Real Madrid’s Asier Illarramendi says sorry after he was chased by bull while dressed as Batman [Video]
A bizarre story broke in Spain on Saturday involving Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi, a Batman costume and a bull.
It is currently carnival season in Spain, and Illarramendi got involved in the festivities in recent days in Azpeitia in his native Basque Country.
Local media have now released a low quality video in which the Real Madrid man was filmed wearing a Batman costume whilst goading a bull in the middle of the street.
Having been outed, Illarramendi issued a public apology for his thoughtless behaviour, however Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that the player will be internally punished for his poor decision making. Ancelotti told reporters:
There is a disciplinary code like at any club so players avoid doing anything dangerous. It’s the first time I’ve seen a player run with bulls. He has apologised and I don’t think he’ll do it again.
Asier Illaramendi was also pictured with two drag queens at a festival.
