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.

A pale and shaken Felton was helped onto a golf cart by volunteers and tournament officials before being taken away for further evaluation.

In a statement, a PGA of America 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.”
