This is the shocking moment Arnold Schwarzenegger is drop-kicked from behind while posing for selfies with fans, including children in South Africa.
Schwarzenegger can be seen talking to people in a gymnasium at the fourth annual Arnold Classic Africa event when out of nowhere he is attacked with a flying kick.
Fortunately and perhaps unsurprisingly, despite his age, Schwarzenegger was unfazed, writing on Twitter afterwards: ‘Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about.
‘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.’
Moments before, the attacker is seen to approach the 71-year-old while waving, before a member of Schwarzenegger’s security team apprehends him.
But then as he continues speaking before the cameras that same figure rushes back on the scene towards the Terminator star.
