Bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked while attending the Arnold Classic Africa at Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Arnold was observing a group of young athletes in a jump-rope competition. In a video of the event, a woman’s voice can be heard coaxing him to come out onto the gymnasium floor, saying “It’s for the picture. I’d do it for you.”

As Arnold went out onto the gymnasium floor, an unidentified man ran up behind him and drop-kicked the 71 year-old in the back, knocking a blindsided Arnold into the crowd. In the video, the man can be heard yelling, “Help me! I need a Lamborghini!” Arnold later made a public statement on his Twitter account thanking everyone for their concerns and saying how grateful he is that, “The idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.”
