Arnold Schwarzenegger has responded to the ‘idiot’ who kicked him while he was judging a skipping competition.

Fans were worried about the 71-year-old Terminator star after a man snuck up behind him and kicked him in the back.


However, Arnie has reassured his fanbase that there is nothing to fear, showing more concern for his Snapchat game than for any potential injury.

Taking to Twitter, the burly former bodybuilder said:

Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. 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.


Showing his caring side, he added:

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.

We have 90 sports here in South Africa at the @ArnoldSports, and 24,000 athletes of all ages and abilities inspiring all of us to get off the couch. Let’s put this spotlight on them.

And if you have to share the video (I get it), pick a blurry one without whatever he was yelling so he doesn’t get the spotlight. By the way… block or charge?


Fans were impressed with the way Arnie switched the attention to the youngsters competing at the Arnold Sports Festival, held at at Johannesburg’s Sandton Convention Centre.

He was described admiringly in the comments as a ‘legend’ and a ‘true leader’, with one person applauding:

Agreed everyone is just showing the world that committing acts of violence on unsuspecting people like this for fame will bring you tons of attention.

So let’s focus on what’s truly important the health and well being of our nations and our brothers and sisters across the world.


Another said:

Couldn’t to agree more perfect idea let’s cut the gossip & drama and focus on the really good stuff I’m not sharing.

What an absolute gent!
