Larner, from Peckham, southeast London, is now recuperating in St. Thomas's hospital intensive care unit in central London, where he recounted to British newspaper the Sun the moment the group smashed the doors of the eatery and began their horrific attack.
Roy Larner's selfless act in keeping the attacker at bay has been credited with helping people flee the Black & Blue restaurant in Borough Market.
He has been bestowed the nickname the "Lion of London Bridge" to tie in with his beloved football club Milwall, and of course, the lion is representative of heart and bravery.
Roy claimed he shouted it a second time, and described it as "the worst thing" he could have done as they carried on attacking him. But Larner defiantly took them on, receiving eight stab wounds as he attempted to fight off the terrorists.
He added: 'I was on my own against all three of them, that's why I got hurt so much'. I thought, 'I need to take the piss out of these bastards. Everyone else ran to the back.
The man, who was stabbed eight times, battled with an attacker who reportedly shouted "This is for Allah".
"It was just me, trying to grab them with my bare hands and hold on".
