Australian injured in Running of the Bulls, Spain

AN Australian is among a handful of people who have been injured this week during the annual Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

The Australian, 27, was gored twice during the second bull run through the cobblestoned streets of the historic city in the country's north.

It is understood the man was gored in the groin and the thigh at the end of the run and was treated at the scene before being taken to Navarra Hospital.

The San Fermin media office said the man, identified only as TLO, had since been released from hospital.

The nine-day festival sees runners wearing traditional white clothing and red handkerchiefs around their necks charge down a winding course to the city's bullring alongside six huge bulls and six steers.

The United States, Australia, New Zealand and United Kingdom usually account for the greatest number of foreign bull run participants.
