How tall is Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo's Height

6ft 1in (185 cm)

Portuguese footballer who has played for Sporting CP, Manchester United and Real Madrid. 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).

Judging by Rory's photo, I would actually say Ronaldo is 6"1.75, extremely close to 6"2ft.
He's just slightly taller then Terry in that picture and doesn't look any less tall then 2.5-3 inches to 6"5ft Cech

Tonight the great derby final! Let's see if we can notice differences in heights between Cristiano Torres and Bale...
Good match and Aupa Atleti !;)
Rory said on 27/May/16
This pics always been a good illustration of 6'1 for Ronaldo. In between 6ft Lampard and 6'1.5 John Terry.

@James look at the video of 23rd May some messages below. He is similar to Bale
James said on 26/May/16
@plus I didn't want to sound rude or dogmatic. Of course, you can argue Benzema is 183 cm or even 183.5 cm. But legit 184 cm? I doubt it.
James said on 26/May/16
@plus Stop saying Benzema is 184 cm because it is ridiculous. He is around 183 cm, as demonstrated when he is compared with Bale and Ramos. He is not a legit 184 cm guy.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 26/May/16
I also think 183cm is not a dwarf height, and not because I m around this height ;-).
Personally I think @175 cm heights guesses are too low: certainly I can't assume Benzema is 180cm after a match or Torres 182cm after a match.
The lowest I can accept for them are respectively 182cm and 183cm.
Cristiano at 183cm is impossible even after a match. I ve always heard from people who are 181-182-183cm range and who met Cristiano that he "towered" them.
Rory said on 26/May/16
Rob, how many cms difference would you say there is between Ronaldo and Benzema ?

Click Here
Editor Rob: in that photo not much, but overall ronaldo can look more than 1cm taller
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 25/May/16
@mordor If you think Ronaldo wakes up around 187,2cm, then he can measure around 185,5cm midday time (4h later). This is what I think he is. 184,5cm after a match.
If I was in Rob I wouldn't know if list him 185cm or 186cm (both correct in my opinion), he s between those two marks the larger part of the day.
175 cm said on 25/May/16
To celebrate the end I would recommend you to take a ruler and have a look how short 2cms are. It's 1/6 of a forehead. I wouldn't say you're awful at "gaging" heights but you're definitly not good point.
plus said on 25/May/16
@Rory people saying a striker is a dwarf at 184 cm?? Trolling. David Villa is 174 and has been one of the best strikers. And what about Argentinian players? What about Neymar 173.5 and Bebeto 174, Romario 167... and Messi 169??
175 cm said on 25/May/16
Yes. I'm fine with that.
mordor said on 25/May/16
I am sure Ronaldo is 4cm taller than Benzema.Anyway thats my guess.Ronaldo is almost in 6ft2 range.Check him with guys like Maldini,Vidic,Dudek or Diego Costa.
The only guy that towers over him is Mikael Lustig(listed as 189cm), the swedish defender and that really impressed me.This guy Lustig is the tallest 189cm guy that i've seen.
Have already posted pics with these players next to Ronaldo before in this topic that show Ronaldo is 186,5cm midday height.In morning maybe 187,2cm.
Rory said on 25/May/16
Lol Benzema is not a dwarf for a striker..actually I think 183-4 is arguably perfect for a forward as its not so tall that you struggle with agility, pace etc like say a 6'3 striker might, but not so short that you can't compete in the air for crosses like you might struggle to at 5'9 say.
Rory said on 25/May/16
In this picture I'd say Ramos and Benzema 183, Zidane 184.5.

Click Here

Btw I think this picture is a good one to compare Benzema, looks a solid 183 with 186.5 Pepe and Ramos and Alonso, ignore Ronaldo as he's on his tip toes so looks 189, but the rest are all stood normally.

Click Here
Rory said on 25/May/16
Actually I'm not sure Zidane is just 183.5, I'd say 184.5 myself, he's another one with loose posture I think, his neck particularly, like Benzema in a way seems to bow down often, and again like Benzema he has hair disadvantage.
Rory said on 24/May/16
@Mordor how can you possibly guess Benzema at 182, and then say Ronaldo is 186-7, when never in their 7 years as teammates has the difference looked that much, at most and I mean at most Ronaldo is an inch taller than Benzema...the rational values here are Kaka 186, Ronaldo 185, Bale 184 and Benzema 183. Those guesses match the difference in height between them. @175 lets just agree to disagree, you clearly won't accept my opinion on the players as stated above, and I certainly am not prepared to accept your guesses, so best to drop it.
Rory said on 24/May/16
@James I agree with all of those values, 175 you're awful at gaging heights, and your Latest pics are predictably unreliable..just go back and click on every pic I've posted and then apologise later when you see the light.
plus said on 24/May/16
@175 cm No, the values are not self reported. I said already Marcelo was signed at 18 years old in Real Madrid. He grew up!!! Kaka could be measured later than Ronaldo, and Ronaldo early and forcing the posture!!! It is possible. Only the decimals listings are worthy, so don't take in consideration another ones. And remember the listings are all the first time they signed with the team!!

