BEIJING (Reuters) - International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde said on Friday Brexit meant the global growth forecast was revised down and that uncertainty from Britain’s decision to leave the European Union should be removed as soon as possible.

She made the comments at a briefing after meeting China’s Premier Li Keqiang and the head of the World Bank and other senior global economic officials.
