heart problems, the Elysee Palace said Monday.

The Elysee Palace confirmed in a statement that
doctors had found no cardiac problems and had diagnosed that Sarkozy's dizzy
spell was caused by fatigue. It said the president never lost consciousness.
Sarkozy, 54, collapsed Sunday while jogging near the
Versailles Palace outside Paris. He was immediately taken to the Val de Grace
military hospital by helicopter. Doctors have recommended that Sarkozy rest for
a period of time.
"No medical treatment has been prescribed. He was
advised to take a rest for a few days," the statement said.
According to the statement, the president has
postponed a planned trip Tuesday to the Mont Saint Michel abbey in western
France but will still chair a cabinet meeting Wednesday as scheduled.
Sarkozy was due to begin a summer holiday at the end
of the week on the Mediterranean where Bruni-Sarkozy's family owned a villa.
