    There is a new face in charge of Europe's central bank.

    Mario Draghi has handed over the presidency of the European Central Bank to former International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde - after eight years as the bank's president.

    It has been a turbulent reign for Draghi - who has had to deal with threats to the Eurozone and the Greek bailout.
