As I saw in tested to the limit with fine posture .. and in the morning as shown in the start of the video and with some good activities he was measured 185.1 cm .. let's say that's his 5 pm measure in a relaxed good day for height.. that will make him wake up at something like 186.6 cm just out of bed

@anon because Rob lists famous with evening height. Evening height for CR7 is 185.5 cm that is approximately 6'1.

Cristiano 186 cm and Zidane 184 cm?

Rob why the **** you just don't change his mark for 1.86 everybody is sure about him having that height
MS said on 27/Sep/16
He never looks under 6'1. So he could be 185-186 cm
Mayank said on 26/Sep/16
1.86 m legitimate saw him by face in London in 2008 100% 1.86 m truth
MS said on 26/Sep/16
Yes.. He is a perfect example for 6'1 (185 cm). I totally agree...

@James nah I know most of the guy's 169cm range and even below have gfs or married. It's up to them if they wanna be alone all their lives and think about height, it's all in the head.

I know some dude who's about 164cm and is below average looking(I don't wanna call him ugly!) and he somehow married to a woman who's better looking than him and he's not even rich! He drives a average car and has a average job.

"It's really up to the own person to make either his height a bad or good thing." -Thomas6ft1

Messi is rich and famous, of course he doesn't care. But normal people always prefer to be 6' 1'' than 5' 6.5". How many 169 cm men have been rejected by girls only because of his height? From an objective point of view, it's better to be 185/186 cm than 169 cm (unless you are rich or famous).
Thomas6ft1 said on 18/Sep/16
@James
I don't think Messi is jealous of anyone. He is one of the best players, if not the best, in football. He has every right to be treated with great respect. In terms of height, I don't think he lets it get to him. It's really up to the own person to make either his height a bad or good thing.
Ben said on 17/Sep/16
@James why would he be jealous? Messi is beeing praised by football's greats and is often compared to Pele, Maradona etc. Ronaldo meanwhile is compared to Messi most of the times. You can see the difference there. Also Ronaldo has an ego as tall as his height, going on in public saying "I'm the most searched sportsman on internet". lmao
James said on 14/Sep/16
He is 100% sure the next Ballon d'Or and 186 cm. If I were Messi, I would be very jealous.
Canson said on 11/Sep/16
@James: yea that'd be very late night to lose the extra 1/4". I'd be surprised on a normal day if he got below 6-1
James said on 10/Sep/16
@Willes189 That's probably his night height.
Canson said on 10/Sep/16
187.5-188 out of bed 185.5-186 at his lowest
Johnson said on 9/Sep/16
@Willes189 I don't think he claims 189..m but in passport office he was measured with shoes on I imagine
Willes189 said on 9/Sep/16
He is probably 185.0cm flat (6'0.75) but he claims 189cm..
Canson said on 8/Sep/16
@Rampage: I agree with you. I can go as high as 6'2/6'1.25 or maybe 6'1.75/6'1 as a low but I agree with you and James he looks a strong 6'1. I can say strong as he'd be no less than that at his lowest or a true strong meaning he would be a hair above at his lowest like 186flat 6'1.25"
Canson said on 6/Sep/16
Actually James after looking at him more he could be a legit 186 or maybe where I had right before bed. Meaning he'd hold 186 almost all day. He could be a 1/4" higher than I thought like 188 or almost upon waking. That makes sense 6'2 out of bed or a hair less would bring him around their at night 6'1.25
Canson said on 6/Sep/16
@James: agreed. I could see that. He looks like he's certainly be nothing under 6'1. Like meaning he's one of the most legit 6'1 guys on this site
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
@Canson: That mark is definitely arguable. He usually looks on the stronger side of 6ft1, sometimes as high as 6ft1½. I know he's also been listed at 6ft2 in the past but that might be going a tad too far even though he'd easily get away with claiming that. But if he is 186cm he'd be 188cm out of bed then.
James said on 4/Sep/16
@Canson: At his lowest, I mean, in the exact moment when he goes to the bed, he could be a bit under 186 cm. But for the most part of the day he can be 186 cm. Just my opinion :)
Canson said on 3/Sep/16
Original: I can easily see him as that earlier in the day or maybe 186 as a low. Just not sure when he was measured (time of the day) and what his actual measurement was. but, I will say he doesn't look below a flat 6'1. If hes the flat 6'1 (185.5-.6), hed be about 187.2 or so out of bed or 6'1.75, if a flat 186 at his lowest, hed be a full 6'2 out of bed.
Original said on 2/Sep/16
He actually looks like he is 186,5.
Canson said on 1/Sep/16
@James: if he isn't 186 he is certainly no lower than maybe 185.5-185.7 (almost 186). He definitely is a legit 6'1 guy looking at more and more pics. He'd easily carry flat 186 after maybe two hours on his feet and prob dip to 6'1 flat. Prob a good 187 out of bed
James said on 31/Aug/16
@mordor I personally see Cristiano in the 186 cm range compared to 191 cm Lustig.
Andrea said on 31/Aug/16
He claims 191... I think he's an honest 191, considering he does look a good couple inches taller than Cristiano!
mordor said on 29/Aug/16
So if Lustig is 190,5-191 cm what's your take about CRr7 in the video i posted?Go to 1:17:44 till 1:17:53 and see them Both here:

