    A fighting bull skewered a 'reckless' Australian thrill-seeker in the leg on Friday after he taunted the beast in Spain's San Fermin fiesta, organisers said.
    The half-tonne bull pierced the tourist's right thigh with its horn and tossed him across the sand of the bull ring in the final stage of a daily bull-run in Pamplona, northern Spain.
    Doctor's in the bull-ring's surgery treated the man for damage to a major artery and his condition had improved, said a spokeswoman for the festival organisers.
    The pack of six massive bulls and six steers thundered 846.6 metres through the winding streets of Pamplona from a holding pen to a bull-fighting ring in three minutes and 10 seconds, organisers said.
    Thousands of runners, most dressed in white with red handkerchiefs, surrounded the charging bulls, some a few paces in front of the beasts' horns and others slapping them from the side or behind.
    But once the herd entered the ring, the Australian tourist, dressed in a T-shirt and short jeans with a red bandana around his waist, started waving his arms in the air, running and jumping behind a bull.
    When the powerful beast turned towards him, the man tried to switch direction but slipped and tumbled in the sand.
