Matador comes back at 67

British senior returns to the sport after heart bypass and knee surgery


 

Frank Evans, or “El Inglés” as he’s called on local billboards, has been fighting bulls in Spain for more than 40 years. An old rugby injury forced his retirement four years ago, but now he’s back in the ring with a new
titanium knee. “It’s okay if you stop because you want to but when it is because of injury it feels a bit like your girlfriend has left you,” he said. He sunk his sword into two bulls on his comeback night, killing both
to raucous applause and a display of white handkerchiefs of approval from the audience.
