Award-winning matador Ivan Fandino gored to death by raging bull after tripping on his cloak in the ring (graphic photos/video)…

Award-winning matador Ivan Fandino has died after being gored by a
fighting bull. Fandino was a professional matador and has been in the
profession for over 12 years before the fatal accident that took his
life.

The 36-year-old fighter had been involved in a
bullfight in a ring while spectators watched. 

He had succeeded in
getting in a few stabs at the bull while trying to subdue it during the
bullfight but somewhere along the line, his feet became entangled in the
cape he had been using to goad the trained fighting bull. This caused
Fandino to trip. Horrific photos show Fandino being tossed into the air
by the enraged wounded animal. Shocked spectators watched as Fandino
landed on the floor before the bull plunged its horn painfully into his
chest.


The matador, who had a wife and a daughter, came
from Spain’s Basque region and fought hundreds of bulls during his
career. Sadly, he died in the French town of Mont-de-Marsan, near the
Spanish border after his heart stopped beating while he was in the
ambulance being conveyed to the hospital. Tributes have been pouring in
across social networks from friends and acquaintances of the deceased
matador.


“It’s a tragedy,” said a shocked colleague. “We just do not know how it could have happened.”

Victorino Martin tweeted: “Our friend and great bullfighter Ivan
Fandino dies in France. A great loss for the world of bullfighting. We
are dismayed.”