By the way Ribery is solid 171 cm tall
James said on 24/May/16
I agree with most estimations here, with one exception: Zinedine Zidane.

Look at these two videos, where you can see Zidane compared to other players:

No more than 4" on Ribéry though having an advantage in stance.
Everyone has to accept that the values on were self-reported not measured! If measured Kaka wouldn't end up shorter than CR7 and everyone had have his "accurate (mms)" lisiting. Another example Marcelo 171.8, no way if Benzema 184.1!!! Click Here - no more than 3"

Guys are gettin' ridiculous on here. Arguing Ronaldo is 185,5-184 and still insisting 184-183 for Benzema (in fact a dwarf for a striker) is absolutely non sense! This player wouldn't have any reason to inflate his height (billed 187) if he really stands 6ft 0.5. Yeah Rory now say it's the angle or footwear...

Editor Rob: there's not really much between these guys

Again, Benzema closer to cam. There are easily 2cms. And we don't see the footwear...

There's no evidence John Terry got measured 6ft 1.5, in his first season he got billed 6 foot flat.
mordor said on 24/May/16
Here is cr7's topic guys.Stop comparing bale and benzema ffs.Benzema 182cm Bale 18,3cm-184cm.Ronaldo 186cm-187cm.Lustig 189-190cm.
plus said on 23/May/16
anyway Kaká's height is very tricky, sometimes he looks 185,5 sometimes he looks 186,5... I am not able to calculate, I have seen pictures where he is definitely not taller tan Cristiano, and another pictures where he is 1 cm taller clearly
plus said on 23/May/16
Here there is a video clip where they stand for the Official photoshoot in Real Madrid. Zidane, Bale, Arbeloa 184 cm. Cristiano no less than 185,5, yes he has very good posture.

Click Here

About Aduriz I have targeted at 182 cm, and Kaká and Federer are similar, around 185,6. Perhaps in the pics together the shoes are different, and posture too. Kaká with Maldini looks slightly shorter than him. I have Maldini at 186,5

@175, frankly every single one of those guesses is way off, not one single guess has any validity or substance I'm afraid. Benzema at 180 is absurd, Ronaldo at 183 is lazy inaccuracy and Ferdinand at 188 is tosh as I've met him and know he isn't. The trouble is when I know factually you've under guessed Ferdinand who I've met by 1.25 inches approx, I rly then can't rely on any other guesses you make, which is just as well because they're all useless.
Johno said on 23/May/16
@Rory, yeh John Terry is taller than Neil Robertson but i don't believe more than 0.75-inches and Neil looks about 4-inches taller than Rob, around 6'0 lowest and probably close to 6'1 in the morning ------ ~ 6'0.5, average as listed.

Thus, Terry could be 6'2 in the morning and 6'1 at night, he was measured at 6'1.5 and he did seem to have the edge on Will Ferrell. Ferdinand looks 6'3 as listed.

John Terry 6'1.5
175 cm said on 23/May/16
Since Rio is closer to the cam I'd say ~6cms on Bale (shoes?).
After a Match +-1cm:
188 Ferdinand
183 Ronaldo
182 Bale
182 Torres
180 Benzema
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 23/May/16
@Tunman I instead would rule out anything under 186cm for Kakŕ ( I think 186cm is his lowest).
@Rory yeah you re right. Benzema and Ramos are identical to me.

What do you think is Aritz Aduriz height? He s listed tipically 182cm and looks it.
mordor said on 23/May/16
Ok.And?I said lustig legit 189cm.But dude compare him with cr7.Who cares about Majstorovic?Here is cr7's topic.u get me?
Rory said on 22/May/16
@175, I notice Ferdinand looks 1.5 inches taller than John Terry in that pic you posted, so if Ferdinands 6'2 presumably you think Terry's 6'0.5...which would be very strange as he's been listed 6'1.5 or 6'2 throughout his whole career, and looks an inch taller than 6'0.5 Neil Robertson who Robs met and has a listing on this site.....oh btw I'm guessing you think Gareth Bales a weak 5'11 then ?

Click Here
Rory said on 22/May/16
Yh James those guesses sound spot on, you could argue Benzemas 183/183.5, and some might go as high as 184.5 for Bale. I can understand why people would guess lower for Benzema though as he doesn't stand well and his skinhead hairstyle puts him at a disadvantage compared to say Bale and Ronaldo. Generally I think easiest to remember for "the BBC" is Benzema solid 183, Bale solid 184 and Ronaldo solid 185cm.
Rory said on 22/May/16
@175, i promise you ive not met many if any footballers, but Ferdinand is one I have seen up close and i promise you he's minimum 6'3..So you can post a whole load of pics of him looking under 6'3 if you wish, but the facts for me wont change.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 22/May/16
In my opinion there is more height difference between Bale and benzema than Ronaldo and Bale
175 cm said on 22/May/16
Didn't you recognize the angle of the camera in the first pic of "Rory", it's crooked... You can't judge from such a photo. It's more than crap for a fair estimate.
In "this another picture" that you found we see the real difference which is more like 1". But your pic is crap as well. Judging from this Bale would measure taller than CR7.

