Matador Gored By Charging Bull

This is the moment a matador is left in a motionless heap after being charged by a bull in a bull ring.

The incident occurred during a bullfighting festival in the town of Lajas in Peru and was filmed by onlookers.

In the video, the Mexican bullfighter can be seen in the middle of an arena when the bull turns to run at him.

The matador tries to coax the bull with his cape to miss him, but the animal charges straight at man, goring him before flinging him into the air as onlookers scream.

The matador is left in a motionless heap on the ground as assistants run in try to distract the bull and attend to their colleague.

The bullfighter is lifted and carried out of the ring and can be seen wincing in pain as he is taken past the camera.

Local media report he was treated for an injury to his face and brain concussion as well as a lost tooth.

Reports suggest he managed to return to the ring and kill the bull which gored him.

He then killed a second bull in the festival which was dedicated to the Virgin Corazon Inmaculado de Maria.
