French President Sarkozy Released From Hospital

July 27, 2009

(ChattahBox) — French President Nicolas Sarkozy is out of the hospital after medical tests showed that his recent collapse while jogging in a park outside Paris was caused by heat and overworking. The presidential office said he underwent cardiological and other tests, and that no medical treatment was prescribed.

“The diagnosis is a faintness from a sustained physical effort in great heat without a loss of consciousness, in a context of fatigue stemming from a heavy workload,” his office said in a statement.

He was hospitalized after feeling faint while out jogging Sunday night in hot summer weather, while on a weekend retreat when a dizzy spell forced him to lie down in the alleys of Ch√Ęteau de Versailles near Paris. Known as the “hyperactive president” because of his frantic diplomatic, political and sporting schedule, the 54-year-old will reduce his engagements for a few days.
