VIDEO: See Arnold Schwarzenegger reaction after he was dropkicked by a South African man
The 71-year-old former bodybuilder, star of the Terminator franchise, and former governor of California, was attacked with a flying kick while on a trip to South Africa.
He was attending the sporting event, Arnold Classic Africa, at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg on Saturday, where the incident occurred.
In the videos, Schwarzenegger was taking photographs with fans and judging a skipping competition when a man jumped and kicked him and it didn’t even knock him down.
Schwarzenegger later posted a message to Twitter informing his followers that there was “nothing to worry about”.
“Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about,” he wrote.
“I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.”

I drank too much tequila last night and have been lying on my couch, using my dog as a pillow for the last 3 hours.pic.twitter.com/S3jFjpYY31
