A financial trader who appeared on the BBC was not a hoaxer, the broadcaster has said after doubt was cast on his credentials.
It issued a statement after Twitter users suggested that Alessio Rastani was not a trader.
"We've carried out detailed investigations and can't find any evidence to suggest that the interview... was a hoax," the BBC said.
In the interview, Mr Rastani said traders "dream of recessions".
