During the past several weeks terrorists have attacked London and Manchester, England, leaving dozens dead and many more injured. These terrorist attacks have also given us many heroes, people who stepped up and either ran towards danger or rushed to the scene immediately after the attack to offer assistance.
One of the heroes to emerge from the horrific attacks is Roy Larner. The 47-year-old, who lives in London, was at a restaurant in Borough Market when the terrorists stormed the market. When the three attackers broke into the restaurant, Larner reportedly charged at the terrorists yelling, ” —- you, I’m Millwall.” According to The Guardian he was alluding to Millwall’s fans, who have a reputation for being rowdy.
“I didn’t think of my safety at the time,” Larner told The Guardian. “I’d had four or five pints – nothing major. I can handle myself.”
This is Roy Larner.Pleased to let you know Roy is out of intensive care and doing well.Roy is a Millwall fan that confronted the teriorists in London in order to save lives.An absolute legend..❤💛💙💜💚
Larner ended up being stabbed eight times, on his head, his chest, and both hands.
After undergoing surgery at the hospital for his wounds, his family and friends came to visit and like any concerned loved one, they came bearing gifts. And what better way to cheer someone up after experiencing a horrific terrorist attack than with some humor.

Ha. Ha. Ha. There’s no word on whether or not Larner plans to use the advice in his new magazine, but who knows, maybe he’ll take up running after all. But if Larner ran from the attackers and not tried to fight them off, perhaps more people would have been injured.