Accept that Benzema is in the 5ft 11 range... Get over it ;)
Tunman said on 21/May/16
Would be interesting if we compared him to Federer,now these are two guys that are legit 6'1 possibly few mms under but no more.
I still wonder how he was 0,9cm taller than Kaka even considering that he cares about posture...but maybe Kaka could be the same as him?Btw I wouldn't argue anything under 185 for Kaka
@Rory and 175
Dipping under 6' is obviously impossible for CR7 but something like 184,5 isn't impossible for an absolute lowest.I just watched a vid about Cristiano competing against a pro sprinter who was listed at 175.At one point the sprinter was exactly reaching cristiano's eyebrows so about 4" difference.Solid 185 IMO.
James said on 21/May/16
@Rory Now I agree with you, 184 cm is too high and 182 cm definetly too low for Karim.

In the shoots of Ramos and Benzema is clear Benzema is similar to Ramos, 0.5 more Benzema than Ramos maximum!! No more in any case. I think Benzema is 183.5, Ramos 183 and Casillas 182. Yes Benzema's posture is not usually good, as in the case of Raul... who I think he is 179 but he looks 177-178 due to slouching

Compare Ferdinand to measured Ibrahimovic (194cms). There's definitly more than just 1".

As I've said before, you have no idea.
So next thing is that your too silly to measure your own height if you really met Rio what I doubt...
175 cm said on 21/May/16
Rory it's okay if you search 1h for a pic, it happens.
Rory said on 21/May/16
@James, nice try but I'm sorry literally everything you posted just shows Benzema stood poorly, be it head down slightly or he's slouching, certainly it's evident in that video I can clearly see Bale standing strongly by the tension in his stance, whereas Benzema just looks casual. For the record I don't think Benzema is taller than Bale by any means, in fact I think Bale would measure maybe a quarter of an inch taller than Benzema, I just dispute you trying to say Benzemas 182, because he isn't he's minimum 183, and I imo 183.5, whilst Bale is 184. You need to understand postural differences, two men can be a similar height when measured, but if one typically stands strongly whilst the other typically slouches, it's clear one will appear taller.
Rory said on 21/May/16
@175cm...glad you said that, why ? As I've met Rio Ferdinand and he's minimum 6'3 perhaps even 6'3.5. Definitely not 6'2.
175 cm said on 20/May/16
Just compare him to Rio Ferdinand who claimed 6ft 2.5 and was billed 6ft 2 on another occasion. You see a difference of at least 2 inches.
James said on 19/May/16
This video is the PROOF that Bale is taller than Benzema

Click Here

Pause the video at the min. 17.54. Benzema has a perfect posture and he still looks 2 or 1.5 cm sorther than Bale. If Bale is 184 cm, then Benzema is 182 or 182.5 cm, a bit under the 6 foot mark.

Guess who's the shorter one in the BBC:

I have seen no evidence of Benzema being taller than Ramos, in fact the opposite seems to be plausible. Ramos looks the same height as him or even 0.5 cm taller in these 3 pictures (both of them share the same posture):

I see the "Benzema has normally a bad posture" claim as an excuse to ignore all the videos and pics showing that Benzema is clearly shorter than 184 cm. IMO Benzema is 182.5 cm MAXIMUM.
Rory said on 19/May/16
175, just accept the pic dismantled your argument, its okay, it happens. The fact is that picture firstly had all three men stood on the burnabeu pitch, so about as flat and even a surface honed by groundsmen as you could get, it would feature all three men in equal footwear(football boots). All three men appear to have similar posture, stood upright, no one obviously slouching etc. The camera angle is front facing to all of them, no one has an obvious advantage. The fact is its one pic 175cm but its the perfect storm to tell me exactly the difference between them, you wont find a better one. More chance for me Ronaldo is 6'1.25 than 6'0.5, i disagree here with Appe too, im not convinced even after a match in extra time Ronaldo would get down to 184...i think his absolute lowest would be 184.5-5cms. As for Ronaldo being 6ft or "under the magic 6ft mark"...good grief.
manny said on 19/May/16
My dad's 6ft1 measured by the army and I got to see Cristiano at a game and my dad was wearing flat canvas shoes and he was wearing Nike air max such give an inch and he was at least 2-3cms taller than my dad so he is definatrly 1.85 no doubt he's big I'm I'm 1.82 and he towers me
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 19/May/16
@175cm I think it's 95% sure Ronaldo never deeps under 184cm, and you are saying he can well deep under 183cm.
I agree with the opinion of him being 184-184,5cm just at the end of the day after a 90min match.
mordor said on 19/May/16
Lustig listed 189cm but he is clearly taller 4 cm from r7.
175 cm said on 18/May/16
Since a laser can not differentiate between hair and skull it is very likely that Man. Utd. measured him at 184cms.
But he could well dip under the "magic" 6ft mark.

Rory argues based on what? on one pic out of a hundred... dunno whether the ground is flat or not, the camera angle, posture... and so on

Up straight Benzema looks similar to Remy, Gourcuff,Abidal and Zidane all guys at or near 6'1. Hes exactly the same height as Higuain (minimum 6ft) quick google search in fact showed me that Benzema edges Ramos...182 ? With poor posture maybe, but up straight ? Literally nil chance of 182.

