Cristiano Ronaldo's height is 6ft 1in (185 cm)

Portuguese Footballer. He was listed as 186.5cm on Madrid's website although in a Sky Documentary about him, a 3d Laser Scan measurement was given as 185.1cm (and in another clip showed the computer screen itself having 185.8cm)

Seahawksfan,

I've found myself having this to say about a lot of your estimates, recently, but where in the world are you only seeing a two-inch difference in that photo with Usain Bolt? Even with the bad angle and head tilt, Bolt is noticeably more than 2" taller. Jeeze.

and if you still doubt the obvious, check out Click Here what C.Ronaldo needs to do in order to be almost as tall as Vidic listed at 188cm look at C.Ronaldo's feet.. he is standing on his tiptoes

Btw are any of you guys madrid fans? : D
chrisssss says on 16/Apr/14
@tor idk, i my growth pattern seemed like all my friends :/ but i know ronnie us 6'1, whether its 185/186/187
Nick says on 16/Apr/14
with Ferdinand C.Ronaldo doesn't look more than 180cm Click Here

Here's the footwear in the photo to prove that Beckham is near 6 feet:

Click Here

His tilted down, and he also has about four inches on 5'7.5-5'8" Tom Cruise. Is 6 feet possible? Could Ronaldo be pushing 187.5 CM/6'1.75"?
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 15/Apr/14
Just curious, how is 181-182 CM unbelievable for David Beckham? By Will Smith whose listed at 187/6'1.5":

Click Here

He looks no more than 1 inch shorter, so 182 CM at least. Therefore, 186-187 CM is possible for Ronaldo.
Tor says on 15/Apr/14
Chrisss, probably you were late late bloomer, anyway i don't think you've grown after 20-21! And Beckham can be possible 179180cm, yes, but no more!
Appes, yes i agree: their small head and meso-ectomorph body-type make them looking taller
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 15/Apr/14
@Nick
Getting there. The picture is skewed in favour of those on the left but he does look about 1.84 m there. As ridiculous as it sounds, I think he's grown a bit since 2008. Growth hormone? Was he still growing?
chrisssss says on 15/Apr/14
And yo....beckham is not 5'10 cmon guys...minimum 5'11. Not below that

Again everyone @tor especially, i was 5'9.5 (a little over 176cm) at 19, im 24 now and im 180.3cm(exact 5'11) so i grew 4cm, so there's that! And cr7 is measured at 185.1cm, i can't believe tjere is really a debate for this, if measuring a man's height isn't proof, then what is? Unno what, enough with the cm crap. He is 6'1!! Regardless if its 185.1/186cm/or close to 187. Point is he is that height. And please stop changing the listing of these athletes, all athletes are measured, and measured properly, they are not a bunch of biebers and tom cruises. And like i said the lazer theory can be wrong yes, but it will never measure you taller, only shorter. So enough! Cr7 is 6'1(185.1cm MININUM) :)

Seahaw, this page is for Cristiano!
and...
Perez is about 5'5,
Figo is 5'10, no more than 2 inches over mourinho
From that photo seems that Becks is 178179cm (see also him with ibra, impossible he is over 180), Ronnie 181182, Zidane 183184
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 14/Apr/14
@Seahawksfan 187-188 CM.
Beckham - 5'10 1/2", Figo - 5'10 1/2", Zidane - 6'1", Ronaldo (Brazilian) - 5'11 1/2", C. Ronaldo - As above
Nick says on 14/Apr/14
still believe Ronaldo is 185cm? :) ok check this one Ferdinand listed at 189cm has at least 10 cm on him Click Here
Mario says on 14/Apr/14
Okay guys, clearly we have some disparity. I will go with my belief he is a tad 6ft2 morning 6ft 1.75 afternoon, dropping to 6ft1.5 night. I gave my reasons why I think his laser measurement was inaccurate. Disagreements are fine. Bye.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 14/Apr/14
By 5'11" listed David Beckham (which I question), Zinedine Zidane whose listed as 6'1" (which I greatly question) and 5'11" listed Luis Figo (which is a highly questionable listing as well)

Click Here

They're all in the same footwear as you can see, but Zinedine Zidane's head is slouching slightly which automatically gives Ronaldo favoritism in posture. My opinion on the listings in the morning/out of bed:

Cristiano Ronaldo: 6'1.5" (maybe 6'1.75" on a good day)/187-187.5 CM out of bed. So 186 CM is the best shout for him in my opinion.
Zinedine Zidane: 6'0.75" (there's no way that the difference is that large between him and David Beckham)/184 CM out of bed (or you can round up to 185). 184 CM if morning height doesn't count.
Luis Figo: 6'0" (is clearly taller than 5'11")/183 CM. So 182 CM is the best shout if we're not counting morning height in these listing.
David Beckham: 5'11.75"/A strong 182 CM (there's no way that he's only 5'11" as there are photos between him and Ronaldo where there's no more than a 3-4 CM difference. 181-182 CM if we're not counting morning height.

