Flying Kick comes Arnold Schwarzenegger's way at a sports event.
If you have come across at least one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's interviews or movie roles, there is no doubt that you've got a soft spot for the big bulky guy. It is quite hard to believe that someone would actually try to kick the real-life hulk but apparently, someone has.
At a sports event in South Africa on Saturday, a man took it upon himself to struck Arnold Schwarzenegger with a flying kick. However, the prolific actor and former California governor later went on to reassure his fans that there was no need to worry.

The star of the “Terminator” films took to Twitter and thanked fans for their concern.
“There is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot,”
He further expressed,
“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 also posted video footage of the incident which showcased that he was not even felled by the kick.
The assailant couldn't get past the security guard as he was restrained right after the attack.
