Bee Gee's star Robin Gibb remains in intensive care after waking from a coma and was diagnosed with advanced colorectal cancer, his doctors said Sunday, reports the Chicago Sun Times.

Gibb, 62, fell into a coma last week after catching pneumonia. He is now fully conscious and able to speak, but remains in intensive care and is "exhausted, extremely weak and malnourished," Dr. Andrew Thillainayagam said reports USA Today.

After several months of being ill, Gibb has canceled several public appearances last year.Thou his website said he had been seriously ill, he did not give more details. Several media outlets reported that he has cancer, which his doctor confirmed Sunday, reports The Chicago Sun Times.

"It is testament to Robin's extraordinary courage, iron will and deep reserves of physical strength that he has overcome quite incredible odds to get where he is now," Thillainayagam said in a statement reports USA Today.
