Ivan Fandino, 36, died on Saturday (17 June) as he was rushed to hospital reportedly suffering a heart attack, a result of a serious lung injury sustained from the bull. Fandino had already competed in bullfights earlier in the day.

Fandino stumbled after tripping on a cape used in a turn to engage and distract the specially-bred fighting bull, and the animal then pierced the matador's side with one of his horns, EFE said.
