Pierre Sarkozy, son of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, has been hospitalized in Ukraine’s Black Sea resort of Odessa after feeling ill, said Anna Osipchuk, a spokeswoman for the city’s mayor.

Pierre Sarkozy, who had planned to perform as a DJ at a party, became ill as he traveled yesterday to Ukraine from Prague in the Czech Republic and was hospitalized on arrival, Osipchuk said today by phone from Odessa, adding that the city’s mayor has visited him in the morning.

“He’s now feeling much better and is preparing for his departure home,” Osipchuk said.
