(my spelling is awfull, sorry)
first of all try to use ´´´ in the e, like this,... Olé, if you don't use it it sounds like 'owl' and it's a non existing word just because of the lack of the accent
Olé it's a mocking word, started to be used in a bull arena and still. Inside it there's only a man with a red cape with a covered sword witch he uses to cover imself also, and the bull, 500Kg plus, and two sharp horns, black. When the bull comes and reatches the red cape the man step's aside and let im hit only the cape, and in that moment the crowd goes olé, it dosen't go olé every time, only when it's a really good feint... it's a controversial issue what they do to the animals i agree, but the generacions tradiction it's bigger then that.
It's also used in soccer matches! Good feints, like when 1-on-1 you get the ball to pass beetwen the opponent legs that will get one good olé... Or just when passing the ball around when winning and the opponents can't get it, the crowd goes olé every time the ball gets passed, it's awesome when it turns in to a goal.
Hope it helped you
Yes. Thank you for explaining the word.
