A brewery has created a new beer called F**k You, I’m Millwall in honour of a brave football fan who took on the murderous terrorists in London.
Roy Larner refused to run when the men ran amok with knives after mowing down people with a van on London Bridge.
He became a hero when he stood up, walked towards them and shouted: “F**k you, I’m Millwall” in reference to his London team, who have something of a fearsome following.
The knifemen then set about stabbing and slashing him repeatedly, but his extraordinary courage undoubtedly gave time for others to escape, saving many lives.
Frequency Beer Works, just north of Stockholm in Sweden, has now created a five per cent bitter in honour of Mr Larner, who is still recovering from his serious injuries.
It’s called simply F**k you, I’m Millwall, and any profits from the sale of the beer will go towards Mr Larner’s JustGiving page.
Larner explained to The Sun: “I stood in front of them trying to fight them off. Everyone else ran to the back. 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.”
“They were saying, ‘Islam, Islam!’. I said again, ‘F**k you, I’m Millwall!’
“It was the worst thing I could have done as they carried on attacking me.”
The beer brewed in tribute to him is now being sold locally in Sweden – but could be brought over to the UK.
David Mortimer, who is a co-owner of the Frequency Beer Works Brewery, said: “A friend of mine who is a Millwall fan in London sent me a link to an article about Roy and I thought it was an amazing story of his bravery.
“I thought ‘that’s amazing, that really is something special’ so I spoke to the other guys at the brewery and we thought we could stick some money into the Just Giving campaign but that it would be more fun to tell the world about it.
“It just feels like it’s one of those stories you want to tell people about because it’s amazing – and it’s also a great name for a beer.
“The reaction and feedback we’ve had has been so overwhelming so we are looking at getting the beer over to the UK as soon as possible.”
