My New Hero: The “Lion of London Bridge” Is Going Viral For What He Did During Terror Attack

The “Lion of London Bridge” is a pretty cool nickname, and you only get it when you do something as awesome as this!

Meet Roy Larner.  To understand this story, you have to understand two things.  1) in London, “football” means soccer.  And 2) soccer fans are very violent badasses.

Roy was on the London Bridge at the time of the recent terror attack, and instead of running away, hiding or freaking out, Roy HULKED out and took on the terrorists himself, single-handedly fighting them unarmed!  He was stabbed eight times but didn’t care.  What an amazing man!

My favorite part of the story is he says when he realized they were yelling “Allah” and “Islam” he knew he needed to “beat the piss” out of them!  Hero of the year right here!

Here were two Facebook posts about the incident:

And here’s more of the story, from The Guardian:

A football fan has spoken of how he was stabbed eight times by the London Bridge attackers as he attempted to single-handedly fight off all three of them unarmed.

Roy Larner, 47, told reporters he shouted “Fuck you, I’m Millwall” – in an allusion to the club’s association with football violence – as he charged into the attackers in the Black & Blue restaurant and bar in Borough Market.

The Peckham resident told the Sun he was knifed in the head, chest and both hands by the terrorists, now known to be Khuram Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba.

Larner was taken to St Thomas’ Hospital for surgery, where he was later pictured recovering with a Learn to Run book placed on his chest. He was taken off the critical condition list on Sunday.

Recalling the events of Saturday night, he said “They had these long knives and started shouting about Allah. Then it was, ‘Islam, Islam, Islam’.

“Like an idiot I shouted back at them. I thought, ‘I need to take the piss out of these bastards’. I took a few steps towards them and said, ‘Fuck you, I’m Millwall’. So they started attacking me.”

He described how the three extremists smashed open the door of the restaurant to gain entry and he later saw them shot dead by police officers when they left the premises.

“I didn’t think of my safety at the time. I’d had four or five pints – nothing major,” he said. “I can handle myself. But I was out with an old person and it was out of order.”

You’re a huge hero Roy, great job!
