Arnold Schwarzenegger says that he is doing just fine after being attacked during a walkthrough of the fourth annual Arnold Classic Africa competition in Sandton, South Africa.
The WWE Hall of Famer, 71, was filming a Snapchat video when a man dropkicked him in the back. The crazed fan was immediately tackled, with authorities believing that he carefully planned the assault, having orchestrated similar incidents in the past. Organizers of the event issued the following statement.
The Terminator star was seemingly unfazed and continued on supporting the athletes. He took to Twitter to thank everyone for their concerns and praise all the young competitors. The thread, which can be seen below, does contain footage of the incident.
Do me a favor: instead of sharing the video of the guy who wants to be famous, watch some of our @ArnoldSports athletes like this young hero proving that fitness is for everyone who deserve to be famous. They’re on my Snapchat. pic.twitter.com/EuMynJ7t1n— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) May 18, 2019
And if you have to share the video (I get it), pick a blurry one without whatever he was yelling so he doesn’t get the spotlight.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) May 18, 2019
By the way... block or charge? pic.twitter.com/TEmFRCZPEA
Schwarzenegger can next be seen in Terminator: Dark Fate which hits theatres on November 1st, 2019.
