Police hunt man pictured taking 'extreme selfie' just inches from running bulls in Pamplona
The man could now face a fine of £2,400 fine if caught after a local law was passed preventing runners taking pictures while taking part
As 'extreme selfies' go this may be hard to beat.
Police in Spain are hunting a man who decided to take a photo of himself as he ran just inches ahead of charging bulls in Pamplona.
The unidentified man was taking part in the annual Running of the Bulls on Friday when he appears to have deliberately slowed down in order to take a selfie as a number of half-ton animals rampaged through the Spanish streets behind him.
Police are now hunting the bearded man, who took the picture during the fifth bull-run of the San Fermin Festival, and he could face a fine of £2,400 if caught after a local law was passed preventing runners from taking pictures while taking part.
New regulations, designed to stop dangerous behaviour during the festival, prohibit the use of recording equipment during the bull run.
The festival, which dates from the 13th century, attracts dare-devils from all over the world and is notoriously dangerous.
Fifteen people have died from gorings since the record-keeping began in 1924.
On the final run of the festival this morning two people were gored after one animal separated from the pack and charged three runners, pinning them against walls and barriers.
Last week it was reported that four Spaniards and an American had also been gored in this year's festival but only one, a Spaniard, was said to be in serious condition.
