And yet, the latest ring seems to mean no less to him than the first. "The ring symbolizes so many things, and more than just something you wear on your hand - the memories you have in your mind and your heart is what you'll remember for the rest of your life," Brady said in a video on Patriots.com while attending the Patriots' Super Bowl ring ceremony.

A Spanish bullfighter died on Saturday after he tripped in the ring and was gored in the chest by the bull in southwestern France, according to media reports.

Ivan Fandino, 36, was rushed to hospital, but later died from his injuries, Spanish news agency EFE reported, citing sources close to the Basque matador's entourage.

Fandino stumbled after tripping on a cape used in a turn to engage and distract the specially-bred fighting bull, and the animal then pierced the matador's side with one of his horns, EFE said.

He is the second Spanish bullfighter to die in the ring in the past year. Victor Barrio was killed after being gored by a bull in front of spectators last July, the first time since the early 1990s a professional matador had died in the ring in Spain.

Every year several people die in Spanish summer festivals involving bulls running through towns or being chased in the countryside, which often attract tourists. (Reporting by Sarah White, editing by G Crosse)
