That's despite relentless meetings between EU leaders, which have so far failed to deliver any solutions.

And a leaked email suggests that the Troika of international lenders want Greece - one of the most debt-stricken countries, to work six days a week and longer hours to fulfill their financial obligations.

It's 'crunch time' for Greece right now - the German leader and French president are working out whether to grant Athens the 'breathing space' it says it needs to sort its finances out.

The country's been relying on international loans for over two years, but is struggling to meet its bailout conditions.

Meanwhile, Chancellor Merkel's allies in Berlin say 'a Greek exit wouldn't have a 'great impact' on the Eurozone'.
