Hallelujah! It looks like our dear Idris Elba is doing just fine as he did in fact make it to the Mandela red carpet despite having to miss some press events.
Photos of the actor has emerged on Twitter showing him being interviewed on the red carpet and apparently very “hot.”

We’re thankful Idris is okay and back in action.
Nooooo! Say it ain’t so…
It is being reported that earlier today, Idris Elba was rushed to a hospital after suffering an asthma attack and had to miss his press events for Mandela in South Africa.
According to reports, the heart throb actor was jetting from London to Johannesburg to make it to today’s press conference for the film when the attack happened before the plane even pulled off.
Despite the incident, the film’s producer Anant Singh said he was expected to appear at a planned red carpet event on Sunday. Singh told reporters:
‘Idris is in hospital after an asthma attack on the plane last night,’
The Luther star has been hard at work, snagging role after role. Hopefully he can slow down soon to catch some rest.
We hope he recovers and feels better soon!