This photo can be used as a reference.

Oh, goodness. Look at what has happened to this page.
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 14/Apr/14
Mario, a magazine cover? Really?
Appe4 says on 14/Apr/14
@tor maybe you' re right. I think always more that fernando gives the impression of being taller than he really is due to his body shape... another simile example is gareth bale
Mario says on 13/Apr/14
Btw John Terry is 6ft 1 at night - 6ft 2 morning. @everyone, go Check the cover of Vanity fair for Ronaldo/Drogba comparison, Ronaldo is hunched over and looks barely shorter.
Mario says on 13/Apr/14
I'm incline to go with 6'2'' in the morning first thing. No lower than 185 at night. Pictures produce various assumptions. If Rob ever took a pic (unlikely), then I am confident he would stretch to 187-188cm. @185cm 83kg "The practice is also not uncommon in Mediterranean athletes" - please leave out any unfounded generalisations. Also, please re-read, I said up to 3cm - not 3cm as a fixed number - 1cm for training loss, 1cm for wide(r) legs and maybe up to 1cm loss since morning - for a total of up to 3cm (more likely closer to 1.5/2cm). Ronnie does not dip below 185 at night. He is taller than Nadal even when he wearing football boots (no extra height, studs sunk into grass) and Nadal wearing tennis shoes (2-3cm boost). This complies with theory Nadal is 183/184 and Ronaldo is still taller in lesser footwear, albeit marginally.
Tor says on 13/Apr/14
Appe4, about 4 inches on Neymar and a bit shorter than Fred: i confirm my 182-183 estimate, legit 6 footer. From this and other pics i really don't see possibility he can be over 183-184 cm
Appe4 says on 13/Apr/14
what do you think about this? Torres with 185cm listed fred and 173cm neymar Click Here
Tor says on 13/Apr/14
chrisss, seing Drogba with J.Terry and Ivanovic, he can't be strong 6'2
Mario, morning height is not real height: nadal after 4 or 5 hours out of bed is no way taller than 183-184cm, or Murray is over 190cm ??

Come on guys, do you really think Utd didn't update CR's height for six years?...at 23,24 y.o. Ronaldo was still listed 184 cm everywhere, how can be taller now?
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 13/Apr/14
@Nick
First and foremost, Ferdinand is at least 1.91 m. You still don't know what a good picture is. You can see nothing from the waist down, Ronaldo could be bending his knees and you would have no idea. There are several pictures on that page where Ronaldo is looking the same height, if not, taller. Why didn't you present those?
Nick says on 13/Apr/14
ok guys, very poor pictures? check this one out Ronaldo standing next to 189cm listed Rio Ferdinand Click Here if you keep seeing Ronaldo at 185cm after this you better find a doctor asap, Rob do you believe C.Ronaldo is 185cm after this evidence?
chrisssss says on 12/Apr/14
@tor he is taller now, he was 19 when measured 184cm and diddier drogba is 188cm not 6'1, cr7 is not below the 185cm mark, and the lazer theory could be wrong, as in, it can measure you shorter, not taller. If you want a better conparision, check cr7 next to henry or pepe or ZIDANE. Idk people are still arguing this, his height is 6'1 and ALWAYS looks it
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 12/Apr/14
@Mario
Again, stop speculating on a variety of factors. All we can work with is the information we have. As for his feet being slightly apart, I believe it was done to just stylize the show (Ronaldo's trademark stance). You think these people don't know how to take a simple height measurement? It still doesn't account for losing 3 cm of height. Being difficult? You are claiming he is taller than listed, the burden of proof is on you. Inferiority complex? I was arguing he's taller. Stop trying to get to know me and provide more concrete evidence. If not, leave it. I concede my growth hormone comment was unfounded, but not completely wrong to assume. He has had an extraordinary growth spurt and he does have a strange body type. The practice is also not uncommon in Mediterranean athletes. There's no point in telling me to go an look at a picture of his father if you have no comparator. UK size 9 is not tiny and medicine is not an exact science.
Mario says on 12/Apr/14
Nadal is not the same height as ronaldo. He is an inch shorter and always looks it. Nadal is very close to 186cm morning down to 183/184cm in the evening.