Rory either you're blind or you have no idea about height in general.
Rory said on 12/May/16
There's no way Benzema is 5'11.5, because if he was that would make Bale a weak 6ft, and Ronaldo just a strong 6ft which just isn't in the case...i think Benzena looks a strong 6ft when stood tall..i believe the 184.1cm listing for him if measured at around midday.
James said on 12/May/16
@Appe 6ft 0.5 I personally don't see Benzema as a 184 cm guy.
Probably we will agree that Ramos is 182.6 cm, a weak 6 foot. I see Benzema slightly shorter than Ramos, but very similar. I don't want to sound dogmatic, it's only my opinion.
When Benzema was playing for the Olympique Lyonnais he was listed as 182 cm. Judging photos and videos, I don't think he has grown since then. And I don't think that's an optical illusion because he has a bad posture.

He looks 0.5 cm shorter than Ramos:

He also looks 4 cm shorther than Kaká (186 cm):

In MY view, Benzema is 182 cm (5 ft 11.5 in)
175 cm said on 11/May/16
If so, Kaka got measured 185.6 in the evening - he towers CR7
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 11/May/16
If these are morning (10am) heights it can be possible; the only strange thing is that Kaka was measured 185,6cm but he's surely not smaller than CR (maybe CR forced his height a bit during medical? It's possible since we know how much he cares about it). Ramos and Benzema listings are accurate to me even if usually Benzema doesn't edge Ramos, but that's because Benzema has a poor posture while Ramos not.
Torres: what we know is that he edges Gerrard and Ramos who are both around 183cm (weak). We also know he is smaller than 186cm guys like Thomas Muller and Diego Costa.
Probably he's exactly in between these two marks (183cm and 186cm). He gives the impression to be taller when alone.
If you would go with 183,5cm for him, I instead suppose he measures that low only in the evening after a match.
Tunman said on 8/May/16
Ronaldo was officially listed at 186,5 for Real Madrid,Benzema 184,1 and Ramos 183,2 and so on.In my opinion these heights were definitely measured,probably in the morning which could make sense.After all Benzema generally looks a good 6' and a good 2 cms shorter than Ronaldo and quite similar to Ramos...possibly Ramos could be somewhere between 5'11.75-6.
Torres is an interesting case he could look anywhere from 183 to 185 but I would have said more 183-4 in my opinion like 6'0.25"...I think he won't be much bigger than 182-3 Steven Gerrard.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 2/May/16
@Rob Do you think there is a possibility that Fernando Torres measures taller than Ronaldo lunch time? I am talking of fractions of course.
Editor Rob: no, I'd be surprised if Torres measured as tall as Ronaldo
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 2/May/16
@alexbigguy yeah I can go with your estimation of Ramos, Xabi Alonso and Gerrard who are all legit 6ft but not strong ones.
1cm over them Lampard, Bale, Torres and Lewandowski.
Rory said on 1/May/16
Id have thought on a day without football his low would be pretty near 6'1 exactly. After an night time champs league match for example its a would be his absolute say 184.5 would be a reasonable guess in that case. Ronaldo to me always looks minimum 6'1 though, when i compare him to other player listings be it 6'2 or 5'11 guys etc he usually if anything ends up looking 6'1 minimum sometimes even 6'1.5. That's why ive just never rly accepted the idea of him being under 6'1, because there's so few examples on and off the pitch of where he does.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 1/May/16
@plus You are probably right. What I mean is that if ramos measures a fraction over 183cm in morning medicals he probably has a lowest under 183cm (and maybe closer to 182cm).
I would put Fernando Torres height exactly in the Middle between Ronaldo and Ramos:
Ronaldo 185,5cm
Torres 184,2cm
Ramos 183cm
alexbigguy said on 30/Apr/16
i agree with ramos at 183...not a solid 183 but he ends the day around 182,8 i guess...2cm more than Beckham....exactly like gerrard and xabi alonso
Johno said on 30/Apr/16
I remember he was listed at 6'0 on ESPN but i believe he was rounded down. I think when he was in Manchester Utd he was measured at 184cm ie 6'0.44 or ~ 6'0.5 as measured for his wax figure to. There is a bit to much evidence to not include these measurements as part of his typical range throughout the day.

I know he makes alot of celebrities like Jonathon Ross seem shorter, he had an solid inch on him but this says more about their height rather then his ------- his height more-or-less solidified.

When i measure any celebrity against Ronaldo, i realise he is both 6'1 and ~ 6'0.5, it is just that these other celebrities are alot shorter then they are listed.
Johno said on 30/Apr/16
@Apple, i have just given him a range; like most individuals, his height can vary and thus for medicas to. He can effectively any height depending on when you measure him. His spine seems quite long hence he could probably lose 1-inch.

I had always stuck to 6'1 judging by that previous laser measurement but judging by the latest measurements by tussauds, we have to seriously take these measurements into account because they seem fairly accurate; they have to be, otherwise the bottom of his chin would not align with the top of his head for example and the wax figure would come out all distorted.

