Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former Republican governor of California, was brutally attacked by a deranged man while attending an event in South Africa.

Luckily the 71-year-old Schwarzenegger was not injured when this happened. This happened while he was at the Arnold Classic Festival in Sandton.

The man comes running into the video and jumps and kicks Arnold in the back. The "Terminator" was pushed into the crowd.

Watch - Arnold Schwarzenegger Brutally Attacked

Here is another video of the take down that is from a different angle:

Arnold tweeted about the situation and even made light of it. Classic Governator!

He also made a request to share the @ArnoldSports athletes instead of the guy who kicked him in the back and wants to be famous.

And in the funniest tweet of them all he asks if it was a block or charge.

It's good to see Arnold still has his sense of humor. It is a very unfortunate thing that happened to him and he is still managing to make light of it.

It was good to see someone have his back and act quickly, to make sure no further damage was done.
