The IMF's former chief economist has told the BBC a sudden rise in interest rates poses the greatest threat to the global economy.

Ken Rogoff, who famously predicted a big bank would collapse during the financial crisis, warned that people had got used to ultra-low interest rates.

He also said the economic policies of the Trump administration posed a risk.

Previously the economist had said China was the number one threat.

Rogoff said that levels of personal and corporate debt had risen in the global economy.
