Robin Gibb, superstar singer and songwriter who was one third of the Bee Gees, has died after a long battle with cancer.

The 62-year-old singer was diagnosed with colon cancer after surgery for a blocked bowel in 2010.

A statement about his passing is as follows: "The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery. The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time."

The Bee Gees' music spanned several decades, from the 1960s through to their world-conquering disco domination in the 1970s on into the 1980s and beyond. We take a look back at Robin Gibb's life in pictures.
