What does debt deal mean for Greece?
Greece has said it has received enough backing to push through the largest restructuring of government debt in history.
Holders of 85.8% of debt subject to Greek law and 69% of its international debt holders agreed a debt swap, according to the Ministry of Finance.
Take-up was high enough for the government to force unwilling investors to consent to the deal.
The BBC's Mark Lowen explains what the new deal means for Greece.
