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

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

Re-look at that picture, he does honestly look 2 solid inches shorter than Khaderia (who Madrid claim is 6ft 2). Admittedly I am a Ronaldo fan, but even I can leave my bias and see the solid 4-5cm difference (not counting Ronaldo's hair).

I agree with you though, he looks 184/185, he is probably close to 186 during the morning.
Appe4 says on 26/Jan/15
@6ftMagician I personally disagree with you when you say he could be also a 183-184 cm guy. I think the lowest possible we could speak about is 184,7/185 before bed. Anyway I think he would measure between 185 and 186 during 80% of the day. To me a honest 185 footballer and maybe even 186... 187 is a joke
6ftMagician says on 24/Jan/15
Let's lay this to rest once and for all:

Click Here

-- In this picture Ronaldo looks a hair over 6ft flat (an honest judgment - I am a Ronaldo fan).
-- He was measured 185cm by a laser - with or without hair *unspecified*.

Ronaldo is at worst 6ft, at best 6ft 1.

Ronaldo is a reliable measuring stick to guess others heights. Not the other way around. So Ozil is clearly (despite slouching), no 6ft guy.

@186 i honestly have no idea why everywhere has benzema 187cm, he's not over 184cm, i think benzema is a fraction over 183 but he's certainly not 187cm, ronaldo is always 3/4 taller so that would make ronaldo 6'3 LOL. Either way yea i think he's 186cm
186 says on 24/Jan/15
He has to be at least 186 cm. Taller than Benzema who is listed 187 cm EVERYWHERE
6ftMagician says on 23/Jan/15
This isn't the place to discuss other players heights. There is a page for that for a reason - so do Rob a favor and do it there.
Appe4 says on 23/Jan/15
@james I agree with you when you say he s not under 185, anyway I think the range is 185-186 (no less no more)... If someone thinks he s 187 is only because he has a perfect posture and seems to stand as tall as possible every time he is photographed
james says on 22/Jan/15
@Ally Reus always struck me as a 181cm guy, but the more i see him the more i think he's just 180cm, either way, he's 180-181 but no taller or shorter. I say 180cm
james says on 22/Jan/15
@Appe, ok dude, im sure schweinstiger is not over 5'11, all the 6ft guys in bayern are always taller and if Alaba is 5'11,then so is he because they are the same height. Sergio ramos is a solid 6fter, like to me he's a benchmark 183cm, and you are right, ronaldo is a full inch above him, so maybe ronaldo could very well be 186cm, but he's not below 185cm, i think he never drobs below that, the lazer picked him up at 185.1cm, so for a fact he's not below 6'1. I think he's 186cm
Original says on 20/Jan/15
1,86 is correct.
6ftMagician says on 19/Jan/15
@Appe4 regarding that pic with Bolt, Ronaldo is in flat soccer cleats don't forget, and Ronaldo is leaning himself. I see a solid 7, possibly 8cm difference there.

Thqat pic with Schweinsteiger is poor. As we all know Ronald's best asset in terms of height is his long neck, in that pic his neck is hunched down. He already has Shweinsteiger beat by an inch if standing straight he could beat him by a solid 5-6cm.

It's a tough one Ronaldo, he can look anywhere from 183-187cm.
Appe4 says on 19/Jan/15 Total body image with bastian schweinsteiger, he his listed 183cm everywhere but I think he is a bit under this mark
Appe4 says on 19/Jan/15
If bolt stood straight as Ronaldo there would be 8-9 cm difference
Jack says on 19/Jan/15
Well I'm no expert but Bolt is not standing straight -- if he was standing straight as Ronaldo then it would be not more than 3 inches difference.
6ftMagician says on 18/Jan/15

Great full body pic that shows Ronaldo with 6'5'' track legend Usain Bolt. Ronaldo's soccer cleats give no added height (they dig into ground - 0cm). Bolt is wearing standard Puma 'Basket' sneakers (1cm).

