Robin Gibb is reportedly preparing to leave hospital this week after making a "remarkable" recovery.

The Bee Gees star slipped into a coma earlier this month as he continued to battle colon and liver cancer and pneumonia.

He later woke from the coma and has since astounded doctors with his "iron will" and "physical endurance", the Sunday Mirror reports.

"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," a friend said.

"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."