Editor Rob: can look 6ft 3 range in the clip.
Canson said on 28/Aug/16
@James: yep I saw the same too. I'd say If he is in the 190 range it's like 190.5-.6 a dead on 6'3 to where they would call it 191 and it'd be legit.
Rory said on 25/Aug/16
@BilboBaggins, Yh he looked an inch taller than Jonathan when they shook hands, but then Ross' posture these days looks pretty poor at times. I reckon today he typically stands like a 6 footer does, but would still measure I'd say 6'0.75, and probably 20 odd yrs ago could measure 6'1/1.25. On the same show was David Tennant(184-5), and he looked similar to Ronaldo, although may have had slight footwear advantage if I remember rightly. Anyway, watching that I felt was good evidence of Ronaldo being a solid 6'1.
ly said on 25/Aug/16
I think lustigs case is the same as fontes case who is listed at 187cm but is taller than pepe at least 4cm.I think 190-1 cm is much more likelier than 189cm
BilboBaggins said on 25/Aug/16
Ronaldo can look a solid 6' 2" at times. When he walked on set to be interviewed on The Jonathan Ross TV chat show in the UK in late 2015, he actually looked noticeably taller than Ross (who is 6' 1"/6.1.5"). Both were wearing similarly heeled footwear.
James said on 24/Aug/16
@mordor. I know it's not Ibra's topic. I made a comparison between Lustig and Ibrahimovic to show he looks over 190 cm :). Yeah Cristiano looks 5 cm shorter than Lustig.

@Canson That's completely true, Lustig is listed in some places as 189 cm. But he is also listed as 191 cm in Celtic's page and Wikipedia:
Click Here
Click Here

Pogba is also listed as 188 cm in some places, when he is clearly taller. I think Lustig is exactly as tall as Pogba, 191 cm.

@Rory Thanks for the answer. As you well know I can't see Bale being under 184 cm, even 183.5 cm seems too low for him. And Cristiano looks 2 cm taller, so 186 cm flat is my guess. But I respect your opinon, Cristiano being 6' 1" (185.5 cm) is also a rational estimation.
Rory said on 23/Aug/16
@James I don't think some of those pics with Bale and Ronaldo are actually representative of the difference between them. In one or two of them Ronaldo looks 1.5 inches taller, but I've seen them together countless times for Real Madrid andthere's not a huge difference between them, more like half an inch. Ronaldo for me is legit 6'1 guy whose athletic build and good posture means he can pull off 6'1.25 with ease. Bale I think is 6'0.25 or 6'0.5.
Canson said on 22/Aug/16
@Mordor or James: not sure but What was Lustig's measurement in CM? I thought he was listed 6'3 but He's listed 6'2 by Wikipedia and other places. Now he could be a case of a 190cm rounded down since Pique was measured 192 and listed 6'3 in some places too. To me Lustig looks near the 6'3 mark but problem is that I'm comparing heights of other players and not sure when they were measured. i generally base my estimates more around the lowest or maybe 1/8" from the lowest for the day which is why for a guy like Ibra (to me that is his lowest as he looks close in height to me) and would have an easier time giving him that height over Pique who looks 192. Could even be 6'3.5.
joe### said on 22/Aug/16
lustig not look 192 but something around 190 ou191 Jonas olsson time he looks short
mordor said on 22/Aug/16
@James
Lustig 190-191 cm he is not 192 cm for sure.Cristiano is 2.5 cm taller than Bale.I believe Bale 184 cm CR7 186,5 cm.
Can u comment Lustig with cr7 i posted a vid too.Here is not ibra's topic.

