Greeks voted overwhelmingly on Sunday 5 July to reject the terms of a debt deal proposed by the country's creditors and began to immediately take to the streets of Athens in the aftermath of the country's referendum.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Sunday that the vote would "send a powerful message of dignity and determination" to the rest of Europe.

The final poll results from the referendum vote placed 'No' at 61.3% and 'Yes' at 38.6%.

On 30 June the country defaulted on a €1.55bn (£1.1bn, $1.7bn) payment to the IMF. The country is on track to default on a €3.5bn payment it owes the ECB on 20 July.

European ministers are meeting today (6 July), including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French Prime Minister Francois Hollande, to form strategies to move forward.
