[TOKYO] Tokyo's benchmark stock index dropped 2.08 per cent on Monday, as investors reacted to news that Greeks voted to reject austerity measures demanded by the cash-strapped nation's creditors.

The Nikkei 225 at the Tokyo Stock Exchange fell 427.67 points to close at 20,112.12.

The broader Topix index of all first-section shares was down 1.92 percent, or 31.73 points, to 1,620.36 as markets digested the vote results, which boost the odds of Greece tumbling out of the eurozone.