The top of his head was measured at 185cm thus if you deduct the footwear; Nike Vapours being around 0.75 inches, you get ~6'0.25. The stance he is in, is most likely the stance his wax figure will be i i.e. a normal snapshot stance. If you want to check how much height he will be losing, see Rob's videos on stances or do one yourself and you will see he is not losing much thus, it is stands to reason that he is around 6'0.5 for any possible adjustment to stance.

He can both be 6'1 and 6'0.5 although, lasers at times do take hair into account.

He is probably around 6'1 earlier on and around 6'0.5 later on.

Beckhan claims 5'11 for himself but i believe he could be 179 or 180cms.

6'1, 6'1.25 - 6'0.5

Rory you're underestimating the effect of sports. If he had a workout this day he should stand close to his bare minimum and 184cms or 6ft .5 sounds reasonable. But 6ft .25 is still possible after a soccer match...

Well... 183.5 in morning medical tests being more precise
plus said on 29/Apr/16
@Appe 6ft 0.5 I'm sure of Sergio Ramos 183 cm. All decimal listings height for Real Madrid use the same figures. They are when they were signed for the team, that is why Benzema was always listed 184.1 and Ramos 183.2. Ramos was signed at 19 years old, so 183.2 is in the morning back then. I am sure he is now 183.7 in the medicals
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 29/Apr/16
@Johno his feet are pretty separate; could be easily 2cm taller if they were close. Anyway I think we should discuss about if he' s 185 or 186cm and not between 185 and 184cm.
If he was 184cm all listed players' listings would be wrong and I don't think it's the reality.
For example, if Ronaldo was 184cm:
Pepe would be 185cm
Ramos would be 181,5cm
Bale 182,5cm
Beckham 179cm

Zero chance this could be real.
Rory said on 28/Apr/16
Both Ramos and Ronaldo are solid 6ft and 6ft1 men respectively, id be totally unconvinced either fell much under their marks even at lowest.
Johno said on 27/Apr/16
His Shoes; Nike Vapours tend to give around ~0.75 inches thus without them he would be ~6'0.25 and with adjusted stance 6'0.5 in this video.
Johno said on 27/Apr/16
His shoes in that video give him between 0.5-0.75 inches but his feet could be a little closer thus 185cm or 6'1 minus 0.5 inches = 6.0.5, was his measured height at that part of the day; most likely minimum height and 6'1 or so his morning height.

This sort-of puts off my measurements for other celebrities that i have compared with him, although it does explain why David Beckham can look as tall as he does next to him at times but that they be more due to footwear.

Ronaldo 6'0.5-6'1.25

Are you so sure of 183cm for Sergio Ramos? In my opinion he holds the mark for a part of the day, but I would say 182cm dinner time.
plus said on 22/Apr/16
@Appe 6ft 0.5 @175 cm

I can't see the writings in the paper. I think it's imposible to see. Bust he must have been measured around 185 cm with 1.5 sneakers and not the 100% perfect posture and the minimal margin of the tape. Evening height must be 185 cm barefoot exactly, and he sports a good posture, so when he is measured is the same as his normal posture. 185.5 cm can be perfectly in his morning medical tests. I would say Sergio Ramos is exactly 2.5 cm shorter than him
Rory said on 21/Apr/16
Yh its a thin shoe in that video, and i reckon he could measure taller than that(hes stood well, but his feet are further apart than usual id say when youd measure) what it does do though is reaffirm him at 6'1 range i think.

Appe I think you need to have a big screen shot of it - Rob could help us... But I suppose they got the values from Madame Tussaud's so 185cms are quite accurate.
Further I don't think he put of his "soccer sneaker" or whatever because you see them measuring chin height or so as well in sneakers...
Editor Rob: at the end of the clip you can see the old ruler beside tape measure...I'm sure he's still in the football boots, which aren't that thick really. The stance might be a little fraction less than a measured stance though, so near 185cm is still possible. The margin of error for a ruler measurement like that could be a few mm's.

@plus Yes, they were my morning-evening estimations.
If I take into consideration players you named before, midday heights:

Ronaldo: 185,5cm
Federer: 185cm
Kaka: 186cm
Maldini: 186,5cm

Ronaldo has the best posture among these guys, that's why he can look 186 or more and Kakŕ never looks over 186.
What is 100% sure to me is that Kakŕ is taller than both Ronaldo and Federer as many photos show.
plus said on 23/Mar/16
@Appe 6ft 0.5 I guess the brackets you put indicate morning out of bed - night. In my opinion his medical tests and most part time of the day Cristiano is 185.5 cm. Kaka 186 cm. Medical test for Kaka at 185.6 could be right for that moment. Kaka could be as tall as Federer (the famous pictures and angle-posture didn't favour Federer). Cristiano's 186.5 of the Real Madrid list could be real, but Cristiano forcing a bit his posture while measuring. Maldini would measure a bit over Kaka, at 186.5 cm

Why would a 6'1 need to tip toe? Could he be under it and feels small?? Doesn;t make sense
Editor Rob: once is forgiveable, but several times is a sign...

