Bullfighter gored during tournament in Madrid (warning: distressing video)

The man is in serious condition

A matador who was gored during a bullfighting tournament is ‘gravely ill’ in hospital.

Gonzalo Caballero, 27, sustained injuries to his thigh and groin during an event to mark Hispanic Day in Madrid’s Las Ventas bullring.

The bull reportedly hit a ‘vital vein’, leaving Caballero in a ‘serious condition’.

The back of the bull’s neck had been cut by a sword but the animal continued to fight, charging at Caballero and hitting him in the leg before tossing him into the air.
