Comedian Joan Rivers has been moved out of intensive care and is "being kept comfortable", her daughter has said.

The 81-year-old star was rushed to the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York in a critical condition last Thursday after having a heart attack in a doctor's office.

In a statement her daughter Melissa said: "My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable.

"Thank you for your continued support."

Earlier in the week her daughter urged the public to pray for her mother's recovery.

Rivers was undergoing a throat procedure in a clinic when she became unwell.

US new reports say she was then put on life support.
