Tom Felton’s friend has shared a health update after the Harry Potter actor collapsed at a celebrity golf match.

The star suffered an apparent medical emergency shortly after the conclusion of his match on Thursday (23 September) at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Wisconsin.

Felton was participating in the celebrity run of the Europe vs United States golf showdown, which will take place over the weekend.

"In today’s Ryder Cup Celebrity Match, actor and musician Tom Felton experienced a medical incident on the course while participating for Europe,” the Professional Golfers’ Association of America said in a statement. “He was transported to a local hospital for treatment.”

The association did not provide any further details regarding the incident.
