Schwarzenegger later posted on Twitter that he only realised he was kicked when he saw the video.

“I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat,” Schwarzenegger quipped.

Wayne Price, a former professional strongman competitor and Arnold Classic Africa partner, said the man is unknown to the crew and his motives were similarly unknown.

Price stated Schwarzenegger would not be pressing charges against the man.