Google search "cristiano ronaldo rafael nadal" and look at pic third from top left. Ronaldo is taller than Rafa, even in lesser footwear.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 11/Apr/14
If Cristiano Ronaldo is 6'2:

Andy Murray: 6'4"
Novak Djokivic: 6'3
Roger Federer: 6'2.5"
Rafael Nadal: 6'2" (he's the same height as Ronaldo, so Rafael Nadal would need an upgrade for this to make sense, along with the rest).
Mario says on 11/Apr/14
lol at @185 83kg. Seems you like a lot of others on this site have inferiority complex. Earlier you accused Ronaldo of HGH. LOL his dad was an easy 6ft1 go and look at the pics. Ronaldo has tiny feet (UK9), if he was on HGH his bones would become enlarged, and he would have large(r) feet.
Mario says on 11/Apr/14
@185 83kg - His Real Madrid listing is based off his Castrol measurement. They are not independent sources. They updated real madrid page after ronaldo was measured. Like I said legs wide apart, after training and mid afternoon. review the footage and you can't deny had he been straight he would have been taller. I sense you are being difficult on purpose.
Mario says on 11/Apr/14
Ronaldo is 188cm. He dwarfs Cain Valazquez. He is a very tall man. I would go so far to say he is 186cm at night. His 185cm listing is with his legs wide apart (easy 186-7) with legs close together. And lol yes lasers are accurate. They are laser precision.
Mario says on 11/Apr/14
I think Rob blocked me from accessing for some reason? Oh well. I think Ronaldo is now a solid 188cm. Pictures produce various assumptions. Whats clear is he is 185 with legs wide apart, after training mid afternoon. Why is it unreasonable to claim he could be 188cm in the morning with legs together and before training?
[Editor Rob: you personally haven't been blocked, but you could have been unfortunately on an isp that was blocked recently.]
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 11/Apr/14
@Tor
Drogba is a definite 6'2".

@Nick
It's just a username, it's not supposed to have any meaning really. What kind of username is 'Nick'? I was not insulting anyone, describing a 6'1" man as 5'10" is a certain troll. Refer to my earlier comment - you don't provide any proof, you just look for very poor pictures where Ronaldo looks shorter. Since we're talking about references, here are mine: the Official Real Madrid website, the Castrol Edge Challenge laser scan. You have provided zero references. Otherwise, I don't know what you're seeing. Also, if you want to know what Rob says, look above where he too believes Ronaldo is 6'1".
Nick says on 11/Apr/14
@1.85 m, 83kg what kind of nick name is that?, whatever, who is the troll? I was just providing proves, where are your references? you're only here to insult people I guess you are the troll, and BTW once again, try to visit a optician first perhaps and then check this picture with 186cm Kaka, Click Here he has at least 3cm or 1 inch on Ronaldo and this is in any picture you find online he always look taller, Adebayor is listed at 190cm everywhere but in that page, Rob what say thou?
Tor says on 10/Apr/14
CR was probably under 180 cm only when started professional soccer at 17 y.o., in 2004 UEFA listed him 184 cm, Utd had listed him 184 since 2004-2005 to 2009, no way he can be taller now.
(laser isn't accurate and 188 is comical because in previous pics Drogba is a bit but clearly taller than him, and Didier is around 185-186 cm, same as J.Terry)
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 10/Apr/14
@Mario
So? I've heard people that have met Ronaldo call him 6'4", it doesn't make it true.
Mario says on 9/Apr/14
Apologies. I did not mean to come across malicious. I take back the ''comical'' comment. Live and learn. Not calling anyone out! I still think he is or is very close to 188cm in the morning. Even Reggies Bush claimed Ronaldo was 6'2 when they met.
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 9/Apr/14
Wow, Mario is swimming in speculation. You take your 6'2" estimate and deal with it by yourself. However, definitely a late developer. 1.80 m at the start of Man U, 1.85 m now.
MD says on 9/Apr/14
@Mario, you are calling everyone else's comments "comical" and then you go and say some ridiculous crap like him being 188cm. Get out of here with that. lol
chrisssss says on 9/Apr/14
@mario i won't say that tall... It may be possible out of bed, but u see, he is always slightly shorter than khedira/pepe who both 188cm/189cm respectively, altho i agree with your theory, but i stoll think 186cm
Jeremy says on 8/Apr/14
@chrissss bale 184/185. Ronaldo 185/186
Mario says on 8/Apr/14
He has grown steadily since his time at united through till early 2009. He is what we call a extremely late developer. On a stadometer he measures just under 188cm in the morning. Like I said in the laser scan his legs were wide apart - you try measuring yourself like this and notice less height, couple that with the fact he was training - up to 1 cm, and easily possible Ronaldo lost 3cm.
chris says on 8/Apr/14
lol at mario.
Mario says on 8/Apr/14
Comical. Ronaldo was measured with a laser at 185cm. This was with his legs further than shoulder width apart (up to 1 inch lost), also taken mid-afternoon, and after training. Ronaldo dwarfs Ramos on a regular basis and also Casillas. He is 188cm. Deal with it.
Appe4 says on 8/Apr/14
CR 186 and nando 185... I will go for it
chrissss says on 8/Apr/14
so yes guys, cr7 and el nino are the same (185-186cm range) the only player we never had a clear verdict on is gareth bale....i mean when he came to madrid i thought cr7 was taller, but when you watch those pics, one of them is always slouching what not, i know bale is above 183cm cuz he is taller than benzema, lamela, avb, benzema, higuin and when standing next to zidane, they are the same height...soo really dunno bale's height, cuz i refuse to believe that all these 6ft players that i called out are not really 6ft -.- they can't be that much mistakes. so idk, what do you guys think?
MD says on 7/Apr/14
Yes, end of story, Appe.
Appe4 says on 7/Apr/14
end of the story torres as high as ronaldo?
Bard says on 6/Apr/14
He was measured barefoot BY LASER at 185 cm. Any argument below 184 cm or above 186 cm is nonsense.
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 6/Apr/14
@chrisssss
I wouldn't worry about Nick, he's a troll. Your picture highlights how bad his were, he selects photos where Ronaldo looks shorter, he does this on various pages. However, Abebayor is 6'3", a strong 6'4" is too much for him. Google is always more trustworthy than a personal website.
chrisssss says on 5/Apr/14
And tbh i won't even put cr7 at 184cm, see im 180.3cm(exact 5'11) and i met him once, it was at night, and he had 2inches on me, so i think his minimum is 185cm
chrisssss says on 5/Apr/14
@nick Click Here
chrisssss says on 5/Apr/14
And adebayor is a strong 6'4 not 190cm, don't just google heights -.- Click Here
chrisssss says on 5/Apr/14
No guys CR7 IS 5'2!!! BLAH BLAH BLAH! -.- some people on this thread make no sebse, the guy, abd this is 100% true, was measured on CAMERA with a LAZER at got 185.1cm and that video was in the night. Cr7 is mininmum 185cm so @nick im guessing you can be tad more realistic?
Balrog says on 5/Apr/14
Doubt he dips below 6'1'', he seems a legit 6'1'' maybe 6'0.75'' but not less.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 5/Apr/14
I'd give Fernando Torrest 6'1 5/8 in the morning and 6'1 3/8 in the day. By 5'5" Justin Bieber:

