Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked on Saturday during his visit to South Africa.

The 71-year-old actor and former California governor was in the country for Arnold Classic Africa, a multi-sport event held in Johannesburg each May.

A video shows Schwarzenegger on the sidelines filming a rope-skipping competition on a phone.

As he turns back around to hand the phone over, a man runs from behind and jump-kicks Schwarzenegger in the back.

Security quickly grabbed the man and took him away. A few moments later, a person can be heard repeatedly shouting, “Help me! I need a Lamborghini!”

Schwarzenegger did not seem fazed. The video shows him leaving the venue soon after, and a few hours later, he posted a video of himself on Twitter greeting fans like nothing happened.

Eventually Schwarzenegger addressed the incident and reassured everyone he was fine.

“A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges. I hope this was a wake-up call, and he gets his life on the right track,” said.

He added: “But I’m moving on and I’d rather focus on the thousands of great athletes I met at @ArnoldSports Africa.”

Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, author, philanthropist, activist, politician, and former professional bodybuilder and powerlifter.

He served as the 38th Governor of California from 2003 to 2011. Schwarzenegger began lifting weights at the age of 15.
