An image of a man fleeing the London terror attack Saturday night with a beer in his hand has gone viral, with some hailing the man as an unlikely hero and a symbol of the city in the wake of the deadly assault that killed seven.
"People fleeing #LondonBridge but the bloke on the right isn't spilling a drop. God Bless the Brits!" said one Twitter user in a post that was liked more than 85,000 times.
Some joked that the man was protecting his beer because of high drink prices in London.
Others used it as an opportunity to mock U.S. newspaper headlines claiming London was "reeling" or "under siege."