Click Here

Looks 186.5 CM there.
Nick says on 5/Apr/14
:) you guys can argue all you want, it is very clear Adebayor has at least 10cm on C.Ronaldo whether you like or not images speak well at times Click Here Adebayor is listed at 190cm so do the math
Appe4 says on 5/Apr/14
@seahawksfan I perfectly agree with you about CR. So tell me your opinion about torres
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 4/Apr/14
Cristiano Ronaldo could probably reach 186 CM in the morning as he's 6'1" in the later morning. Here's my estimate for him:

When he first gets up: 186.5 CM/6'1 3/8
After being awake for an hour: 185 CM/6'1 1/8
Late morning: 6'1/185 CM
Early afternoon: 6'0 7/8/185 CM still
Later afternoon: 6'0 5/8/184 CM
Evening: 6'0.5/184 CM
When going to sleep: 6'0.4/184 CM

His 186.5 CM claim was likely his morning height in my opinion.
Appe4 says on 4/Apr/14
CR at 180 makes me laugh a lot... It' s clear you have never been interested on this topic.. The range of discussion is 184-186...certainly not if he is 180 (or 178)!!!
Nick says on 3/Apr/14
C.Ronaldo is nothing more than 180cm (perhaps a tad less like 178cm) here is with Adebayor Click Here who is listed at 190cm
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 3/Apr/14
@Appe4
Alonso standing very tall there, he's 1.81 m. Torres is standing loosely, 1.84 m.
Appe4 says on 1/Apr/14
Click Here if you see all photos of nando with xabi he never looks taller... So xabi is 185 or torres is 183?
Appe4 says on 1/Apr/14
Robben is a solid 180cm guy
chrisssss says on 1/Apr/14
@appe idk if you can tell, but if you look closey, his head is really slouched in that picture. And his hair almost always flat so :P
Appe4 says on 31/Mar/14
Click Here this for me is strange about torres... sometimes he seems 186 sometimes 182, too much difference
chrisssss says on 31/Mar/14
While were on it guys, how tall do guys think arjen roben is? He's listen 180cm and i've seen places that had or 181cm or even 183cm! How tall do you think roben is? To me he always looked in the 5'9 range, but more recently in bayern munich he looks taller, i say 178cm(5'10), how tall do you think he is?
MD says on 31/Mar/14
Where are you guys seeing an almost identical height between him and Torres? I've seen quite a few pics showing Ronaldo maybe even holding a full inch on Torres.
chrisssss says on 31/Mar/14
And here is torres with 188cm didier drogba! Click Here
chrisssss says on 31/Mar/14
And here is torres with 188cm didier drogba! Click Here
chrisssss says on 31/Mar/14
@appe now pay attention this pic, cr7 is only taller cuz of his footwear, other than that, they are the same! I think 186cm for both of them
Click Here
chrisssss says on 31/Mar/14
@Appe i'd say 186cm morning, 184cm night
Appe4 says on 30/Mar/14
so 183cm could be his evening height... Do you agree?
Appe4 says on 30/Mar/14
@chriss in my opinion CR is a full 186cm but torres could be it Only in the early morning (184-185 midday)... they are very close in height but CR looks taller due to a better posture than nando I think. Marko reus is an inch shorter than lewandowski so I bet between 182-181
chrisssss says on 29/Mar/14
@Appe4 i think the 186cm claim could very correct unno, cause if cr7 is 185.1cm(although i think cr7 is 186cm still), then i'd say torres us either the same(185.1cm) or maybe even the full 186cm . Torres akways looks very tall, and is not shorter than cr7. His height is tough to guess cuz the listing keeps changing, for the 2006 world cup he was listed 184cm, then for the euro2008 he was listed 186cm, in the the 2010 world cup his height was listed 185cm and on the chelsea official site origibally had him 183cm and now it sats 186cm. And well google has him 183cm....so like i said it's a hard one, but he's definitely in the 6'1 range. He also looked very close to didier drogba's height!. But while were on this, how tall do you think marco reus is? Rverywhere has him at 180-181, i'd say 182cm! What do you guys think?
