A French bullfighter was making a slow but steady recovery in a Madrid hospital this week after a bull got the better of him at the capital's annual major San Isidrio bullfighting festival.

Juan Leal was wounded by one the horn's of the third bull he had faced in the main Las Ventas bullring last Saturday, which caused a 25-centimetre gash between his legs.
