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.
The assailant throws himself into the air and flails his feet into the back of the Hollywood legend, sending him tumbling forward.
The attacker can be seen being hauled away as others rush to help ensure Schwarzenegger has not been injured.

People gasp and a child can be heard sounding distressed in the background as an adult tries to reassure the youngster.
Bizarrely someone shouting, ‘Help me, I need a Lamborghini,’ can be heard in the aftermath.
It is not clear who is shouting.