Appe4 says on 28/Mar/14
I remember that on liverpool fc site was listed 185x78kg. Maybe 183 was his height when he player for atletico madrid
Appe4 says on 28/Mar/14
I ve just seen cris! Before he was listed 183 and 70kg (obviously false) and now 186x81kg that seems quite fair.
chris. says on 28/Mar/14
he is listed 186 on chelsea official.
Appe4 says on 26/Mar/14
@tor you can see many photos of torres with John terry where they seem exactly the same. I think there is no more than 1cm difference
Appe4 says on 26/Mar/14
the truth is that torres height is very difficult to guess!! he could be 183 or 186 (max) so I would go for an average for him: 184,5cm ( half inch less than CR7)
Appe4 says on 26/Mar/14

Torres - 1.84 m.
chrisssss says on 25/Mar/14
@Appe4 toorres is listen on the internet at 183cm, but he really stands taller alot of the 6fters, and for the ballon d or back in 2007 he was as tall as cr7!, im really not sure what height he is but was the same height as cr7 and taller than lampard and gerrard, i think torres is 6'1(185cm)
Tor says on 25/Mar/14
for me Torres is 6 ft, 182-183 cm (seems at least an inch under 185186 cm J. Terry)
Appe4 says on 25/Mar/14
in your opinion what s torres height?
Tor says on 24/Mar/14
Alonso is like Casillas, a strong 180, but no more, Ramos 1-2 cm taller
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 21/Mar/14
@chrisss
I can't find that medical. For me, Gerrard is 1.82 m and Alonso is 1.81. It looks like that in your picture too, of course, it's not a great photo.
chrissss says on 20/Mar/14

X. Alonso is not over 1.82 m.
chrissss says on 19/Mar/14
EVEYONE! he is not under 6ft! he was measured with a LASER, and was BAREFOOT, and his height was 185.1cm, that's his height MINIMUM, cause i read lasers sometimes measure off too much, but for a FACT hew is not below 6'1
chrissss says on 19/Mar/14
@sss actually ramos and arbeloa are both 183.4cm so they are solid 6fters!
Appe4 says on 19/Mar/14
ronaldo 186 torres 184 ramos 183 xabi 183 casillas 181
sss says on 17/Mar/14
so we have 5'11.75 Alonso, strong 5'11 in Iker 181 and Ramos the same as Xabi ? They always look the same height and Casillas ~2cm shorter.
chrisssss says on 16/Mar/14
Alonso was measured 182.3cm in his medical at real madrid, so we can put that one to rest as,well
chrisssss says on 16/Mar/14
Isco is not 173/174 -.- he was taller than david villa and was the same height as canales, exact 176cm for him
sss says on 15/Mar/14
Alonso is taller than Casillas, 2 cm maybe. 182-183 for Xabi ?
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 14/Mar/14
Alonso and Casillas are both 1.81 m.
James B says on 14/Mar/14
Yep would not argue under a solid 185cm
sss says on 14/Mar/14
I'm also curious about Isco. He's clearly not 176. more like 173-174. strong 5'8. But what about Xabi ? 183 flat ?
chrisssss says on 14/Mar/14
For the record, iker cassilas is not shorter than 5'11, more a weak 182cm or a 182cm with bad posture
chrisssss says on 10/Mar/14
Like someone mentioned, there are times when cr7 towers over players who are lidted 1-2cm shorter than him, like there was a time he looked 3 inches taller than bezema and higuin, and was a little raller than diego costa who is listed at 6'2, and it's impossible for a footballer to wear lifts in his boots during a game
chrisssss says on 10/Mar/14
Wait, why is rvp listed everywhere at 6'2?
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 9/Mar/14
chrisssss