Lustig is the number 2. Ibrahimovic the number 10. Go figure. Of course Lustig is 191-192 cm.
James said on 21/Aug/16
@mordor Can you comment something on the height difference between Cristiano and Bale?
James said on 21/Aug/16
@Rory YEAH let's ignore my comment that Cristiano is 2 cm taller than Bale as usual.
mordor said on 21/Aug/16
I found one good video with Ronaldo and Lustig next to each other during a match back in 2013.Lets assume here that Lustig is in
190- 190,5 cm range.So whats your take about CR7 compared to him?Go to 1:17:44 till 1:17:53 and see them both here:
Click Here
Canson said on 20/Aug/16
@mordor: Lustig poss could be in the 190 range but it'd appear more like a strong 190, 190.5ish or 190.6 (solid 6'3). That fits with Renaldo at around 185-186. Renaldo also looks nothing below flat 6'1.
Rory said on 20/Aug/16
Yh the idea we're just meant to accept Lustig at 189cm without scrutinising that claim and then have that somehow prove Ronaldo is under 6'1 is silly. Lustig = 190cm.
mordor said on 20/Aug/16
@James
I don't doubt Lustig may be 191 m.At world cup page 2014 he was listed 190 m.So you can compare him with Ronaldo and i have already posted some good vids here to see them walk nex to to each other.Lustig is one of the few players you know he can't be less than what he is listed to be.He is one of the guys that seem to tower Ronaldo.Personally i think Lustig is 190cm Ronaldo 186,5 cm.

Both Bale and Cristiano are officially listed under their real height. Neither Bale is 183 cm nor Cristiano is 185 cm.

186 cm is not ridiculous for Cristiano since he was even listed as 186.5 cm in 2010 at Real Madrid.com.
mordor said on 18/Aug/16
You can compare cristiano with Mikael Lustig (189cm).He seemed to tower him.One of the few people at 189 cm to tower him.
truth said on 17/Aug/16
still 186- 185 most likely his low
Christian-196cm (6ft 5.25in) said on 17/Aug/16
Ronaldo is an excellent example of how a solid legit 6'1" person should look like. I certainly wouldn't rule out 186cm for him.
Canson said on 17/Aug/16
@James: the more I see of Beckham, he can look 179 range maybe like 179.4-.5 Where as Ronaldo maybe inside like 185.4-.5 (a solid 6'1).
Johno said on 15/Aug/16
Actually nah, black socks.
Johno said on 15/Aug/16
@James, in the laser measurement you put up, after 0.18-seconds into the video, you can see they measured him in White football shoes.
James said on 15/Aug/16
@Canson: I agree with you that Cristiano is no less than 6' 1".
Click Here

Personally, I don't see only 5 cm of difference between Cristiano and Beckahm.

If Beckham is 180 cm, then Cristiano is 186 cm. If Beckham is 179 cm, then Cristiano is 185 cm.
Canson said on 15/Aug/16
@James: for Beckhami can see maybe not a flat 179 but inside 179-180 range. Maybe179.5
Rory said on 14/Aug/16
For some of those measurements though there's no way he was stood with measurement posture, he was loose and his feet wide apart, he could still gain half an inch I'd say if standing fully. So his footwear advantage was offset by his posture. 6'1 is bang on for this guy, he's one of few celebs who you could bank on being their guessed height without measuring them.
Canson said on 14/Aug/16
@James: specifically for Ronaldo I'd say he's exactly 6'1. A bit inside of the 185 range
Canson said on 14/Aug/16
@James: hard to tell with that pic but beckham I've always heard was 5'11. To me he looks 180 honestly but 179.5 isn't impossible neither is 180.5. The half cm could be off for shoes hair stance etc
James said on 14/Aug/16
@Johno I was talking about the laser measurement! He was barefoot and with the legs obviously open... and still 185.1 cm. In the Tussauds measurement he had his legs extremely open losing almost 2 cm, as well as wearing virtually flat shoes platform.

Nope, there is no way he is 184 cm.

He is 185-186 cm range.