Maybe he just likes to look bigger in these photos. Sometimes people don't really pay as much attention to the feet as they do to the overall picture or the faces, so many people probably wouldn't even register he was on his tip-toes.

Of course on this site in the past it's been brought up and now there's that article about it, more people will see it.

He is 1,85m, the thing is that he cares a lot about looking taller than the rest, for example in the UEFA awards 2015 he looked absurdly tall next to 1,81m Luis Suarez appart from that he uses to stand on his toes in the team pics and when he is next to a very tall person

An inaccurate laser would tend to give you more height since it might not be able to differentiate between flesh and hair thus, your hair is partially added. I fail to see how an laser is inaccurate where you give less height; the laser cannot just skip matter or organic material.
Johno said on 3/Feb/16
It is odd people continue to give Ronaldo an estimated height of towards 6'2 even though he was laser measured.

If want to increase his height tbere is a bigher chance of him being lower then 6'1. If you have ever had your height measured by lasers, like some of them height/bodyfat monitors you in many modern malls in the UK, you will notice they tend to give a higher height then if you were to use the aerosol method against the wall. Also, there is good chance that Ronaldo's height was not measured in the evening more rather afternoon or morning. So you see, 6'1 is a decent measure and fair. If he were to come Rob's abode and subsequently measured in the evening, don't be surprised if he was measured at 6'0.5 rather then 6'1.5.

I've seen several pics and I can say definitely that Zidane was 185 cm at his peak (not 184,5), the problem today he has a loose posture, if he stands with good posture he can look just 185 cm yet. In the picture below with Cristiano, I'm sure Cristiano was a Little tip toeing and Zidane with not maximum posture. Cristiano cares much about height and always is with the perfect posture in all pics standing stretched. Anyway, I am very sure that Cristiano is 186 cm and Bale 184 cm

and just in the end before the replay pause the video to see him next to thomas muller!(186cm).One of the rare opportunities to see him with a legit 186cm guy.But dont forget to pause the video(muller walks sideways from cr7 but even from a bad angle u can see there almost if not the same!).In my opinion after that i beleive cr7 is 186-187cm.Not less than that.Well take a look here: Click Here

@Appe 6ft 0.5 I would say Isco is no less than 175.5. He is practically the same height as Koke (listed 176). Arda Turan looks similar to them and he is measured live in a clip at 176 cm. No less than 173.5 cm for Marcelo (which had 171.9 listing...I guess at 17-18 years old) and around 175 for Griezmann. Curious thing about players is I don't know why internet leaks undermeasured figures. Perhaps listings at 16-17 years old were the heights listed got by clubs at first instance?
MD said on 25/Jan/16
@appe 6ft0.5, I'm also a bit surprised everyone seems to be underestimating his weight. It's not like he's a professional bodybuilder, but I'd genuinely be shocked given his height if it wasn't closer to 180lbs than 170lbs.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 24/Jan/16
@5ft9.25 Kros at 179cm is simply wrong... he s very close to sergio Ramos and all here agree that Ramos is in the 6ft range. Toni Kroos could be 181cm or 182cm (I think 182cm fits him better). I agree with you on other players.
@Josh thanks! I hope you get the body you want ;-)
5ft 9.25 said on 23/Jan/16
In the second pic Ronaldo appears solid taller than Bale, what he is in fact. We can conclude that the angle is too bad for a good compare.
And yeah, Kroos is tip-toeing because in your first new pic I can see max. 1inch!
Leverkusen listed Toni Kroos 180cms than he decided to claim the 182 out of bed. Malaga billed Isco 174cms.
Kroos 179 (compare to Mertesacker/Neuer)
James 177-176 (" to CR7 and 6ft Bale)
Isco 173
At Ballon d'or Kroos used to wear lifts!
Josh said on 23/Jan/16
Rob, agreed not a fan of tattoos, at least anything more than a small, innocuous ones. Earrings on a guy are my limit :)

Appe, maybe you're right, not sure...I just think he look similar to plenty of ufc fighters when they're cut up to make weight, like the 6'1 170 ones. His 176 listing would probably be before the season started, before he got super cut up for a magazine cover. Normally, I'd say 176 would be right because as a soccer player, you would guess him to have big legs, but his legs actually look lean and just ripped. Otherwise his body looks really lean and thin.

I believe you though and there's a good chance he just does stay like that year round. Whatever it is, he has a very good body that I'm trying to emulate (around the same height and in the 170s and 10 percent bodyfat) and yours sounds great as well.

@Josh 80kg for Ronaldo seem perfect,; he would be thinner to be "only" 77kg at 185/186cm. Remember that muscles weigh more than fat.
185,5cm x 80kg is what I bet.
I have the same kind of body as him (not to praise myself of course but I have 9% body fat), and I know that when I am in the shape he is actually I am between 77kg and 78kg (but I am 2cm smaller). That's why I don't believe he is 77kg, he probably weighed that when played for Man UTD

Thabks Rob, I agree. I think his height and body is perfect to attract women, what do you think?

Ok Bale appears a bit taller than CR7 in this pic. But the angle is quite bad and you don't know how even the ground is. I wouldn't rule out that some guys (Kroos?) are tip-toeing.. Also you can argue that Zidane lost a 1cm due to his age.

