Johannesburg: A man struck Arnold Schwarzenegger with a flying kick at a sports event in South Africa on Saturday, though the actor and former California governor later reassured fans that they needn't worry about him.

Schwarzenegger, 71, was chatting with fans at the Arnold Classic Africa, an event showcasing body-building and other sports, in Johannesburg when he was kicked from behind. A video of the incident posted by Schwarzenegger showed he was not felled by the kick, but was indeed surprised. The assailant was quickly restrained by a security guard.​ See video here:

"There is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot," the star of the "Terminator" films wrote on Twitter, thanking fans for their concern.

"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."

Reacting further on the incident, in another set of tweets, Schwarzenegger wrote, "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." (sic)

And, "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. By the way... block or charge?" (sic)

Schwarzenegger will next be seen in Terminator: Dark Fate where he will reprise the role of T-800. The 6th film of the franchise, Dark Fate, will release on November 1.
