Sarkozy, 54, collapsed while jogging near his weekend retreat in the wooded park around Versailles Palace. Officials said Sarkozy had undergone tests in hospital and was "doing well" but would remain there overnight.
The president's chief of staff said Sarkozy was "doing well and talking normally to medical staff." He has also been visited by close advisers to keep abreast of current events, Sarkozy's office said.
A presidential aide told AFP that Sarkozy had a problem related to his vagus nerve -- which helps the body regulate heart rate -- but that doctors considered the problem "minor".
