Harry Potter Star Tom Felton Is 'OK' After Golf Course Collapse, His Friend Says

Harry Potter actor Tom Felton's pal has said the star is doing 'OK' after he collapsed while playing golf in the US.

The 34-year-old star was carried off the golf course on a stretcher after becoming unwell while playing in Ryder Cup's celebrity match at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin yesterday (23 September).

He was then taken to hospital for medical treatment, but it's not yet been disclosed what happened to the actor.

His friend, singer Derek Pitts, has taken to Instagram to reassure fans Felton is feeling OK.

Sharing a photo of Felton, he wrote: "He's okay. Speedy recovery brother."

Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, collapsed after playing 11 holes with team-mate Teemu Selanne, a former professional ice hockey player.

He was photographed looking shaky and pale surrounded by fellow players, volunteers and tournament officials before being helped to his feet and laid on a golf cart.

In a statement from the PGA of America, given after the incident, a spokesperson said: "In today's Ryder Cup Celebrity Match, actor and musician Tom Felton experienced a medical incident on the course while participating for Europe.

"He was transported to a local hospital for treatment. No further details are available."

Felton is yet to give an update on his condition.

The star was competing for Europe in the six-a-side Ryder Cup Celebrity Match and had previously posed alongside fellow celebrity competitors including Teemu Selanne, Mandy Rose, Toni Kukoc, Mike Eruzione, Stephanie Szostak, AJ Hawk, Dan Jansen, Alessandro Del Piero, Kelly Slater and Sasha Vujacic.

Felton celebrated his birthday earlier this week - to mark the occasion he shared a selfie on Instagram, writing alongside it: "33 years done - good lord it's been so much fun getting here - yet, somehow, I still feel the best is yet to come - thank you all for your love, support & sense of humour - let's keep a good thing going - to the next 33."

Here's hoping he makes a speedy recovery and is back on his feet soon.
