Valencia, Spain (third day)
When Robert and I get to Vicente's minibus after the fight, the atmosphere is not good. Vicente is angry with his cuadrilla his support team in the ring for not preparing the last bull properly. In between tearing them off a strip he has to switch on a flashing smile for the fans thronging the van.
When eventually we manoeuvre our way through the crowds and reach the hotel, there are more adoring fans waiting for photographs, autographs and handshakes. He deals with it all very patiently and delivers grave, long-suffering smiles.
Back in his room his real feelings surface. He is angry at the way things went and is clearly regretting his promise of an interview.
