Man fleeing London attack with beer in hand becomes unlikely symbol of London prideA young man who fled yesterday's terrorist attacks with a pint of beer in hand has become something of an internet hero. The photo, which has been retweeted over 28,000 times, features the man fleeing from the scene with a pint of beer in hand. For some, the photo provided a moment of profoundly dark comedy on a day otherwise entirely colored by tragedy.

And at London prices, you wouldn't want to spill it either. — Dastardly Danny (@dastardlydanny) June 4, 2017 It's London bridge ffs he's paid £5.50 for that pint — m i l l e r (@DrCMiller) June 4, 2017 The people hating on this guy are blatantly NOT British. We find this a) funny and b) admirable. — Sgt.Big_Bubbles! (@Big_Bubbaloola) June 4, 2017 Thank you. We've always used dark humour to get through crisises. Its a particular Brit quirk. — Sgt.Big_Bubbles!
