Millwall fan who tackled London terrorists a 'hero' - Carl Frampton

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.

Mr Larner's actions have also been widely praised on social media, where he has been dubbed "The Lion of London Bridge", in reference to Millwall's nickname the Lions.

The 47-year-old is now in hospital with knife wounds all over his body, and told The Sun that he acted "like an idiot" when the terrorists burst into the restaurant. "Then it was, "Islam, Islam, Islam", Larner said.

"They started saying all that, I don't know why I said that all that back".

"I stopped them getting in and and attacking children and families in there". I was on my own against all three of them, that's why I got hurt so much.

He added: "I was determined not to let them in and luckily they died around me which was one of the best feelings ever". They got me in my head, chest and both hands.

Roy is currently recovering in hospital after undergoing surgery on his injuries, and in a heart-warming gesture, the public have now crowd-funded nearly £10,000 for him to show their appreciation. He replied in typically blunt London-fashion, with: "F**k you, I'm Millwall", prompting them to round on him. "There was blood everywhere".

Roy, who recently watched his Millwall side win promotion from League One to the Championship at Wembley in the play-offs, said he "just did what I had to do". A spokesman for the club said: "Millwall Football Club wishes to commend Roy Larner for his vast bravery in incredibly terrifying circumstances, and indeed all other members of the public whose actions helped to save others".
