The Green candidate in France's presidential election, Eva Joly, was admitted to hospital overnight after a fall on Sunday, but would resume campaigning on Tuesday, her party said.

"Apparently it's slight. The plan is that tomorrow she will get back to work," Green senator Jean-Vincent Place told RTL radio on Monday morning after the Norwegian-born Joly fell and hit her head as she left a Paris cinema.

Opinion polls say that Joly, 68, who worked previously as an investigative magistrate, is on course to win around two percent of votes in the April 22nd first round of the French presidential election.
