US preacher Billy Graham admitted to hospital with possible pneumonia

93-year-old US preacher Billy Graham has reportedly been admitted to Mission Hospital in Asheville with suspected pneumonia. The legendary Southern Baptist preacher was previously treated for pneumonia back in May this year.

During his decades-long career, Billy Graham has appeared before stadium crowds. He shot to fame on TV and radio, and has since given advice to a number of sitting US presidents. He is one of the most famous, but also controversial, US preachers of modern times.

Current reports claim that Graham has been admitted to hospital suffering with congestion, a cough and fever. His condition is said to be stable, and a spokesman said that Graham expects to be back home well before Christmas.
