Dang. Those are going be some pretty gruesome scars…
One soccer fan didn’t take the advice of London Police to ‘Run, Hide, Tell’ and instead decided to fight back.
With his bare hands.
Like a complete badass.
This guy isn’t a wussified Brit.
Know how he got these scars?
He fought a knife-wielding terrorist with his bare-freaking-hands!
He was in the Black & Blue Bar in Borough Market when the attack began.
A football fan was left with shocking injuries after he was stabbed eight times by the London Bridge terrorists as he fought them off with his bare hands to allow fellow drinkers to escape.
Brave Roy Larner launched himself at the trio on Saturday night who he said had run in to the Black & Blue restaurant in Borough Market shouting, ‘This is for Allah’ and ‘Islam, Islam, Islam’.
As staff and customers panicked, the 47-year-old shouted, ‘F**k you, I’m Millwall,’ before trying to punch the attackers, who have been named as Khuram Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba.
His actions are said to have saved lives as people were able to escape while Mr Larner fought the terrorists back, getting slashed in his head, chest and hands in the process.
Mr Larner, 47, from Peckham, south London, is recovering from surgery after being slashed ‘in the head’ multiple times by the assailants.

His fighting back allowed others to escape.
This bro is a hero!
He didn’t count the cost to himself.
And he’s rather humble about the whole thing.
Speaking from his bed at St Thomas’ Hospital in central London, he said: ‘I’m a bit better. I’ve had surgery. They reckon I might have to be in here a week.
‘I just did what I had to do.’
He told The Sun the three murderers started shouting Islamic chants, and said: ‘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.’
As he shouted the same message again, the attack got even more frenzied and Roy was forced to swing wildly at the terrorists who killed seven and put 48 people in hospital in their rampage.
He added: ‘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.’
Luckily, none of the blows he received hit him cleanly and he survived the ordeal gaining himself the nickname the Lion of London Bridge in a nod to the South-East London football club.

His friends, however, decided to tease him with a ‘Learn To Run’ handbook.
What do you bet he said:
He said that it was just the ‘East London sense of humor’ and not a real attempt to throw some shade.
His mom said she wasn’t surprised one bit when she got the call that he was being treated for his injuries for confronting the terrorists.
That’s just how he is.
Roy Larner does his best to protect the innocent and he doesn’t care what he’s up against.
He doesn’t back down.
Now there’s that Brit fighting spirit!
Of course, it would be a soccer fan that has it.
Good on ya, Roy!
Recover quickly and all the best to you, my dude.
Be more like Roy.
