A famous Spanish matador has died after being gored by a bull in the ring.
Ivan Fandiño tripped on his cape during a routine at the Corrida des Fetes in southwestern Aire-sur-l’Adour in France.
The 36-year-old, originally from Orduña in the Basque Country, had been a professional matador for 12 years, and won a number of awards.
He was rushed out of the arena and although a doctor performed an emergency procedure in the bullring’s surgery, he was pronounced dead upon arriving at hospital.
Juan del Alamo, the matador who killed the bull which gored Mr Fandiño, told cameras at the scene: “I have no words; I can’t believe it.
“He was in a lot of pain from the goring, but nobody expected it to end up like this. None of us understand how it could have happened; it was all so fast. The bull knocked him down with its hindquarters and he fell face down.”