6'1 is not 185 cm but 185.4. 6"0.85 is 185 cm. So Cristiano is 6'1.10 easily rather than 6'0.85. 6'1.10 can be considered 6'1 practically. In my opinion he is 185.5 so 6'1 can suit him but with that detail.

actually the average for spanish youngsters is 175-6 so it's not average tall it's average.Also ideal height is more or less the same for most European countries,somewhere between 6' and 6'2.
Now about Cristiano 6'1 seems fine.I just watched the video of him with that spanish sprinter listed 175 I could have sworn there was exactly 4" between them with optimal angle.Quite interesting he looks no more than 2 cms taller than Gareth Bale.6'0.75 or 6'1,depending wether Bale is a fraction over 6' or not.

Ronaldo Looks Like 186cm..With a Good Posture
plus said on 28/Nov/15
@Rory I agree, I consider tallish in Spain begins at 176 cm (average-tall) (I don't mean Sports but real life), 180 cm-185 cm tall, 186 cm or more "very tall", 191 cm and over really tall, 195 cm and more extremely tall. If you are 190 cm you can't be thin. It's better to be 175 cm and thin than 190 cm and thin complexion. 190-193 cm slim slender is good. People look upon to footballers, models, actors.. but guys in real life there are many around 190 cm, that are very thin and strike you and are not seen as ideal.
mordor said on 28/Nov/15
In any country ideal height is 186cm-194cm.Ronaldo is 186-187cm.
Rory said on 24/Nov/15
Ideal heights depend on what country you are Madrid 184 is close to perfect. In London 184 is a decent height but not rly ideal, 188-189 is.Id say Ronaldo at 6'1 is the perfect height in Spain/ Holland however, hes only upper average.
Willes190 said on 20/Nov/15
I think Ronaldo claims 6'2, buy he would probably like to be 6'3. Imo the best height range tor a male is 184-190cm
appe 6ft0.5 said on 16/Nov/15
I think if someone on a TV program asked him his height, he would answer he's 187cm. People well know he is about 185-186cm.
188cm is the first height, if he answers this, for which he would lose his credibility (while a good chunk of people would trust him about 187cm).
6ftMagician said on 9/Nov/15

My guess is he would probably claim 6'3'', knowing he isn't crazily far off in shoes.

Not knocking Ronnie, but do you really think 6'2'' would satisfy an ego that demands a larger than life appearance (rhetorical question)?
Rory said on 1/Nov/15
Im not sure ronaldos ever claimed a height, would be interesting to hear, a lot of men his height (6'1 solid)would claim 6'2, i think hed be one of them.
mordor said on 29/Oct/15
I can tell you that most men don"t shrink more than 1,7 cm during the day, even with strenuous workout(match day).Keep in mind that CR7 has perfect posture and strong upper and lower body that help him to restrict his shrinkage.So if his max is 187,5 cm, his lowest is about 185,8cm.So his average height is:186,7cm.
[Editor Rob: Jenny used to shrink a full inch, she loses a bit less than an inch now, but that isn't uncommon.

in fact look at This short study with 3 adults and a kid. The 59 year old man in the study went from my height out of bed and lost 2.8cm on's worth reading that page as the participants did the measurements several times a day for over 50 days.

So you have 2.8cm loss in A, 2.5cm in B and 2cm loss in C and D (a kid).

He is in fact 190 cm so with all the proof provided by him we can tell Ronaldo is at least 186 cm. 187 cm in the morning and after a match he ends the day at 185.8 as showed in the laser scan.

Rory said on 28/Oct/15
If he's a legit 186cm he'd definitely wake up at more than 187cm...Ultimate guess IMO is 187.5cm wake up height, 185.5cm night height, his absolute low after a night match is probs 185cm flat.
mordor said on 24/Oct/15
At last one man that i almost agree with.We can agree though that Mandzukic never passes 189cm range.My guess would be 188,5 cm for him.Maybe 189,5 in the morning.As for CR7 he is a legit 186cm dude.187cm when he wakes up though.

@carver Di Maria is a little bit taller than Ozil. Di Maria is 5,11: 180 cm. Now it's listed like that in PSG. "5,10" was some years ago and old listings. If Di Maria is 180 Ozil has to be like 179 cm. I say that because I have a picture with former Real Madrid player, Sergio Canales. He is a little taller than me (I am 176 cm). It was 2010 when he was 19 years old. Canales was listed 176 cm and now it's listed 179 cm. When I met him he could be 177 cm or 178 cm. Canales is slightly shorter than Ozil and Di Maria.

@Rory I agree with you, probably the best bet is 1,5 cm difference. Anyway I was saying I disagree with people who think there is an inch difference
Rory said on 5/Oct/15
I think Ronaldo can often look half an inch taller than Bale, no more though. Bale at 6'0.5, and Ronaldo at 6'1 is the most likely scenario. I don't think there's as little as 1 cm between them though, because even though the difference is slight its usually visible, so half an inch is more likely than a cm or less.

