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.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) May 18, 2019

The video footage went viral on social media, showed Schwarzenegger posing for photos and filming at the event when the man attacks him with a flying kick.The Terminator star stumbles forward after the kick, while the attacker falls to the ground, where he is immediately restrained by a security guard.
The unnamed man was later handed over to police officers, event officials said.
Schwarzenegger tweeted to his more than four million followers: "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."
In response to tweets from his fans, he said on Sunday he would not be pressing charges against the attacker.
Update: A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges. I hope this was a wake-up call, and he gets his life on the right track. But I’m moving on and I’d rather focus on the thousands of great athletes I met at @ArnoldSports Africa.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) May 19, 2019
