Jubilee Debt Campaign says 126 nations spend more than 10% of revenues on interest The expected rise in US interest rates will increase financial pressures on developing countries already struggling with a 60% jump in their debt repayments since 2014, a leading charity has warned.

We may revere Franco Baresi’s peerless defending during his years at AC Milan, the wonder goals of Southampton’s Matt Le Tissier and the, er, sensational dribbles of Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher, but for every one of those examples there are scores of contemporaries who dot around the league taking whichever contract their agents fancy.
