The Bee Gees' singer Robin Gibb could be out of hospital in a week, according to reports.

The 62-year-old came out of a coma last weekend, after he slipped into an unconscious state when he contracted pneumonia due to complications arising from his battle with colon and liver cancer.

The Sunday Mirror is now reporting that the singer is sitting up in his bed and talking to his family. They also said that doctors have informed the singer's wife, Dwina Gibb, that the singer could return to their family home soon.

The paper quoted a friend, who said: "Robin is still weak but getting better by the day. His recovery is nothing short of a miracle. Weeks ago Dwina and the family were prepared for the worst, now they are hoping he will be home very soon.

"They will not rush him but there is a very good possibility of him being discharged at the end of the week and arrangements are being made for him to have medical help at home.

“The doctors will not take the decision lightly. Dwina will make sure his every medical need is catered for. Robin is aware how close to death he was. But he is determined to go home.”

Robin Gibb's career in music began when he formed The Bee Gees with his brothers Barry and Maurice in 1958. The group went onto to enjoy success spanning six decades, with hits including 'Stayin' Alive' and 'I've Gotta Get A Message To You'.

Gibb had recently composed his classical debut, 'The Titanic Requiem', to mark the 100th anniversary of the nautical disaster. The score, which he worked on with son Robin-John, was premiered at an event in central London on April 12. However, Robin was too ill to attend.
