Bullfighting is a long-standing tradition that dates back thousands of years, but things doesn't always end well.

Over the weekend, celebrated Spanish matador Iván Fandiño was gored during a bullfight in the French region of Landes... and died.

A video surfaced of the tragic event, where Fandiño is seen doing his usual routine with the bull, but is tripped up by his cape, falls to the ground and hit by the charging bull.

Other bullfighters stepped in to help, grabbing the bull's attention while others picked him Fandiño up and carried him out of the bullring.

He suffered a wound to his lung and was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died.

Fandiño was just 36 years old.
