Basketball star Lamar Odom, the estranged husband of Khloé Kardashian, has reportedly been discharged from hospital and airlifted to Los Angeles to continue his recovery following a drugs overdose last week. 

The athlete had been treated at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas for nearly a week, after he was found unconscious at the Love Ranch South legal brothel in Nevada last Tuesday.

Police officers reported that he had a mixture of illegal drugs in his system when he was admitted for emergency treatment and subsequently suffered a series of strokes and organ failure.

He was placed on a ventilator to assist with his breathing, but it was reported that he woke up from a coma on Friday.

People magazine reports that Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Khloé Kardashian has not left Odom's side since he was admitted to hospital.
