Schwarzenegger: Actor Attacked in his Arnold Classic Africa Event

May 18, 2019–Arnold Schwarzenegger was assaulted by an unknown man Saturday at his Arnold Classic Africa event in Johannesburg, South Africa when the man took a jump kick into the 71-year-old actor’s back.

In video posted to Twitter, Schwarzenegger can be seen filming some children skipping rope in what appears to be a gymnasium when a man takes a flying leap at the actor and kicks Schwarzenegger into the group of people he was standing near. The man is immediately apprehended by another man, presumably security, who was standing nearby.

Schwarzenegger posted on Twitter that “there is nothing to worry about,” and said he thought he had just been jostled by the crowd.

“I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you,” he continued. “I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.”

He used the incident to encourage viewers to pay more attention to the athletes at the event, which includes 90 sports and 24,000 participants “of all ages and abilities.”
