The 71-year-old barely flinched in the assault that was caught on video and decided not to press charges against the perpetrator. 

In the bizarre attack that occurred at the Arnold Sports Festival at the Santon Convention Centre in Sandton, South Africa, a man appeared seemingly out of nowhere and dropkicks the actor and former bodybuilder in the back between his shoulder blades.

His security detail then wrestles the attacker to the floor as Schwarzenegger stands there looking somewhat bemused by what happened.

'Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about,' he tweeted afterwards.
