Russell Nigel Latapy (born 2 August 1968 in Port of Spain) is a former professional Trinidad and Tobago football player. Latapy was the Trinidad and Tobago national team coach. But was fired after Trinidad and Tobago failed to qualify for the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Along with Pat Jennings and his friend and compatriot Dwight Yorke, Latapy holds the record for number of participations in different World Cup competitions - six (1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010). Although he has not achieved the same degree of international recognition as Yorke, Latapy is touted as a football legend by fans and supporters from Trinidad and Tobago, with some fans considering Latapy to be the greatest footballer ever to play for Trinidad and Tobago.
