Arnold Schwarzenegger is doing okay after being kicked in South Africa, and says he didn’t even realize he was attacked until he saw the video evidence.
The “Terminator” star was appearing in Sandton, South Africa on Saturday for the Arnold Classic Africa when the incident went down.
Arnold stood up from his seat and handed someone his phone to film a Snapchat video, when some guy ran up and delivered a flying dropkick to the 71-year-old movie star’s back. Security dove on the suspect and immediately detained the man, but Arnold was able to keep his feet in the attack.
The former Governator could be heard trying to quiet the commotion and the suspect screamed while being hauled away.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is still a terminator. He was not dropped. The lunatic actually injured himself

Luckily, Arnhold was unharmed — because he’s a badass — and later took to social media to give an update.
“Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot.”
Arnold admitted, “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.”
It’s unclear if Arnold sought medical treatment, and the motive for the attack is currently unclear.