How tall does Ronaldo look here Rob?
Appe4 says on 17/Jan/15
@ally reus no more than 181
Ally says on 16/Jan/15
What do you guys think about Marco Reus' height? He is listed from 180 to 183 cm everywhere
6ftMagician says on 15/Jan/15
@carver and @Appe4, both analysis are spot on. Robben is bang on 178cm. Di Maria at 179-180. Ronaldo 185 bang on. Neuer 192-193 range.
Appe4 says on 15/Jan/15
Guys let s say that with 183 sergio ramos ronaldo doesn t look a full 186 but more a 185 flat
carver says on 14/Jan/15
Ok,i saw someone asking about arjen robben's height, and i have to say, he really doesn't look 5'11, Di maria is 5'11 and the internet now has him 5'10(which makes no sense) and he was an inch taller than robben, also guatdiola is 5'11 and is also taller, and when ronaldo stood by him, ronaldo was a full 3 inches taller, now i don't think ronaldo is 6'2, i think he's a full 6'1 or maybe a little over, which makes robben 5'10.
6ftMagician says on 14/Jan/15
@Tor It's true, Neuer looks roughly 3 inches taller (even considering posture etc.)

I think Ronaldo can fool the camera into thinking he is taller. He probably is the full 6ft 1. I don't see a 6ft 2 guy there.
Appe4 says on 14/Jan/15
@6ftmagician, i saw other photos about the FIFA event in which you can clearly see there are at least 7 cm between them
Teej says on 13/Jan/15
Ronaldo to me looks like a 187cm, so i believe 186.5. He looks like he was a late bloomer and the amount of excercises he's done, with his lifestyle and diet, may have added a couple of cm I believe. So the fact that real madrid have put him as 186.5 is believable. besides I saw the 3d laser scan and dont forget he was doing excercise and he actually wasnt standing fully erect may also indicate he's 186.5 cm. The fact that he's listed as that height as opposed to 188cm or 190cm makes it also believeble. I think 186.5 is his exact height. Lets not also forget the fact most people are measured in shoes, so the fact that he's 186.5 barefoot he'd be a very strong 6'2 if not more in shoes. im 187.6 cm barefoot im 190.4cm in shoes, my shoes add about 3.4cm to my height. anyways lets not get off topic, I believe he is 186.5 I have no doubt about it.

too close to the camera and Cr is the first near the camera, that distorts the proportions...between Neuer and Cr7 yesterday there were at least 3" least!
6ftMagician says on 12/Jan/15
Just watched the annual Balon D'or ceremony for the best soccer player in the world. Finally a good body shot of Ronaldo...Ronaldo looked a strong 187cm next to (193cm) Manuel Neuer:

Rob is it just me or does Ronaldo look close (2 inches difference at most) to Neuer's height?
Appe4 says on 9/Jan/15
Click Here Doesn't look the full 186 with bale and ramos
6ftMagician says on 5/Jan/15
Click Here

There is Ronaldo pictured aged 18/19 at the start of his United career. He is pictured with 188cm Ruud V.Nistelrooy/ 193cm Rio Ferdinand/ 176cm Wayne Rooney.

Ronaldo looks a flat 6ft there. Did he grow since then? Hmm...
6ftMagician says on 30/Dec/14
Upon waking Ronaldo is 186-7cm and at bed he is 184-5cm. He is clearly slightly over the full 6'1''. Yet he is probably a good centimetre or two away from touching 6'2'' in the morning.
Samir Butts says on 28/Dec/14
I think the real height is 185.5 but He stands so correctly that sometimes he looks like 187cm. Pepe is taller all the way and sometimes they both look like if they have the same height.
Tor says on 28/Dec/14
thanks Rob, so we can put Fletcher somewhere between 6'0 and 6'1?

