Economic sentiment improved more than expected in September thanks to a sharp rise in optimism among consumers and in the services sector, and inflation expectations rebounded from August's all-time low.

Economic sentiment in the 16 countries using the euro rose to 82.8 points from an upwardly revised 80.8 points in August. Economists said it pointed to the eurozone emerging from recession in the third quarter.
