The Telegraph reports that the England of Old is not quite dead.
A defiant football fan who charged at the three terrorists and took them all on with his bare hands has been nicknamed the Lion of London Bridge for his bravery.
Roy Larner, 47, was drinking in a pub when the three terrorists burst in and he held them off so others could escape, getting fairly cut up in the process.
They chanted “Islam, Islam” and “This is for Allah”.
In return, Mr Larner shouted: “I’m f—ing Millwall!!”
He was knifed eight times before the jihadis left the Black & Blue restaurant and bar.
His friends have since gifted him a “learn to run” book, joking about how instead of saving his own life, he put himself in danger by fighting the terrorists.
He told The Sun from hospital: â€œThey had these long knives and started shouting about Allah. Then it was, â€˜Islam, Islam, Islamâ€™.
â€œLike an idiot I shouted back at them. I thought, â€˜I need to take the p— out of these b——sâ€™.â€
â€œI took a few steps towards them and said, â€˜F— you, Iâ€™m Millwallâ€™. So they started attacking me.
â€œI stood in front of them trying to fight them off. Everyone else ran to the back.
â€œI was on my own against all three of them, thatâ€™s why I got hurt so much.