@Appe it means that Cr can't be over 185
[Editor Rob: Fletcher can look over 6ft flat, a full 6ft 1? Possibly close to it, at least 184cm I'd have guessed.]
Appe4 says on 28/Dec/14
This make me think darren is 185 and that ronaldo is not over 6'1
Appe4 says on 28/Dec/14
Guys! Google "fletcher & ronaldo"; I ve seen many photos, after that I can say only this: ronaldo is not taller than darren... He may have a better posture but he is not taller
bae says on 27/Dec/14
fletcher with 6'3 Sheamus Click Here
Tor says on 27/Dec/14
@bae search "darren fletcher height" in google search and you will see 6'0 or 183 everywhere, and only one or two 184
[Editor Rob: in their teen zone they once had Fletcher at 6ft 1 and 11st 7lbs.]
wat says on 27/Dec/14
Did he grow an inch suddenly? Fletcher was always 6 foot. End of story.

6ftMagician says on 25/Dec/14
Fletcher has been described as 6ft1 in some article, though he looks about 184. That would make Ronaldo between 185 and 187. I'd go with 186 for Ronaldo. He's not quite a 6ft2 but is probably a 184 at worst at bed. More like 6'0.75 at bed and 6'1.5 upon waking.
Ossi says on 25/Dec/14
Ronaldo is 6'1= 185 cm end of story
Judd says on 24/Dec/14
I think he's closer to 6'1" than 6'0" least 6'0.75", at least! 6'1" is fair!
Gx79 says on 24/Dec/14
Rob can ronaldo look in 6'2 or close to 6'1 1/2
Gx79 says on 24/Dec/14
Rob can ronaldo look in 6'2 or close to 6'1 1/2
[Editor Rob: don't think he can look 6ft 2, but a bit over 6ft 1 yes he can appear that with other players.]
Appe4 says on 23/Dec/14
Click Here Here is another proof! Fletcher at 183 is too low anyway, legit 184
good find says on 23/Dec/14
Another good find. Ronaldo is the same height as Fletcher. 185 never convinced me. He is 185 after bed. 183 in the evening. 186 in the morning and 184 before bed tops. Ronaldo just fools everybody with his height, and usually makes himself an inch taller than he really is.
Tor says on 21/Dec/14
very good full figure photo... same height (darren's face is reclined)...and fletcher is also listed 183

umpteenth pic that makes cr7 between 183 and 185 cm, no way over
Appe4 says on 18/Dec/14
Click Here Here ronaldo with 184.2 listed Darren Fletcher ( I think his listing is correct )
Appe4 says on 17/Dec/14
Perfect 6' 1. Maybe a little under after a training day and before going to bed.
ossi says on 13/Dec/14
i think Ronaldo is out of bed 185.8 or something like taht. And to the end of the day he is 184 cm i dont think he is 186 but he is still taller than bale
Sukzoo 4 lyf says on 5/Dec/14
Ive always knew that ronaldo is taller than bale still saying that keep growing until u ar tired bye man
sam says on 4/Dec/14
Thoughts on Neven Subotic? IMO nowhere near 6ft 4 as he looks a matter of cm taller than Sven Bender in lots of photos. Giroud as well
charlie says on 3/Dec/14
It should be noted a lazer minus's the hair when it measures you, so i feel like if any of the "6'1" guys were to get measured by a lazer the be about inch shorter. And the reason ronaldo was measured with that machine was because they were trying to determine how fast, how high(he can jump), and how strong ronaldo was by puting him under certain tests, in order to determine this, they placed ronaldo in a machine tgat gave PIN POINT body statistics(weight, height, width etc) they weren't trying to flatter ronaldo with a height, his height came up 185.1cm but like rob said the screen did have 185.8cm, but it also should be noted this was around after noon when the video was shot, and height varies throughout the day, if im correct, i really think ronaldo out of bed is 187, for most of the day he's 185/186cm and at night he's 184.6cm. He remains 6'1 constatly through his day.
charlie says on 3/Dec/14
Josh1 he is not 6'0.5, a LAZER Measured him 185.1cm(6'1) it is solid proof he's not beloelw 6'1. And when he came to united at age 17 he was 179/180cm look at the pictures with a neville, he was the same height as him at age 18, he grew quite a bit before 21.
joe joe says on 3/Dec/14
Rob Im guessing in his height measurement with Real madrid, it was done as it is always done in sports clubs Bare foot, Feet together and military posture. In the sky documetary clip his feet are about 30 CM apart when they do the lazer measurement. Just saying
Josh1 says on 2/Dec/14
He was 6'0.5 when he first arrived to Manchester United and he still is 6'0.5
Appe4 says on 2/Dec/14
I think he is more 186 than 185 ( 186 lunchtime). If he looks taller is because he always has a perfect posture in photos; in my experience, I am 184 (and I have a good posture) and in many photos I took I seem to be as tall as some mate who are 186-187 or towering on 180 guys... for me is the only reason why some of you talk of 187-188 for him. Then he is so egocentric that he wants to appear 190cm next to Benzema when in reality he is "only" an inch taller. Good evening guys!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Dec/14
"Christiano Ronaldo's height is 6ft 1žin (186cm)"

