Amid escalating nuclear tensions, which, according to Russian President Vladimir Putin could cause a "planetary catastrophe", between the United States and North Korea, Dennis Rodman has offered a helping hand.

"To me, in person, without all the things that have gone on on TV and potentially a war or something like that, if you see him just sit at a table, he's just like everybody else".

Rodman, the former NBA star, has formed a friendship with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, a major basketball fan, that dates back to 2013 when "The Worm" went to the hermit nation as part of a basketball exhibition.

'To me, I think if the President even tries to reach out to Kim, there's a great possibility that things could happen.

During an interview Wednesday on the "Good Morning Britain" program, the 56-year-old basketball star talked about going skiing with Kim, and of singing karaoke with the third-generation despot.

The former Chicago Bulls power forward said: "For me to go over there and see Kim as much as I have, I basically hang out with him all the time".
