Dramatic video has captured the moment a matador is gored by a bull during a bullfight, sustaining agonising injuries.
Mexican bullfighter Arturo Macias was gored in the famous Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas in Madrid, Spain.
Reports said that the matador was injured in the right leg and sustained a 25-centimetre (10-inch) wound.
According to local media reports, Mr Macias also suffered fractures to his tibia and fibula.
He was unable to continue after the incident as a result of his painful scuffle.
Mr Macias was transferred to hospital and is still receiving treatment.
Speaking from his hospital bed at the La Fraternidad Clinic, he said that he cannot move his toes but he is still "proud" of his performance.
He told Spanish publication Mundotoro: "Right now, what worries me the most is the sciatic nerve, because I still can't move my toes well.
"I hope that as the days go by I can move my toes normally. In addition, they have put on a splint that I have to have for 40 days."

In the video, the Mexican bullfighter is seen toying with the injured bull as it attacks his red cape with three barbed 'banderillas' protruding from its back.
However, the injured beast gores his leg as the crowd gasps in shock.
The bullfighter is seen limping away before being carried out of the bullring, clearly in agony.
Meanwhile, at least one other matador enters the ring to distract the bull.
