    Harry Potter actor Tom Felton says he is 'on the mend' after collapsing during Ryder Cup

    Tom Felton, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, says he is on the mend after collapsing at the 18th hole during the Ryder Cup celebrity matches.

    British actor Tom Felton says he is "on the road to recovery" after collapsing while playing a celebrity golf exhibition at the Ryder Cup.

    Felton, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, posted a video to Instagram in which he thanked people for "all the lovely well wishes"

    The 34-year-old described the incident as a "bit of a scary episode" but did not reveal what happened.

    "I am on the mend officially in case you were worried," Felton said.

    "People have been taking very good care of me."

    Felton was on the 18th hole when he collapsed during the golf exhibition in the US on Thursday (local time).

    He was helped to his feet, placed on a stretcher and driven away in a golf cart.

    Ryder Cup organisers said only that Felton experienced "a medical incident" at Whistling Straits and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

    They provided no other information.

    Felton was representing Europe in the celebrity match, which is held the day before the US and Europe start the Ryder Cup.
