French matador Juan Leal took the painful hit in his backside during a show at Las Ventas bullring in Madrid yesterday.

Gruesome video captures the moment a bull gets revenge on a matador — thrusting a horn up his backside and leaving him with a 10-inch wound to his rectum that almost killed him.

French matador Juan Leal, 26, had been tormenting the beast with his red cape at the Las Ventas bullring in Madrid on Saturday when he suddenly got wrong-footed with the proud animal hot on his tail.

The crowd at the 12th day of the San Isidro bullfighting fair screamed in horror as the angry animal impaled Leal with his right horn — lifting the bullfighter at least a foot for a few seconds before he crashed to the ground in agony.

As two assistants raced to distract the bull, Leal leaped to his feet, grabbing his behind and hobbling away.

Leal’s surgeon, Dr. Máximo García Leirado, told Los Pleyers that a bone in Leal’s sacrum kept the horn from pushing in farther and killing him.

“I cannot explain how he could continue to fight and kill the bull, because a normal person, with such a wound, cannot walk,” the doctor told Mundotoro, adding that he expects him to make a full recovery.
