During his visit at The Arnold Sports Festival Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa, Arnold Schwarzenegger was greeted by eager fans. Maybe a little too eager.

The 71-year-old stumbled when a fan dropkicked him in the back. He confirmed on Twitter that he was OK and said he thought he was “jostled by the crowd.” Not until he saw the video did he realize what had actually happened. Perhaps even more impressive was Schwarzenegger’s response to being dropkicked. Instead, he asked that rather than the focus stay on the attacker or incident, it should be on young athletes at the event.

Schwarzenegger is not pressing charges against the attacker.
