Greece to get a payout of 8.5 billion euros, eurozone ministers 'optimistic' about Greek bailout deal

Greece on Tuesday reached a deal on a multi-billion bailout with its international creditors, officials said, with the government planning to submit it to Parliament later in the day.
The leftist economist and lawmaker of the ruling Syriza party replaces flamboyant fellow economist Yanis Varoufakis, who stepped down earlier Monday.
In a parting blog post celebrating the Greek 'Oxi' ('No') vote, Varoufakis said Greeks had taught Europe a lesson in democracy and should now demand better financial rescue terms.
