European leaders warned Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to present new bailout proposals at an emergency summit on Tuesday or risk leaving the euro, after Greeks defiantly voted 'No' to further austerity in a referendum.

"It is now up to the government of Alexis Tsipras to make serious, credible proposals so that this willingness to stay in the eurozone can translate into a lasting programme," Hollande said Monday after crisis talks with Merkel in Paris.
