A martial artist who fought two terrorists armed with knives has emerged as one of the heroes of the London terror attack.
Sunday Express business journalist and kung fu aficionado Geoff Ho was stabbed in the throat when he intervened as the pair attacked a bouncer at a pub in Borough Market, in what he thought was a fight – but turned out to be a terrorist attack later claimed by the Islamic State jihadist group.
Ho wrote on Facebook: “Don’t know whether it was stupid or noble to jump in and break up the fight outside the Southwark Tavern, but two a***s trying to do over the lone bouncer on the door isn’t happening on my watch.”
Ho was filmed shirtless as he was led away from the scene by a police officer on Saturday night. He was walking calmly but clutching his throat to staunch the flow of blood.