Here he looks 2 cm taller than Fernando Torres.
James said on 13/Aug/16
@Canson Do you think Beckham could be 179 cm?
Click Here
Johno said on 13/Aug/16
@James, i have never ever realised that his 6'1 laser measurement was in footwear to.

His Tussauds measurement was 6'1 in footwear.

Football shoes usually just give you 0.5-inches on grass and his feet were more-or-less together. I guess his 6'1 laser measurement for me needs to be reassessed.

He can only be 6'0.5-6'0.75 barefoot or 184 cms.

Yh I don't think he gained much after joining United, when you look at pictures of him with Ferguson from 2004 the height difference between them looks very similar to what it did in say 2008. I'd say at 18-19 he was 184 but 20-21 age range gained a cm to push him to 185.

"His height was first listed at 5'10.5 at age of 18 or 17. How did he get that much taller. Basically about 4 inches and he was already 18" -Ronny

This claim need reference to reliable sources. I think this is an internet myth.

Anyway, Ronaldo signed for Manchester United when he was 18 years old. This is a report written the SAME day he signed for Manchester United:
Click Here

In the report, Ronaldo is said to be 1.84 m and 75 kg. So he was already listed as 184 cm from Sporting Lisboa. And he was playing for the first team since he was 16 or 17 years old.

Well, that, and continually repeating that Conor is 5'9" doesn't make him so.
James said on 2/Aug/16
@175 cm. Not looking for ideal pics, just reality. I always say Cristiano is at least 2 cm taller than 184 cm Bale. But no one here is considering seriously that argument.

With regard to Conor pics, Cristiano has his legs more open than him, therefore he is losing more height.

I think most users here agree that Cristiano is no less than 6' 1''.
heightchecker34 said on 29/Jul/16
Before I became interested in height, Cristiano Ronaldo and David Gandy for me personally made me believe 6'1 and 6'2 respectively was really tall. Now dont get me wrong, they are both legit above average heights and I would kill to have it (5'9 here), however I think I fell for their star vibes rather than just the person. Because I work with 6'0.5 and 6'1.5 guys and I don't feel really short, I realized its because of their ectomorph look, and standing alone, they can give off a tall vibe, heck even I do in some pictures! Cristiano Ronaldo is a perfect 185 cm specimen and anyone denying it, is being insulting or trolling on purpose.

The Man said on 28/Jul/16
Anything under 6'1" for Ronaldo is absurd IMO. He is that height at least. In photos he towers over most people he stands next to. Maybe because everyone around him is short. Nevertheless, he needs an upgrade to at least 186cm. Wouldn't be suprised if he was listed as 6'2" on his player profile.

5' inch difference. Really is probably about 4' inch. difference between McGregor and Ronaldo. McGregor is between 5'8 and 5'9. Probably Ronaldo is about 6'0.5" or 184cm, 186/7 with shoes.

I think this is wrong, have you seen the new picture of him with conor mcgregor who is listed 5'8?
Check those pictures up where hes standing next to him in an octagon (cage). Conor mcgregor is also not wearing shoes while cristiano is wearing white airmax shoes which are like 1-1.5" inch thick or 3 cm. At the same the tip of conors head is just below cristianos eyebrows. I think cristiano is 182cm.

Rob, what do you think of these reports that Ronaldo has cut some muscle mass in recent years? Do you think he weighed more, say, around the time of the Tested to the Limit documentary than he does now? Does he look slimmer now to you?
Editor Rob: if he's cut much it's only a couple of pounds, he has looked the same for a good few years visually.

Gareth Bale seems to be 6'0.25, 6'0.5.
Johno said on 23/Jul/16
I would not class Ronaldo as a 6'0.5 individual, i don't tend to give their lowest heights but rather 6'0.75 because he also measured 6'1 before thus, his range includes those parameters. I believe he has Nike Vapours on for those measurements, which are not far off an inch. 6'0.75, maybe 6'1 but that would be ignoring his lower half range. These listings would be be pretty fair and i agree with 175cm, that the Tussuads measurements ought to be included in his height bio above.

Average 6'0.75
mordor said on 23/Jul/16
CR7 almost 6'2.In fact i wouldn't be surprised if he actually was 187cm.As fot that passport that lists him 189cm no way.Mikael Lustig sedish defender at 189cm towered him.
James said on 22/Jul/16
@Johno I think he's losing more with the posture, but I agree with Rob and @175 cm that he has 0.5 inches of shoes platform.

