Iván Fandiño Barros (September 29, 1980 – June 17, 2017) was a Spanish bullfighter.[1]

Fandiño died of injuries he sustained after being gored by a bull on June 17, 2017 in Aire-sur-l'Adour, France. Fandiño stumbled after he tripped on a cape used to engage and distract the bull. The bull then pierced his torso from behind with its horns, ripping a hole into his lung and his stomach as well as his vena cava, which fatally wounded him.[2]
