Spain, which received a €100billion bailout for its wobbling banking sector in 2012, recorded a 0.9 per cent increase in GDP in the first quarter of this year.

The news highlights the growing rift between the fortunes of Greece and the other bailed-out Eurozone countries as the Greeks battle to meet their next repayment to the IMF, which is due next week.
