Greece's rock-star finance minister denies 'sticking the finger' to Germany - by Mehreen Khan

Greece's outspoken finance minister has attracted criticism after he claimed a video of him "sticking the finger" at Germany had been doctored.

Appearing on German TV on Sunday, Yanis Varoufakis denied that footage showing him raise his middle finger at Berlin was genuine.

In the video, which was shot in Zagreb in 2013, Mr Varoufakis is heard saying: "Greece should announce it is defaulting within the euro and stick the finger to Germany and say, well you can solve this problem yourself."
