Sometimes the bulls can play dirty tricks with their horns. Just at the end of the Santo Domingo stretch, a young runner in a hat was knocked over by one of the Dolores Aguirre bulls and it hooked his tee shirt and his trousers with its horn. The runner was left exposed in his underpants, a pair of grey ones, it has to be said. The bull did not harm him in any way, but the fright must have been something and, of course, his trousers are now unwearable.
Still, better to lose just your pants than to end up in hospital with a gored thigh.
