Leonard Nimoy is recovering from a 'minor benign abdominal surgery', California's Carpenter Performing Arts Centre has said.

The Star Trek veteran was to host an event at the theatre on Saturday called 'An Evening With Leonard Nimoy'.

The statement on behalf of Nimoy added that the actor is "recovering beautifully" and that "wife Susan Bay Nimoy extends her thanks to everyone for their get-well wishes".

Nimoy was spotted earlier in the week at the premiere of Angels in America in New York, which stars the new Dr Spock, Zachary Quinto.

No additional details on Nimoy's surgery were reported.
