Arnold Schwarzenegger Plays It Cool After Being Drop Kicked By A Crazed Fan In South Africa

A video has been doing rounds on the internet showing Arnold Swazzneger being on the receiving end of an unprovoked attack. The Terminator was on a tour in South Africa when a ‘crazed’ fan came out of nowhere with a flying kick to his back.

While the clip has sparked concerns from internet users, Arnold simply brushed it off as merely a “jostle from the crowd.”

Arnold had toured Johannesburg for the annual “Arnold Classic Africa,” a sports festival featuring professional bodybuilders, strengths and combat sports, amateur bodybuilding and other health and fitness expos’.

“He travels to all 5 Arnold Sports Festivals (in Brazil, South Africa, Australia, Spain and the main one in Columbus) and he always insists on walking through the crowds, which are as big as 200k people, to see as many sports as possible,” Daniel, Arnold’s Chief of Staff said.

The usually chilled Arnold was casually strolling around the venue, filming participants in actin through his phone when an unknown assailant rushed up from behind and hit him with a flying two-legged kick, known in wrestling parlay as a ‘dropkick.’

“I don’t think I’ve seen anyone assault Arnold like this,” Daniel explained. “But he was hit with an egg when he was running for Governor and responded by saying the egg-thrower owes him some bacon, so he is known for his good-humored reactions.”

The disturbed attacker was swiftly wrestled to the ground by security and could be heard screaming that he wanted “a Lamborghini”.

The 71-year old former governor and action movie star stumbled from the force of the kick but managed to stay on his feet.

“I can’t tell you what happened to his assailant and what caused him to do this, but we hope he gets his life in order,” Daniel told us. “He was detained by police and Arnold didn’t press charges.”

The typical Arnold turned attention from the assailant and instead, reminding the world of the power of sports in improving people’s lives.

While it’s certain that the assailant won’t get the Lamborghini, he should also be grateful that the upbeat Schwarzenegger won’t be pressing any charges.

Schwarzenegger said he is moving on from the incident. “I hope this was a wake-up call and he gets his life on the right track,” he tweeted. “But I’m moving on and I’d rather focus on the thousands of great athletes I met at @arnoldsportsAfrica.”

Despite the disruptive attack, the event was a success and Arnold plans will be back to South Africa for next year’s event too.

 “I have seen people throw themselves at him and push to get to him – that’s what he said was common in his tweet. Once you finish those walks, you’re normally drenched in sweat” – Daniel explained.

 “It wasn’t an exaggeration that he didn’t know what happened until we stopped and saw the video at a late lunch. And he kept doing it the day after as planned. If you check out his Twitter, the first sport he visited on Sunday was Karate and he joked about it in the video he shared on Snap. He wasn’t sore and we made no adjustments to the schedule. We will 100% be back next year for the Arnold Sports Festival Africa in Johannesburg.”

“We just finished a fantastic safari he also shared on Snapchat so the fun continues.” Said, Daniel
