In the unsettling clip, the animal can be seen lying down on top of the woman before thrusting after the bullfight took a horrible turn.

The incident happened in Spain after the bull fighter – a dwarf – proved to be no match for the black bull she had been taunting with a brown cape in the ring.

As the footage begins, the matador appears to be fully in control of the bull as she started goading him on after he slowed down to a standstill.

However, the manoeuvre soon backfired as the bull suddenly charged at her and knocked her to the ground.
