“The Secretary had planned on flying back to the US this evening, but after further consultation it was sensible for him to remain in the hospital for observation overnight for purely precautionary measures and fly home tomorrow,” spokesman John Kirby said.
He added that Kerry was “in great spirits and active” and had spoken by phone with President Barack Obama.
Kerry, 71, a keen cyclist, was hospitalised in the Swiss city of Geneva after breaking his right femur in the accident, which happened across the border in the French Alps.


The injury has forced Kerry, who held talks on Iran’s nuclear programme in Switzerland on Saturday, to cut short the rest of his European trip.
He has had to cancel both a trip to Spain and his attendance at an international meeting in Paris on the crisis over the Islamic State group, Kirby said.
Kerry was flown by helicopter to the Geneva University Hospital after the accident which occurred around 9:40 am (0740 GMT) in the French village of Scionzier.
Another State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Kerry fell after hitting a kerb.
The top US diplomat will be flown to Boston to be treated at Massachusetts General Hospital by the same doctor who performed a previous hip operation.
