Matador Ivan Fandiño Dies After Being Gored By Bull

Matador Ivan Fandiño  Dies After Being Gored By Bull

Award-winning matador Ivan Fandiño has been killed after being gored by a bull during a fight in France this afternoon.

The 36-year-old, who took on his first bull at the age of 14, died in the French town of Mont-de-Marsan.

The Basque bullfighter, originally from Orduña, in the Basque Country, was caught while performing a movement with his cape to one of his compatriot Juan del Álamo's bulls.

During the competition he stumbled over his cloak and fell on the ground.

Fandiño was wounded by the bull, suffering a severe goring in his right side, which punctured a lung. Although an emergency procedure was performed by a doctor at the bullring's surgery, it is believed that his heart stopped in the ambulance, and he was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Earlier in the day, while facing his first bull in the competition, he had cut his ear.

Man Dies After Being Gored By Bull At Festival In Alicante



He had been invited to the festivities to fight bulls alongside Juan Del Álamo and Frenchman Thomas Dufau.

Following the incident, Del Álamo told cameras: "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."

During his 12-year professional career, he fought hundreds of bulls, winning a number of awards.