Tell me where is the inch difference between Bale and Ronaldo, it' s clear to me that the difference is around a cm.
The cases ar two:
a) Ronaldo is a flat 185 and Bale a legit 184 (night heights)
b) Ronaldo is a legit 186 and Bale is around 185

actually I wouldn' t exclude the option b), seen many photos of Bale next two legit 6ft as Benzema and Arbeloa, and he looks taller (not a fraction taller)
Rory said on 2/Oct/15
Worth mentioning that pic with prince William was after the 2009 champs league final, so he would have been at his absolute low. Yet still looks a comfortable 6'1 there..i think you could argue 6'1.25 for Ronnie...6'1/6'1.25 you could argue either.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 2/Oct/15
My bad, it was Hemsworth and Harry. I don't think that Prince Williams is 6'2 3/4". More like 6'2 1/4"-6'2 1/2".

He would never measure up at 6'2". 6'1 1/4" is just as believable as 6'1" is based off of the measurement, but I would still go with 6'1".

can you measure Raul Gonzalez??
He claimed 180 cm like Figo (I think Figo is 179 cm ), but I think Raul is 178 cm like Puyol and Cesc Fábregas (badly measured 175 cm... junior times I guess)
6ftMagician said on 27/Sep/15
187 too high.
184 too low.
Either 186 or 185 is a correct listing, as he spends the majority of the day balancing between both heights.
Rory said on 15/Sep/15
Well no the whole point of what im saying is he was measured 185.8 in the afternoon, and so probably dips down to 185.5 ish in the evening..which near bang on 6' why would we change his listing to 6'1.25 ? Would just seem unnecessary to me. Of course though baring in mind hes a fraction off 186 in the evening he could get away with claiming it if he wished.
mordor said on 11/Sep/15
Haha.He was measured 185,8cm probably in the afternoon and that makes it hard for you to ''buy'' he is 186cm?Alright maybe you are just trolling.I hope so.
Rory said on 9/Sep/15
2 cms isn't much in the grand scheme of things, but you can see it, when a gap is under 1cm its not so easy to tell. This site prides itself on being accurate anyway, in which case the difference between someone being a strong 6'1 or a 6'2 person is important to tell..Ronaldo at 186cm ? Yh i could buy that, IF, he hadn't had those laser measurements..but measuring 185.8 in probably the afternoon is a great bit of info to gather for a site like this, not many other celebs do we have such precise data for..and it tells us Ronaldo is a solid 6'1, 185.8 at lunch/afternoon..probs about 185.4 at night. Easy.
mordor said on 7/Sep/15
Even if he is 186cm that is far from 6''2?Are u kidding me?6''2=188CM.Are 2cm such a massive difference?I'' tell you its unnoticeable.Anyway chech him with legit 186cm Maldini.I had posted soe pics that next to each other.They are the same height.
Rory said on 6/Sep/15
There's not 3cm between him and Bale no way, id say hes half an inch taller at most, and hes not near 6'2 either, I wouldn't rule out 186 though, its more likely than 184.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 6/Sep/15
@mordor No chance he is over 186 (maybe only out of bed). Rob Can choose between listing him 185 or 186, but 187 and 184 listings are surely wrong IMO. Anyway, there are not 3cm between him and Bale (from all pic I ve seen the difference is 2cm max)
mordor said on 4/Sep/15
@Appe 6ft 0.5
Bale is around 3cm shorter.Maybe 2,5.As i always mentioned Ronaldo is almost 6''2.Its not his perfect posture always the reason that makes him "tower" over 6'' footers quite frequently.
6ftMagician said on 3/Sep/15
Ronaldo looked very tall next to Suarez and Messi at the UEFA awards ceremony.

Suarez looks close to his 5'11'' listing when seen with Gerrard in his Liverpool days. Ronaldo looks an easy shout for an upgrade.

If Suarez is just closer to 5'9'' than 5'11'', then this listing would appear fine and I have been deceived.

I think there's a higher chance hes 6'1.25 than under 6'1 at all. Im not sure hed ever dip below 185cm flat even after a match. Yh he sometimes tip toes in pics but a lot of players do to be honest, on his tiptoes hes 6'2-6'3 anyway..not as if he appears 6'1, only when tiptoeing..nor does he stroll around the pitch/street on his tiptoes either and yet he still looks a comfortable 6'1, which after all is what he is.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 28/Jul/15
He doesn' t drop below the 185 mark to me; maybe a little fraction after a match or after lifting weights at the gym. His posture, particularly in photos, makes him look 2cm taller

He is 184 Max always always tip toes on team pictures to look taller.

I think Ramos is a legit 6'0..he usually edges out the likes of Casillas and Alonso and is only just edged out himself by 184 range guys like arbeloa,Torres and benzema. I would say straight out of bed on a good day a flat 185cm, on a bad day probs 184.7 or something...and at night he probably holds 183cm, maybe 182.7 after a match or a long day or w.e

@Rory I ve quite always agreed with your posts too. What do you think is the exact height of Sergio Ramos height (out of bed and dinner time)? I admit he never seemed to me a 6ft until some years ago (maybe because of his long hair) but more 181-182. Actually he seems to me to be more a flat 183.
