Share markets around the world have been reacting to the news that the centre-right New Democracy party - which is in favour of the EU bailout plan - won the pivotal election in Greece over the weekend.

Initially shares in Asia rallied and the euro rose against most major currencies.

Meanwhile, leaders are gathering in Los Cabos in Mexico for the G20 summit, where the eurozone crisis will be high on the agenda.
