A Luchador (fighter) speaks to the camera before the start of a match, broadcast live on Tuesdays and Fridays. Lucha Libre is a style of wrestling started in Mexico in 1933. The name means Free Fight, and matches tend to be focussed on spectacle and theatre with fans cheering for their favourite characters, who wear masks while jumping from the ropes, flipping opponents, and occasionally crashing into the crowd..©Jacob Silberberg/Panos/Felix Features.
