Mario Draghi, the head of the European Central Bank (ECB), has reaffirmed his pledge to "do whatever it takes" to save the single currency.

Draghi said economic growth in the eurozone remained weak and was affecting confidence in the fiscal bloc.

His remarks were made during a news conference on Thursday, held after the bank's monthly meeting at which the main eurozone interest rate was kept at a record low of 0.75 per cent.
