Geoff Ho revealed how he fought off the terrorists
Geoff Ho was badly injured in the rampage and stabbed in the neck after standing up to the attackers.
The business editor was left in intensive care after deciding to "face the attackers down" when they burst into the Black & Blue restaurant at Borough Market.
In a vivid account, he told how he stood up to Khuram Shazad Butt, Youssef Zaghba and Rachid Redouane, having left the nearby Wheatsheaf pub minutes earlier after helping a lone bouncer fight off two men in an separate incident.
I knew I had to face the attackers down, they were armed and I had the best chance of delaying them until the police arrived
Mr Ho said: "I went the five doors down the street to Black & Blue. Within two minutes of my leaving the Southwark Tavern and posting 'not on my watch' on Facebook, the terrorist attackers arrived at the restaurant.
"Most of my friends and the staff hid under tables but one of my friends was frozen behind me.
"I knew I had to face the attackers down, they were armed and I had the best chance of delaying them until the police arrived or they'd get everyone.

"The b****** in the Arsenal shirt came at me first. I think I got a hit in on one of them, but either he or his accomplice got me with a shot to the throat.
"They got my friend who was behind me with a minor stab wound in the face and hands and ran off. I picked up my friend and bundled him into the store room.
"I called the police and within moments they arrived. I gave the police descriptions of the three and we were evacuated."

Mr Ho said he had been told by doctors that he would make a full recovery from his injuries.
He added: "Also, I want to make it clear that many of my friends are Muslim.
"The people who attacked me were not representative of Islam. I stand in solidarity with my Muslim brothers and sisters."
