He's a hero to the Spanish (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lionel

Here is my best explanation:

'he's' is the definition.

'a hero to the spanish' is the subsidiary indication.

'a hero' becomes 'lion'.

'to the spanish' becomes 'el'.

'lion'+'el'='lionel'

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for lionel that I've seen before include "This man", "Oil Len badly for another man", "Guy", "- Bart, (Oliver!)", "Boy", "Blair possibly" and "-- Bart; -- Richie".)
