Actor Tracy Morgan attends a gala awards dinner at the Sundance film festival Sunday.

Morgan, 43, was being honored at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards. He reportedly fell unconscious after giving his acceptance speech and leaving the building.

Entertainment news website TMZ quoted unidentified sources as saying the actor "appeared extremely intoxicated during his award acceptance speech".

However, TMZ later posted a statement from Morgan's publicist, Lewis Kay, which said: "Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100 percent false. From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention."

Morgan was diagnosed with diabetes in 1996. In 2010, he had a kidney transplant.
