However, the attacker is seen being restrained immediately by the security guard following the incident.

In the video footage, which was viral on social media, shows Schwarzenegger posing for Snapchat photos at the Johannesburg event on Saturday when the man attacked him with a  high kick.

He tweeted: “Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about,” Schwarzenegger, 71, said on Twitter.

“I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. 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.”

Schwarzenegger was in Johannesburg for the annual Arnold Classic Africa, an international multi-sports festival.

Schwarzenegger told organizers he would not press charges.
