Veteran Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger got a flying kick from a stranger while interacting with fans during a skipping competition in Africa. The video footage, shared widely on social media, shows Schwarzenegger posing for photos at the Arnold Classic Africa sporting event on Saturday when the man attacks him with a flying kick from behind.

The Terminator star stumbles forward after the kick, while the attacker falls to the ground, where he is immediately restrained by a security guard. Apparently, the man was later handed over to police officers. We are still not sure why the strangers attacked Arnold.

Schwarzenegger thanked fans on Twitter for their concern, but insisted there was "nothing to worry about."

He also said, "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."
