Robin Gibb: I feel fantastic

Gibb says he's feeling good
Robin Gibb has told the world that he is on the mend after making a recovery from colon cancer.

The Bee Gees legend told BBC Radio 2 that he was feeling fantastic after an operation to remove a growth on his colon and the subsequent chemotherapy treatments.

He explained that the prognosis suggested that it has "almost gone". He thanked the brilliant doctor who was overseeing his treatment.

"I feel better than I did 10 years ago," he told the radio show.

"I'm active, my appetite's fantastic, the plumbing is all in perfect working order. If I had a choice about how I'd like to feel for the rest of my life, this would be it. If I wanted to tick all the right boxes about sense of well-being, it would be now."

He added that he didn't know how else he could feel other than this.

The 62-year-old singer shot to fame in the late 60s and early 70s with the Bee Gees, which featured his two brothers.

They are best known for hits like To Love Somebody, Jive Talkin', You Should Be Dancing, Stayin' Alive and Night Fever.
