    In a 60-year career, Billy was estimated to have preached to millions of people all around the world. Former presidents are among those many people who have been paying tribute. President Donald Trump called him "great" and a "very special man".

    After being known as one of the best-known promoters of Christianity in the US, Billy embarked on his global mission with an event in London in 1954.

    Billy reached millions of worshippers through television - the first to use the medium to convey the Christian message on such a scale.
