Those of you who have read this blog for a few years will know that the month of May marks the Feria de San Isidro at the bullring Las Ventas in Madrid.
We nearly missed last night’s corrida which was broadcast on Canal + in high definition but managed to see the fifth and sixth bulls on Canal + 30 minutos.
In the picture you can see Iván Fandiño being somersaulted over by the sixth bull at Las Ventas. Yesterday was his confirmation as a torero; his second bull weighed a massive 635kgs. In spite of a cut to the hand, Fandiño went on to execute a brilliant volapié (the most risky method of dispatching the bull with the estoca).
