Former Newcastle United forward Faustino Asprilla launches his own range of flavoured condoms.

Former Newcastle United forward Faustino Asprilla has launched his own range of flavoured condoms in Colombia this week.

The 44-year-old is fronting the 'Tino' range, which comes in a variety of tropical flavours, in a bid to prevent AIDS and teenage pregnancies in the country.

Asprilla told a radio station in capital Bogota: "I'll recommend the guava flavour condom. When I was growing up, we had a guava tree in our garden and that's a flavour and aroma that's very good for romancing."

The retired footballer has also confirmed that he plans to sell the contraceptives worldwide.