You can't go with 185.8 cm, you don't know where that value has come from and I don't really know why Rob has even mentioned it. The value presented is 185.1 cm, so 185.8 cm is most probably erroneous or part of a mean.

sss

Accurate estimates.
sss says on 9/Mar/14
Januzaj is a strong 5'10/weak 5'11, just like Ronaldo was at 18. he's clearly grown since 2003... I remember an interview with him and Neville, he was the same as 5'10/11 Neville.
chrisssss says on 8/Mar/14
Junuzaj is 180cm, not 6ft, considering his age he might grow an inch or two, as fir cr7, the internet works in sunc with what other websites say, for ronaldo, i'd go with the 185.8cm, always looked a strong 6'1, and always appeared 186cm, he was not below 185cm
sss says on 8/Mar/14
Casillas - 181cm
Benzema -182 cm
Di Maria - 179 cm
Marcelo - 172
Modric 170
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 4/Mar/14
achello

Yeh. Looks 1.85 m, officially listed as 1.85 m, and measured with a laser at 1.85 m. I don't think there's any more debate. Ronaldo can now be used as a benchmark to estimate other players.
Ally says on 4/Mar/14
@achello yeah he's 185 now but Benzema is 187 and Casillas is 185 too...weird
achello says on 2/Mar/14
update: now he is listed 185 cm on Madrid's website
Appe4 says on 23/Feb/14
Ally: I bet 6' on januzaj... Is 3cm shorter than 186-7 cm van persie (Who is clearly not a 6 footer)
Nick says on 20/Feb/14
Ronaldo next to 186cm Kaka Click Here
Nick says on 20/Feb/14
looks same height as Torres listed at 183cm if he stands fully straight, Kaka clearly taller at 186cm Click Here
Nick says on 20/Feb/14
Kaka listed at 186cm appear to have always at least one full inch on Ronaldo therefore Ronaldo can be 183cm very tops.
Ally says on 19/Feb/14
Good picture Vibram, now I get why they all get listed so high, they probably get measured early in the morning, so if Ronaldo is 185 cm, others must be shorter than they're listed.

Casillas - 181cm
Benzema -182 cm
Di Maria - 179 cm(he has a footwear advantage in the pic)
Marcelo - 173 cm
Modric 171.5-172 cm

Heights of other players

Messi 168 cm
Ibrahimovic 193 cm
Marco Reus 180 cm
Van Persie 183 cm
John Terry 185 cm
Carles Puyol 176 cm
Neymar 174 cm

Im just wondering about Adnan Januzaj's height, sometimes he looks as tall as RVP which made me think that he's around 6ft, buy ive also seen some pics of him with David Moyes and he looked 5 cm shorter than him, so i guess he must be 180 cm minimum
chrissss says on 15/Feb/14
and btw didier drogba is 6'2!(188cm) not 6'1, and is barely an inch taller cr7
chrissss says on 15/Feb/14
ok calling cr7 a 180/183cm guy is LAUGHABLE, cr7 always looks significantly taller than 5'11/6ft guys, a verryyyyy tall person, clear 186cm im 5'11(180)and he was at least 2 inches taller than me when i met him, and he always looks taller than ramos, arbeloa, bale, benzema, alonso,and higuin, who are all 6ft+, real madrid has him listed at 186.5cm, clear 6'1 guy, definite 186cm
Jamal says on 15/Feb/14
Clearly needs an upgrade. He is 186cm at the very least and can look even 188cm, but I doubt he is that high. A beast of a player, though there is a certain 'midget' who is arguably better than him. Also Bale should be around the 185cm mark, as he looks very close to Cristiano in height.
c-mo175cm-night says on 8/Feb/14
186cm
Nick says on 5/Feb/14
now Kaka might be 186cm as listed and he has at least 3cm on Ronaldo Click Here Click Here
Nick says on 5/Feb/14
180cm/183cm range guy, even strong 183cm maybe, 185/6 not a chance.
Hypado says on 2/Feb/14
185/186 cm same height of me.
Vibram says on 30/Jan/14
achello says on 29/Jan/14
the weird thing for me is that in all pictures he towers above people who are supposedly only 1-2 cm shorter than him. On the picture below from Vibram, he towers above Casillas as if he is 10 cm taller. it would be the weirdest thing, but I wouldn'be very surprised if he was wearing lifts at times. Even if he is 186.5 and Casillas is 182, thats not a 4.5 cm difference. Look at the difference between Marcelo and Casillas, its about the same
-----

