Singer Robin Gibb is "on the road to recovery" after he was treated in hospital last month.

The Bee Gees star posted a message on his blog thanking fans for their "love, kindness and support".

He wrote: "It is humbling and I take your prayers and good wishes for my health very seriously. I have been very unwell and am now on the road to recovery, and your prayers and wishes are a great tonic to me. I believe because of you I will get well and my deepest love goes out to you all."

Gibb was treated at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for an inflamed colon after complaining of abdominal pains.

The 61-year-old star cancelled a series of performances in Brazil this year on the advice of doctors.

Last year he underwent surgery for a blocked intestine, the same condition which led to the death of his twin brother Maurice in 2003.

The group, which also included elder brother Barry, notched up dozens of chart hits in a career that spanned five decades.
