A bullfighter has been gored in the face by a bull after the half-tonne animal knocked her to the ground.

Mexican matador Hilda Tenorio was rushed to hospital after suffering severe facial injuries in the Mexican city of Puebla, with horrifying photographs showing her face covered in blood.

Tenorio has reportedly received treatment for the fracture of both her cheekbones and her upper jaw.

As reported by El Universal, this incident occurred at the ‘El Relicario’ bull ring as part of the Puebla Fair celebrations.

Taking to social media, Tenorio updated her fans on her condition, and thanked them for their support:

I want to thank you all for your messages of support.

My injuries are very serious and I have not been able to sleep all night, sat up in bed because there was no other option.

The doctors have said my upper jaw is broken and my cheeks are fractured from my eye socket.

She added:

At least I’ll have a new platinum face, although I wish it was worth more, like the Grammys.

This is reportedly the second time the 32-year-old bullfighter has been gored by a bull. She reportedly suffered a facial wound when she was just 16, as reported by El Universal, which resulted in her requiring 80 stitches.