I remember years ago Casillas was listed at 180cm (5ft11) on many websites. He was about 22 back then so I doubt he's grown a full 4cm.

185.8cm Ronaldo standing taller than everybody, slightly thicker footwear.
Casillas: 182cm (not 185cm)
Benzema: 182cm (not 184cm)
Di Maria: 180cm (accurate)
Marcelo: 172cm (accurate)
Modric: 171cm (not 174cm)
Tor says on 19/Jan/14
no, for me there are no more than 2\3 cm between Ronaldo and Drogba
Nick says on 18/Jan/14
it might be Drogba is even 186/187cm, 4/5cm taller than Ronaldo in those pictures all of them (there're many more) so it makes Ronaldo 182/3cm tops, simply no way he's ever a full 185cm.
Appe4 says on 16/Jan/14
What end of story?! He's 100% between 185 and 186 cm: that's sure. 181 is ridicolous and how you can see these photos are not good to judge his height ( bad posture ); surely drogba is taller but not by 7cms.... 3cm is right
Tor says on 16/Jan/14
@Nick, in those pictures the difference Cr7-Drogba is only an inch, max 3 cm

p.s. Drogba is probably not a full 6'2, more 186-187 cm
Nick says on 15/Jan/14
hello take a good look at this one Click Here here is with Drogba who listed at 188cm so Ronaldo can't be over 181cm very very tops ;) end of story
Mitsakos big guy says on 14/Jan/14
Cristiano is 186cm am 201-3 between night day and he has the same as some of my friends
He can't be 180 or 183
Gilipollas says on 9/Jan/14
Met him. 185 no less. Perfect posture which makes him look even taller. Weird body shape tho'.
chrisssss says on 8/Jan/14
Omg, the OFFICIAL real madrid site has him listet at 186.5cm! Cr7 is around 6'2! Upgrade to 187cm and well tbh he does look quite tall, taller than most guys at 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Jan/14
Ronaldo can look 186-187cm range with Ferdinand
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Jan/14
Rio Ferdinand is 6ft3.25/191cm

@Rob

Doesn't Rio Ferdinand seem 6'3.5-6'4? What say you Rob?
[Editor Rob: here's a link to Ferdinand saying 6ft 3 although he can pull off looking 6ft 3.5 yeah]
Mathew says on 7/Jan/14
Arch Stanton says on 30/Dec/13
I think it is quite possible he was measured early in the morning 186.5 barefoot by Real and measured 185cm range on the laser later in the day. Either way he's a legit 6'1" guy, not even debatable. He does have an unsual shape MD which I think is from having some split ecto and meso traits. He's definitely more an ecto type though.

---

I agree with that theory. He's probably 186.5 morning, and goes down to 185 cm range mid day.
MD says on 7/Jan/14
Oh, here are the pics I was talking about at his wax figure unveiling, which they made every-so-slightly too tall. lol

Wow, so many of those squad photos posted below include players tip-toeing.

Ironically most of them aren't even short lol
Jordan says on 22/Dec/13
He's a strong 6'1" at his lowest. I'd give him 6'1.5" out of bed actually and 6'.75" at his lowest evening height.
Seahawksfan says on 19/Dec/13
6'1 is accurate, and I am ecto-meso whose under 21 and is 185-186 CM, so maybe I will grow to 6'3-6'4?
MD says on 13/Dec/13
I'm just seeing photos of him and his new wax figure in Madrid, and the thing is as tall as him but in a soccer stance with the legs a bit a part and him standing straight as a rod against it. They made the thing taller than him, basically. lol
Tor says on 10/Dec/13
possible, generally an ecto-meso bodytype grows later than average, till 18-20 yo
Bran says on 9/Dec/13
Cheers Tor, maybe he just grew a few cm in his later teens
Tor says on 8/Dec/13
@Bran
probably wrong, at least he was listed 183-184 already in 2003-2004
Bran says on 7/Dec/13
Anyone know if the rumours are true that he carried on growing till like 23-24, i read somewhere he was 5ft10.5 at 19, if this is true its pretty incredible !
Bosnia says on 7/Dec/13
I agree with you guys, he is measured 185 cm and end of the story. I'm just corious, maybe that is his height after hard training and other activities, so 186,5 listing at Real Madrid are probbably take on the morning...
The Exorcist says on 6/Dec/13
Was Ronaldo's 3D Laser Scan done barefoot?

