Legendary strongman Arnold Schwarzenegger is in Johannesburg, South Africa, this weekend for the Arnold Classic Africa, a multi-sport event that allows bodybuilders and amateur athletes from Africa the chance to take part in an international competition.
Schwarzenegger, now 71, was dropkicked from behind by an attacker in a crowded gymnasium, and the clip quickly went viral on social media.
Schwarzenegger tweeted after the incident that he was unharmed and that “there is nothing to worry about.” He also asked people on social media to share the video of the athletes who were being showcased at the event instead of the video of the “guy who wants to be famous.”
Do me a favor: instead of sharing the video of the guy who wants to be famous, watch some of our @ArnoldSports athletes like this young hero proving that fitness is for everyone who deserve to be famous. They’re on my Snapchat. pic.twitter.com/EuMynJ7t1n