Anyway, just look at Cristiano with Bale.

I think there are more chances that Cristiano is in the 6' 1"- 6' 1.25" range. Honestly, there is no way Cristiano could be as "low" as 6' 05".

@175 cm in the paper it puts 189 cm. I guess he was measured with sneakers
heightchecker34 said on 20/Jul/16
A 6'1 guy for sure... although he can appear taller due to his lean frame. Once again, a great height.. not to tall, not to short. I do believe 6'1-6'2 is probably the most desired height by many men. You can still be hold your own even if you are with tall women, (5'7-5'9), yet not be considered a beanpole!
Johno said on 20/Jul/16
Yeah James, Ronaldo is losing some height in that stance and it is the same stance his wax figure is in or is presented.

I believe i may have listed the shoes he has on below in the page, i believe he is getting 0.8-inches out of them and then add 0.3-inches back on for possible posture loss and he is around ~ 6.0.5; i think we could take those measurements to the bank, thus he can measure 6'1 and 6'0.5; his range likely include those figures.
James said on 17/Jul/16

Leo 5'8

What's wrong with that? Everyone has their own preferences, if you went to Scandinavia 80% of males would choose to be 190cm over 185cm, if you ask me 185-190cm is the ideal, the differance between 185-190cm is much less compared to 190-195cm
jajamen said on 13/Jul/16
Rob, possible for him to be 6'1.25?
Leo 5'8 said on 13/Jul/16
Ideal height in Celebheights is 6'1.25 - 6'1.5, but for Cristiano the ideal height is 190cm or more, he has problems with his height.

With Ricardo Quaresma (175cm), why does he look 187cm here?
He even looks taller than Pepe in some pictures, and Pepe is listed as 188cm. I believe he is between 186-187cm.
What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob: I don't think he could be 187 if he is measured near 186
Andrew said on 12/Jul/16
Imo he is 185cm at his lowest. He towers over so many people(mostly athletes)which proves that 6'1" is indeed the start of solid tall/very tall in general. It's the perfect height. I can't believe someone said 6'1" is average nowadays lol
James said on 11/Jul/16
Kaká looks 187 cm to me
James said on 8/Jul/16
hijopotamus I totally agree with you that Cristiano always tries too hard with his posture, but there is 0% chance that he is only 184 cm. He was even listed as 186.5 cm in Real Madrid website years ago. With horrible posture (legs very open) he was 185.1 cm in the laser measurement.

Also, he is at least 2 cm taller than 184 cm Bale:

hijopotamus said on 7/Jul/16
Met him at La Finca. Great posture, always standing to look taller, tries too hard tho', 184ish. Never 186!

Also met Beckham in Madrid at my gym long time ago. Very relaxed cool guy wearing sandals. Doesnt care about height and seemed 180 to me.
Casillas 180 or 181, humble and shy.
Ramos 183, friendly guy.
Raul was probably 179 and a big sloucher.
Johno said on 6/Jul/16
James i am not so sure that he is losing much height with that posture but even then, i am not a great a fan of laser measurements because i doubt they are that accurate when we deal with 1/4ths of inch moreover he was actually measured at 6'1 with Nike's on for Madam Tussauds thus, under a metric measuring tape he was 6'1 with shoes; granted time of the day matters but taking away 0.8-inches away from 6'1, leaves him around ~6'0.2 and then compensate for possibly height lost due to posture again and he would be around 6'0.5, point being ----- most definently under 6'1 during some part of the die and quite comfortably. I also remember him being listed 184cm from somewhere.

6'1, late morning.

CR7 no under 186cm, no more than 187cm.
James said on 4/Jul/16
Sorry Rob for my last comment. I know you told me the position of Cristiano on the laser measurement doesn't affect his height. But I still think that with this posture you can lost 1 cm. Sorry if I sound dogmatic, it's not my intention. It's only my opinion on the issue.
Editor Rob: a few mm's is possible, but I am not convinced the pose would lose 1cm.
James said on 4/Jul/16
@Johno Click Here at 10:26)
In the laser measurement Ronaldo was measured with his legs completely open, in this position you don't reach your peak height. Physicians normally measure height with the feets together like this:
Click Here

I am of the opinion that with correct posture Cristiano could be 186 cm. Real Madrid even listed him as 186.5 cm in 2010. And I am almost sure that Reeves is taller than Benzema.
Rory said on 4/Jul/16
The 185.1cm measurement though I'm not sure is Ronaldo stood at optimum posture. He's stood fairly well there, but I reckon he could gain a few mm if he forced posture.
Pucko said on 4/Jul/16
185cm is perfect for Ronaldo, i'd say he's about 186-187 out of bed, his lowest is probably around 184.5
Johno said on 3/Jul/16
That picture of Benzema with Keanu Reeves, Benzema is ducking and i really don't believe Reeves would measure taller if Benzema were stand upright.

