Harry Potter's Tom Felton is "okay" after the star was rushed to hospital on September 23 after he collapsed at Ryder Cup in a medical emergency.

Tom's friend Derek Pitts has taken to Instagram to share a snap of the actor as he reassured fans that he is okay.

Singer Derek posted a snap on his profile, which was later shared a Tom Felton fan-page as he said: "He's okay [love heart emoji]", and added: "Speedy recovery brother".

Derek, who has been friends with the actor for quite some time, informed his 23.7k followers that his pal Tom, who played Draco Malfoy, was doing okay.

Fans immediately responded to say they were grateful for the update as one user wrote: "I'm so happy now, thank God."

Another said: "Thank you Derek Pitts."

A third person wrote: "I'm so so happy for him."

It comes after the star was carted off after he reportedly collapsed at a Ryder Cup celebrity match on September 23.

Pictures showed the star being carted off following a medical emergency after he collapsed on the 18th hole while playing with NHL's Teemu Selanne, GolfDigest reported.

He was placed on the cart as two people were checking on him and taking him away from the field while Tom was sent for medical assistance.

It is still unclear what the medical emergency was.

A statement from the PGA of America 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."

Tom's medical emergency came shortly after he celebrated his 34th birthday this week as he opted to get involved in the celeb-filled Ryder Cup match.

People surrounded the Harry Potter star as they gave him immediate assistance following the collapse while fans inundated him with well-wishes online.

It seems the star is now recovering well following the immediate assistance, though Tom is yet to share an official statement on the incident.
