Known as Michelito, he is the youngest novice bullfighter to have performed in Mexico City’s main ring having just killed his first bull before losing his balance whilst facing the second one which knocked him to the ground before tossing him around the sand.

The young matador said his first appearance in front of such a large crowd has left him ‘with a good taste in his mouth’. Michelito is the son of a bullfighter and began training from the age of five.

This was not the first time the boy has been injured by a bull. In February in Cali, Colombia, he was carried out sobbing from the ring after being gored by a bull 10 times his weight.

Michelito, who is French Mexican, killed six young bulls at a ring in Mexico last year. He was banned from two bullfights in 2008 following protests from anti bullfighting associations in France

Mexico has no restrictions on young bullfighters though Spain only allows bullfighters who are older than sixteen.
