Arnold Schwarzenegger fly-kicked by ‘idiot’

TERMINATOR star Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken to social media to reassure fans he’s okay, after being attacked during an event in South Africa.

The muscleman-turned-actor-come-politician was meeting with fans inside a gymnasium when a man fly-kicked him from behind.

Footage of the incident, taken at the Arnold Classic Africa, shows the 71-year-old cop the hit in the lower back, but appear mostly unfazed.

“Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about,” Arnie posted to Twitter shortly after.

“I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot.

“I only realised I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you.”

“I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.”

Arnie has encouraged people to now focus on the incredible athletes at the event.
