European leaders are gathering for an emergency summit in Brussels to discuss Greece's future in the single currency, days after the terms of an international bailout were rejected by the Greek people in a referendum.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande said there was still a chance Greece could stay in the eurozone, but that Mr Tsipras had to present "serious, credible" new proposals to deal with the country's debt crisis.

Banks in Greece will remain closed until Thursday at least, with people restricted to withdrawing 60 euros a day.
