A Peruvian matador was lucky to walk away from an eye-watering goring from an enraged bull.

Andres Roca Rey, 19, was struck in the buttocks during a show at the La Maestranza bullring in Seville.

The matador screamed in agony as the 530kg bull repeatedly tossed him in the air.

 Other matadors rushed to his aid and tried to calm the bull and Roca Rey eventually managed to free himself.

He walked away with blood on his leg but it is not clear if it was his or the bull's.

 Bull's are usually stabbed in the back and shoulders before they enter the ring to work them up and also to weaken them.

The former king of Spain, Juan Carlos, was in the crowd and watched as Roca Rey managed a "victory" lap.