Ronaldo looks between 0.75-1 inches taller than Benzema and would probably be taller than Reeves.

Ronaldo measured both 6'1 under a laser and 6'1 with footwear on by Madam Tussauds; he can't be listed above this height because is stands to reason Ronaldo could probably measure 6'0.5 in the evening.

Ronaldo 6'0.5-6'1
Benzema 6'0 max
Reeves 6'0

OK, though I'm surprised that some of those TV presenters you added (who are always sitting down) also get people looking for their height!
Editor Rob: There's varying interest in heights of TV/news presenters, much like the interest in actors....it really can vary tremendously. I have a lot of data available and even I scratch my head at the interest (or lack of interest) in some names...

This might be of interest to a few people, or not...

Last month on Google there was about 130,000 impressions (searches) on a term like
"lebron james height"

I don't rank great on that term because not only do you have the plethora of measurement sites, you have the big sports sites which also mention heights.
Those sites are not specifically on the topic of height, but a mention of it can mean they rank easier due to the perceived worth/trust that search engines like Google assign.

I might only end up with barely 400 visitors over the month from that term...there's certainly room to work and attempt to get better rankings on such pages, but it is a time-reward consideration.

At the lower end you have say for instance Matthew Santoro...a youtuber, who is basically unknown to mostly everybody outside youtube.

There's little competition on the term 'matthew santoro height' so it's easier to rank on it.
I don't even have a page for him, he's just one of 50 in the youtubers page list...

He might get about 600 searches a month on google and I might get 150 click-throughs.

Sometimes it is easier to spend some time working on low hanging fruit than spending all the time fighting over the apples near the top...

Rob, would you consider adding Roy Hodgson and Chris Coleman? I saw Hodgson with ROoney the other day and immediately though 5 ft 11 range but then he's my dad's age and not too far off 70 now so might have lost a bit. A guy like Hodgson might have been 6 ft in his prime, I might be wrong about him looking 5 ft 11 ish though. Chris Coleman I caught with Gareth Bale at the end of the match and he looked near 2 inches taller, I'd say Coleman was a legit 6 ft 2.
Editor Rob: there's not much search volume on those guys, I don't know if they are worth adding...
Arch Stanton said on 21/Jun/16
I was watching him with Portugal the other night and he can look a tall 6'1 I think because he has a smaller head and long neck which can affect how you view somebody I think. He can look a bit taller than 185.

James, struggling to find evidence of Benzema looking 182 so reposting the old ones ? That won't help your argument. Benzema is 6ft, Bale is 6'0.25-0.5. I've not seen one shred of evidence when Benzema is stood tall or when the camera angles are fair to suggest otherwise and I've made the case perfectly well, I've posted numerous items where Benzema looks at least 6ft, so I don't know what more I can do to correct people's views. I think people jump to conclusions. They see Benzema looking 181-2 at first in a particular instance and they then file him Under 182cm and stick rigidly to that view. Yet a closer inspection shows the guys 183cm.

2 cm is not a big difference, take a metric ruler and see how little 2 cm are. 2 cm is less than one inch! Benzema is 182 cm. He is 2 cm shorter than Bale.
Bale is not positioned nearer the camera, stop with the excuses. Is not a matter of posture. Bale is taller, is so simply as that ;)

@height..

Actually you can see their shoes and they're the same...Anyway footballers typically will have similar footwear, not like one will be in training kit in cowboy boots and the other in plimsoles.

I don't believe Bale is 2cms taller than Benzema when Karim is stood well. I think he's one cm taller, generally when they're both stood well they look similar or Bale only just shades him.

One picture I'd like to reveal is this one though, as it shows how when Bale slouches like how Benzema often does suddenly they become the same height...point is Bale stands well mostly and I think is 6'0.5, Benzema doesn't stand as well and so often looks 5'11.5 or 5'11.75, but would actually measure 6'0, perhaps even 6'0.25.

