Tweeting about the incident, the 71-year-old actor wrote: “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.”
The former California Governor who was hosting in Johannesburg, the annual Arnold Classic Africa, an international multi-sports festival asked organizers of the event not to press charges against the attacker who was immediately apprehended.
The attacker was also said to be known to police for similar incidents in the past.
