as the EU country teetered on the brink of financial collapse. From remote Aegean islands to the shadow of the 2,400-year-old Parthenon in Athens, Greeks despairing at years of austerity -- and angry at capital controls this week that have closed banks and prompted a clean-out of supermarket shelves -- cast their ballots. "When you have to choose between two bad solutions, you choose the least bad, and that's clearly 'Yes'," said Dimitris Kavouklis, 42, as he voted in an upmarket district of the capital.

  • 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.

  • Crying Greek pensioner: the story behind the poignant photo

    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. "That's why I feel so beaten, more than for my own personal problems," Chatzifotiadis said. Recounting how he had gone from bank to bank in a futile attempt to collect his wife's pension, Chatzifotiadis said when he was told at the fourth "that I could not get the money, I just collapsed".

  • Greece a warning to everyone: Morrison

    Federal government frontbencher Scott Morrison says what is happening in Greece is a warning of what can happen if you don't get your house in order. Greeks will vote in a referendum on Sunday to decide whether their country agrees to more stringent austerity measures after it defaulted on an International Monetary Fund loan of 1.5 billion euros ($A2.18 billion) last week. Mr Morrison said Greece's debt didn't get to 100 per cent of GDP overnight, it happened over time with policies that became unsustainable.

  • Greek villagers' secret weapon: Grow your own food

    Ilias Mathes has protection against bank closures, capital controls and the slashing of his pension: 10 goats, some hens and a vegetable patch. If Greece's financial crisis deepens, as many believe it must, he can feed his children and grandchildren with the bounty of the land in this proud village high in the mountains of the Arcadia Peloponnese. "I have my lettuce, my onions, I have my hens, my birds, I will manage," he said, even though he can no longer access his full pension payment because of government controls imposed six days ago.

Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday.