You can't see their feet, so there is no guarantee the 3 player have the same stance. Benzema clearly always seems shorter than Bale by 1.5cm-2cm.

I had him at 6'1 on the dot; no arguments for a longtime but in light of his recent measurements in shoes at 185cm, maybe this might be a reason to relist in balance of these new findings and i believe they are reasonably accurate ----- you can't simply ignore his Tussauds measurements.

@James, none of those postings are evidence of Benzema under 6ft, the so called "empirical evidence" clip, featured Bale, then Benzema stood about a foot behind him in the line up it seemed according to the camera angle, so that's unreliable. Frankly in the last two links I don't see any difference between him and Bale in actual fact, who does normally look slightly taller. Benzema is no less than a decent 6ft, can't we all just accept that and move on ?

I have solved the mystery of Real Madrid players' height:

Click Here

Fist of all, pause at 10:32. Cristiano Ronaldo was measured in an incorrect position. His legs were completeley open, in this extremely poor position you lose height. If you don't believe me, perform the experiment: measure yourself with your legs open, and then with your legs together. Everybody is shorter with the legs open.
Heels should be togueter. This is the correct posture and procedure to measure human height:

Sergio Ramos 182 cm
Casillas 180 cm
Beckham 180 cm
Ronaldo Nazario 180 cm
Editor Rob: his leg stance will make zero difference as it isn't wide enough to knock height off.

I did a wee video a while ago showing a feet near and then wide stance and the difference is basically nothing: This video.

There's a tipping point to the stance when you will lose height, but I don't think Ronaldo's stance is any wider than mine in the test video, in fact probably a little bit narrower.
Mark said on 29/May/16
He's obviously taller than Terry there. Even accounting for Terry slouching, he's at least his equal.

It is funny how Ronaldo's eye is higher than Terry's one, even though Terry has a bigger head.Terry(187cm) slightly edges him for 0,5cm, if not the same since cr7 has his legs wider apart.

Judging by Rory's photo, I would actually say Ronaldo is 6"1.75, extremely close to 6"2ft.

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.

@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.

@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??
mordor said on 25/May/16
@Rory
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.

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.

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.

@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.

Editor Rob: there's not really much between these guys
Rory said on 23/May/16
@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

@Tunman I instead would rule out anything under 186cm for Kakà ( 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.

@joe###
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 ?

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
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.
@Appe
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.
You are right, this picture is PERFECT:

In this another picture, the (little) height difference between Benzema and Bale is more appreciable:

IMO:
Cristiano Ronaldo 185.5 cm
Gareth Bale 184 cm
Karim Benzema 183.5 cm

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

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.
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.

Lustig looks 190 cm
Ervis said on 18/May/16
Pics with Kaka completely rule out a higher listing for Ronaldo.They even indicate a more flat 185 cm for him actually unless you want to argue Kaka is taller than 186cm.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 18/May/16
@Rory Good pic! I personally think that benzema Can look anywhere in the 183-4cm range while Bale is for sure 184cm (there is about a cm between them)
plus said on 17/May/16
@Appe 6ft 0.5 I agree in all but Griezmann and Kroos. No way Griezmann is 176!! You should see my stuff. Koke is 176 and Griezmann plain 175 cm and 175.5 early morning. Kroos is 182 cm. Schweinsteiger is 183 cm. I also have pics of Kroos
Rory said on 17/May/16
Here you are perfect...all stood in a line, similar posture and you have Ronaldo at 6'1, Benzema and Bale at 6'0.25..case settled.

Rory said on 17/May/16
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 said on 17/May/16
What am i meant to see in those pics, Benzema looking 182 when he's slouching ? Okay yh fine, but up straight hes 183-184. Get over it.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 17/May/16
Most famous Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid players in my opinion;
Midday heights:
Gareth Bale 184,3cm
Sergio Ramos 183cm
C. Ronaldo 185,5cm
Kroos 182,5cm
F. Torres 184,5cm
Saul Niguez 183,2cm
Griezmann 176cm
Godin 187,5cm

Benzema 184 cm? In his dreams.

He is not taller than Ramos...
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)
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 11/May/16
@Tunman
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.
@Appe
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 mystery..it would be his absolute low..id 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
plus said on 29/Apr/16
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
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 27/Apr/16
@plus
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.
