Faustino Hernán "Tino" Asprilla Hinestroza (born 10 November 1969) is a former Colombian football player who most notably played for Parma A.C., Newcastle United F.C. and the Colombia national football team as a forward. Though never a prolific goalscorer, he was known for his skill and pace, as well as for being temperamental and controversial both on and off the field.

Asprilla was known by his supporters in his home country as The Octopus for his voracious appetite. In 1996, he was named by FIFA as the sixth best player in the world.
