A man with a lance walks to his position on the plain as he awaits the arrival of the bull during the 'El toro de la Vega' (The bull of the plain) bullfight, 17 September 2013 in Tordesillas, near Valladolid. The festival is one of the oldest in Spain with roots dating back to the fifteenth century. The bull has to be enticed across the river from the village to the plain 'Vega' before it can be killed to honour the 'Virgen de la Pena'. (c) Pedro ARMESTRE
