Nicolas Sarkozy enjoys the ride during Riviera holidays

Monday August 16, 2010

It’s been one year since Nicolas Sarkozy collapsed during one of his gruelling jogging sessions sending the statesman to the hospital and causing a scare among friends and family. 

“Intense physical exercise” was to blame for the episode but the 55-year old has since been given a clean bill of health by doctors and has remained very physically active.

The French president was spotted cycling this weekend during his holidays in Cap Negre where his wife Carla Bruni’s family has a house.

Although still maintaining a strict exercise routine, the statesman has scaled back the intensity and has found the perfect balance between staying fit and exercising smartly.

Wife Carla has been credited with getting her husband into such good shape.
