British actor Tom Felton required medical treatment after collapsing during a celebrity tournament ahead of the Ryder Cup.

Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter franchise, suffered a "medical incident" shortly after completing his match at Whistling Straits.

The 34-year-old was playing alongside NHL Teemu Selanne in their match against American duo Dan Jansen, a retired speed skater, and another former ice hockey star, Mike Eruzione.
