José Tomás

(José Tomás Román Martín), 1975–, Spanish matador. Though he first entered the bullring in Spain, he became a full-fledged matador in Mexico City after having gone there to gain experience. Unhappiness with his performance led him to retire from 2002 to 2007. In 2012 he faced six bulls at Nîmes, France, in an acclaimed triumph. Regarded as one of the greatest matadors ever, he is noted for his elegant, fluid, understated artistry and his control, relaxed fearlessness, and focus in the ring. He has been gored several times, and almost bled to death in Aguascalientes, Mexico, in 2010.
