The horrific London terror attacks on June 3rd shocked the world, with three ISIS fighters killing eight innocent civilians and injuring nearly 50 more in indiscriminate knife attacks in the city centre.
The number could have been higher were it not for the bravery of Roy Larner, a 47 year old Millwall fan who took on the three knife-wielding attackers with his bare hands.
As the terrorists entered the Black and Blue Steakhouse shouting their allegiances, Larner would confront them and yelled ‘Fuck You, I’m Millwall’ before fighting them..
The Londoner was sliced eight times, but he allowed the other 20 or so patrons time to escape unharmed. Larner, who has since been dubbed ‘The Lion of London Bridge,’ underwent surgery and was recently released from hospital
When his actions came to light, the Englishman was hailed for his life-saving bravery, and Belfast’s two-weight world champion Carl Frampton would label him a hero.
‘The Jackal’ would go further, and it emerged yesterday that he sent Larner a signed glove.

Crusaders fan Frampton has a soft spot for Millwall’s arch-rivals Chelsea, but we’re sure everyone can appreciate the heroic actions of Mr. Roy Larner.