Cos if it wasn't, 185 is too high.
[Editor Rob: yeah, but the value on the computer screen was 185.8, I'd go with a strong 6ft 1 for him still.]
Bard says on 4/Dec/13
He was measured by laser at 185 cm and change. Why is there even an argument here?
Ally says on 3/Dec/13
Dudes Ronaldo was listed as 185 cm on "Tested to the limit". There is no need to argue about this because it's his actual and real height

Swedish defender Mikael Lustig, who's listed 6'3" everywhere appeared to have at least 3 inches on Ronaldo.
Emil says on 15/Nov/13
This german guy is stupid in saying germans are taller, height is a matter of opinion. In my opinion 6 foot isnt tall, people constantly say '6 feet tall' which leads for people to believe '6 feet' is 'tall' if 5'8 is considered short, how is 6 foot tall?, if 5'10 is average? How is 6 foot tall. 40 percent of guys who beleive they are 5'10-11 are actually over 6 feet tall. '6 foot' isnt tall at all. Im 187cm and i find myself slightly above average, im from the UK, most of my friends are around 5'11-6'2 in my opinon 6'3 and up is tall. 6 foot was tall in like the 1930's what people dont seem to take in is average height increases by 5 inches per century.

Heavy trolling right there. Salute to thou, brethren.
MD says on 15/Nov/13
Kind of off topic, but is it just me or does this guy have short arms, or narrow shoulders, or both, given his general height and lankiness?

Something's odd about his physique that may explain why people usually don't guess his height correction. The proportions are strange.
Tor says on 12/Nov/13
@Bosnia
can be possible, nevertheless hardly believe that he's over 184\185
Bosnia says on 9/Nov/13
@Tor I dont think that laser scan measurment counts hair, Cristiano would be 188-190 then with his thick hair. I thinks that it measures body temperature and it showes real height without hair.
Tor says on 8/Nov/13
186 with hair, 184 real height ?
Bosnia says on 4/Nov/13
I believe that Christiano is 186 cms tall. I saw that show where he was measured 185,1 cm but I believe that show was filmed later during the day and probbably after hard training seassions in the morning, so Ronaldoprobably lost 1 cm. But he is strong 185, 186 for me quite possible too.
Ronnie says on 28/Oct/13
Broken link, rob...
And ever measured yourself on a 3d scanner with at least an inch hair vertically? If yes, were you taller than 5 8''? If you were, then Ronaldo's barely 6'

We don't use video games as references here, and your estimates are too low. Bale is a definite 1.83 m and Ronaldo is a definite 1.85 m, they look far too big to be any lower.

Hormone or not, at 19 yo, in euro 2004 and videogames (pes4), he was already listed 184 cm

For me Bale is 182 and Cr 183-184

Gareth Bale and Ronaldo are almost the exact same height. Maybe +/- 1 cm if that.

kaplaaa says on 17/Sep/13
Guys stop judging it from the handshake picture, in the game against Villa
real there was a 1-2cm difference when they celebrated Bale's goal.

Ronaldo is a solid 185cm (6"1) and Bale is a solid 183cm (6"0). It could be even more likely that Bale could be pushing 184cm, and Ronaldo 185.5cm.

There is no way that Ronaldo is less than 185cm I assure you, he is the definition of a solid 6"1.
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 17/Sep/13

I don't know about your exact values but I agree, there was definitely an extraordinary growth spurt after 18. I have to conclude some form of hormone therapy, this is supported by his strange body structure.

Rob he grew 3 inches when he was 18 he went from 5ft 10in too 6ft 1in was he a late bloomer late bloomers are late growers late growth spurts can be anything from 3 inches too 11 inches sometimes 12 inches 13 inches or even 14 inches.

CR7 is noticeably shorter than Kaką, who is 186cm. I believe 183-184cm fits him better.

And teej, most of people who claims to be 6' tall are 5'10 at best. Nobody tells to be shorter than he actually is, and wishes to be taller than he actually is. I'm 6'1.5 and I meet constantly people claiming to have my same size while definitely shorter. I don't think to be a freaking giant (since I'm not) but I'm taller than most of the people I meet.
