Hero who single-handedly fought the three machete-wielding terrorists with bare fists receives Learn to Run handbook in hospital

A hero footie fan told how he single-handedly fought the three machete-wielding jihadis with just his fists, while screaming: “F*** you, I’m Millwall!”.

 Roy Larner, 47, was with his friends in a pub when the terrorists burst in, attacking revellers with weapons and chanting “Islam, Islam!” and “This is for Allah”.
Roy fearlessly shouted back and fought the terrorists alone, giving other drinkers and staff ample time to escape. He was stabbed eight times before the jihadis fled the Black & Blue restaurant and bar. He has now been hailed the Lion of London Bridge, a nod to his club’s nickname, Lion.
He is fast recovering and has been moved out of intensive care. Seeing that he was out of danger, his friends sent him a present in hospital and it was a book with a title, “Learn to Run”. The book is a tongue-in-cheek recognition of the brave man’s refusal to hide or run from the terrorists.

He told The Sun from hospital: 
“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 p*** out of these b******s’. I took a few steps towards them and said, ‘F*** you, I’m Millwall’. So they started attacking me. 
"I stood in front of them trying to fight them off. Everyone else ran to the back. I was on my own against all three of them, that’s why I got hurt so much. It was just me, trying to grab them with my bare hands and hold on. I was swinging. I got stabbed and sliced eight times. They got me in my head, chest and both hands. There was blood everywhere. They were saying, ‘Islam, Islam!’. I said again, ‘F*** you, I’m Millwall!’ It was the worst thing I could have done as they carried on attacking me. Luckily, none of the blows were straight at me or I’d be dead.”
Roy, of Peckham, South East London, described the chaos as the terrorists first came into Black & Blue. He said: 
“There was loads of noise. No one knew what was happening. Then the bouncers tried to shut the door. The terrorists were pushing against the doors to get in. Everyone inside was running around in panic. A few tried to get out the back and others hid under tables or behind counters. The men then smashed open the door where I was standing. The three of them stood together.”
After the terrorists were gunned down by police, Roy was taken to St Thomas’s Hospital in critical condition and had surgery to wounds on his head, fingers and chest. Doctors took him off the critical list on Sunday. His mother,  Phyllis Larner, 78, was so proud of him when she heard what her son and said that is who he typically is. She said he was never one to back down from a fight and would give as much blows as he got.

A petition has begun urging Roy to be honoured with a George Cross, Britain’s highest gallantry award for civilians.

This is exactly what i did when robbers were shooting at us in Rivers state. All the men with us were shot down. I was the only man standing. I had to make sure others were safe. I remember asking a woman that was busy shouting "blood of Jesus to shut up and lie down flat. Dear feminists, you still need a man. I have never read or heard anywhere that a woman laid down her life for strangers. Never! We men have that natural instinct to protect. And we have been doing that for centuries.

I want to disagree with all who said the guy was probably high in alcohol. He's a brave guy;the other guys who where running and hiding all around the bar, were they not high too?

He even remember what he was saying to the terrorists while the fight was on; I think he's just brave. Just maybe 3 to 5 people would have been recorded dead in tgat attack.

Let us learn to appreciate heroes.

He is brave indeed!!!

For you all saying he only could have done it because he was tipsy, I ask was he the only one tipsy in that pub?The difference with him is that he has a natural tendency to help, and it manifested even in his "tipsy state". A brave man exhibits bravery even while tipsy but a coward is likely to run under the table given the situation. A medal for him please

Yoruba adage says 'ur action when u are drunk is outward expression of ur hidden inner self'. Even if this man was drunk, he has exhibited act of bravery and has reduced the number of victims that would have been affected or salvaged d situation. He is therefore worthy to be considered a hero. Bravo.

When will we be rid of this evil called islam. Pussy loving religion founded by a mad pervert. A randy paedophile they call prophet.
