  • Description

    JUAN MONDENO, A 29-YEAR-OLD SPANISH BULLFIGHTER WHO TWO YEARS AGO GAVE IT ALL UP TO BECOME A BAREFOOT DOMINICAN MONK, MADE A TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO THE BULLRING LAST MONDAY AT LOGROND, NORTHERN SPAIN.

    MONDENO MADE SHORT WORK OF KILLING THE BULL. HE RECEIVED ONE OF THE ANIMAL'S EARS - AND A BIG OVATION FROM THE SPECTATORS.

    LAST AUGUST MONDENO LEFT THE MONASTERY SUFFERING FROM "DEPRESSION". HE SAID HE WAS LEAVING FOR THREE REASONS; THE STRICT DISCIPLINE, THE STRAIN OF STUDY AND PRAYER, AND THE BITTER COLD ON HIS BARE FEET. "I REALISE NOW IT WAS A TERRIBLE MISTAKE," HE SAID. "I SHOULD HAVE KEPT TO BULL-FIGHTING".
