The Spanish bullfighter who got gored last week is doing fine after he miraculously survived being struck twice, once in the neck.

Saúl Jiménez Fortes, 24, from Malaga, was fighting last Thursday in Madrid’s bullring Las Ventas when the bull attacked him.

Jiménez Fortes was firstly gored in the stomach and after falling down the bull dragged him around by the neck.

He apparently told the in-house doctor to just give him a few stitches so he could go out and kill the bull, but he was not allowed after seeing the extent of his injuries.

He received emergency surgery at the ring and was later transferred to the San Francisco de Asís clinic in Madrid.

Animal lovers worldwide have expressed ‘happiness’ over the situation across social media with hundreds of tweets and Facebook messages stating that he got what he deserved.
