This was exactly why he recently visited South Africa to take part in another sporting event, the Arnold Sports Africa Festival, which gathers thousands of athletes in bodybuilding competitions and some combat disciplines every May.

When Schwarzenegger was talking to his fans, another man unexpectedly kicked Arnold in his back in a powerful jump. As can be seen in the video that was shared on the actor's social networks, only a few seconds were enough for the security to get the arrogant man, who was then immediately handed over to police.

Even though The Terminator actor is already over 70, he showed that he is still strong since the kick barely forced him to lean forward. Moreover, he soon even pointed out that he didn’t realize he was hit until he watched the video:

In addition, he insisted on ignoring the attack and, instead, invited to share the images and videos of the athletes competing during the festival:
