Almir Izmailovich Kayumov (Russian: Альмир Измайлович Каюмов; 30 December 1964 in Moscow – 7 August 2013 in Smolensk) was a Russian football referee and a Soviet and Russian football player who played defense.

His previous clubs were FC Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, FC Lada Togliatti, Spartak Moscow, Rotor Volgograd, SKA Rostov-on-Don, Daewoo Royals in South Korea, and Kuopion Palloseura in Finland.

He played 6 games in the UEFA Cup 1986–87 for FC Spartak Moscow.

It was reported that on November 9, 2009 he tried to commit suicide by jumping out of his apartment window; police negotiators talked him down, however, and he was brought to a psychiatric hospital.[1][2] Kayumov denied this, stating that he had just an ordinary treatment.[3]

He died 7 August 2013 when he was hit by a GAZelle truck. According to investigation, that was a suicide as the surveillance camera footage shows that he jumped in front of the truck.[4]
