Schwarzenegger later posted a message to Twitter informing his followers that there was “nothing to worry about”.

“Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about,” he wrote.

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