Top Spanish matador gored to death by an 87st bull that punctured his chest with its horns live on TV in front of his devastated wife

An award-winning bullfighter has been gored to death live in front of hundreds of terrified spectators, including his wife - the first matador fatality in Spain since the turn of the century.

Segovia bullfighter Víctor Barrio, 29, suffered a mortal blow during his performance screened on television, in the town of Teruel in Aragon, Eastern Spain.
His shocked wife, Raquel Sanz, was among the audience and witnessed the tragedy, while Barrio's fellow matadors rushed to try to help him.
Ms Sanz, who married Barrio in 2014, was said to be 'devastated' as she saw her husband lying motionless on the ground, according to El Spanol. 
The matador was taken to hospital unconscious but doctors could not do 'anything' to resuscitate him and save his life. 
He rolled to the ground in a painful somersault after the 87 stone beast caught him while he tried to deflect it with 'muletazo' manoeuvre.
In a tragedy that rocked the bullfighting world this Saturday, the third bull of the day snagged him in the side, rammed him to the ground and gored him the chest.
The Los Maños bred bull, named Lorenzo, had reportedly been struggling but caught the showman off guard after a gust of wind affected his waving of the crutch.
The horrific goring was shown live on TV, and viewers have uploaded footage of the scene on social media. See photos of the horrific incident.
