- Story Text: - INTRO: A Spanish matador has stolen the show at a bullfighting festival in the southern French town of Arles.
It's fiesta time in the French town of Arles, as thousands of bullfighting fans flock to join in a three-day festival of dancing, drinking and bullfighting.
On Saturday (March 30), Jose Pedro Pradas, a Spanish bullfighter known as "El Fundi," dominated the ring, taming and killing a 560 kilogramme (1,232 pound) bull.
The bull, known as "Serrano", was one of the legendary "Muira" group of bulls which are annual favourites with the crowds.
The Arles bullfighting festival lasts for three days and nights and the town comes alive with fiesta-style street parties, Spanish music and dancing.
