Tom Felton has taken steps to reassure his worried fans that he is okay after the Harry Potter star collapsed at a celebrity golf tournament earlier in the week.
The 34-year-old, who played Draco Malfoy in the film adaptations of the best-selling fantasy novels, worried onlookers after suffering a medical emergency at the Whistling Straits Golf Course in Wisconsin, US.
But he uploaded a video to his Instagram account to tell fans he’s “on the mend” and admitted he is getting better every day.
The star said: “Hello everyone, ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the lovely well wishes as of… a scary episode really.
“People have been taking really good care of me so thank you very much to anyone who has sent messages of get well soon, because I am on the mend officially, in case you were worried.”
He then broke out into a song telling people not to worry as he played his guitar before ending the video by saying: “Thank you so much for your help, I’m on the road to recovery. Time to go watch some Ryder Cup action. Love you”
The cause of Tom’s collapse still isn’t clear.
When it happened, Tom was taking part in a celebrity golf tournament as part of this year’s Ryder Cup competition.
He had been playing alongside former NHL star Teemu Selänne, 1980 US Olympic hockey team captain Mike Eurzione and retired speed skater Dan Jansen.
He was representing Europe in a six-a-side celebrity golf tournament at the Ryder Cup.
His pal, singer Derek Pitts, had took it upon himself to update fans on Friday to ensure nobody panicked.
Alongside a snap of Tom smiling in the sunshine, Derek wrote: “He’s okay. speedy recovery brother.”
The actor drew gasps from spectators at the event on Friday when he suddenly collapsed and had to be stretchered off the course on the 18th hole.
Thankfully though his video eased the concern of his fans with many taking to the comments section to share their relief.
One user wrote: “Words can’t express how relieved and grateful I am right now. I love you and am so glad you’re back.”
Another commented: “oh my god tom i was so worried, i love you, your happiness makes me happy, Italy loves you.”
And a third penned: “I’m so glad to see you’re doing well!”
