A matador has been fatally gored in Spain during a bullfight - the first professional bullfighter to be killed in the ring in more than three decades.

The 29-year-old Victor Barrio was pronounced dead late Saturday by a surgeon at the Teruel bullring in the east of the country.

Barrio was first gored in the thigh by the 1,166-pound bull's left horn, and his body was flipped over.

He was then gored a second time in the chest and the blow penetrated a lung and his aorta as the matador was on the ground.

Medics were at this side almost immediately, but attempts to save his life were unsuccessful. The goring of Barrio was broadcast live on television.

He was the first professional matador to die during a bullfight in Spain since 1985.
