Action screen star and American politician Arnold Schwarzenegger who is in Johannesburg South Africa to attend and promote the annual Arnold Classic Africa was sadly and un unexpectedly attacked by a crazed fan as he was doing a walk-through to support athletes participating in the various sporting codes at the Sandtone Convention Centre.
The incident happened while Mr Arnold was taking a snap chat video of a gymnastics competition when unknown person breached security and proceeded to kick him in the back, in full view of everyone who was both competing and watching.
In a video that has since gone viral, the actor then stumbles into the a crowd of onlookers before him as the attacker is sent crashing on floor.
His security detail quickly contains the man as someone is heard shouting “Help me, I need a Lamborghini”. Many have, however, been left agape on how he managed to bypass the well-built and hawk eyed guards. The organisers of the event condemned the incident but confirmed that the attacker was in lawful custody.

Grateful to all concerned, Arnold has assured fans there is nothing to worry about as he is all fine after the minor incident.
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.