Out of bed: 187-188cm, Before bed: 185-186cm
186 cm says on 30/Nov/14
Hes at least 186. Always looks taller than solid 6 footers
6ftMagician says on 30/Nov/14
@joe joe Ronaldo does look taller than Cain, but we cannot see the ground nor can we see footwear. Purely based on that clip Ronaldo is 6'1 and Cain is 5'11.5 (in MMA he is billed an inch or so higher so this is not unlikely).
MD says on 30/Nov/14
You guys really have to stop using "tower" as you use it. A one inch advantage isn't "towering"; a two inch advantage isn't "towering." I don't think you can even begin to use the term until one person can see over the top of someone else's head. Let's start using the word more appropriately.
Tom says on 29/Nov/14
I do agree that most of the time he does look taller than this listing however with 6'1'' measured Chad Ochocinco in the picture when he met the real madrid team ronaldo looks marginally taller however Cinco is not standing up straight and was wearing vans slip ons which give (according to this site) 0.55' so i doubt ronaldo had less footwear. In another image when the two with their girlfriends cinco looks marginally taller. I believe 6'1.25'' for ronaldo.
Tom says on 29/Nov/14
Cain velasquez is not even 6ft. There is a good picture of him and brock lesnar in clothes where brock looks a solid 2.5 inches on him, making cain 5'11.5. Solves the height difference which between Ronaldo and cain i see 2 inches no more, no less.
Scott 187cm says on 29/Nov/14
Cristiano is 185 .5 cm
6ftMagician says on 29/Nov/14
@rmv Because Ronaldo does tower over '6 footers', logic tells us to round them down as opposed to putting Ronaldo's height higher!

Example: jenson button is at best 181cm. Not a chance he is a six footer.

My analysis in previous comment (posted on 26/Nov) also fits in well with laser measurement.
joe joe says on 29/Nov/14
It's really wierd that in this vid Ronaldo Towers over 6'1 1m 85 listed Cain Valasquez. Either cain isnt the 6'1 he is billed at or ronaldo is taller than 1m85. Infact in the early part of his MMA career Cain was Billed at 6'2. Really confusing. Also for guys who are going to say Ron is wearing soccer shoes. I doubt he is as he is holding them in his hand as this vid is taken after training. So it's safe to say Ronaldo is wearing training sneaker. Even if Cain is wearing flat shoes it still doesnt explain the difference in height from 2 men who are both billed at 185. IMO I would say Ronaldo is closer to 186.5 and Cain closer to 183/184. Let me know what you think Rob Click Here
rmv says on 27/Nov/14
No less than 185, I think closer to 186 because he often towers over solid 6 footers
6ftMagician says on 26/Nov/14
Guys the plot thickens, I found some interesting evidence (hear me out): Click Here

Despite unable to see the tape clearly we can make out the 5ft Mark clearly in black (just above guy in hoodie's scalpel). This is 100% because the next inch above it looks like a faint ''61''. I obtained the pic from this article Click Here
and zoomed in...

The tape indicates that Ronaldo is 66 inches up to his mouth (wearing 'indoor' soccer shoes). This means that his head would be 73 inches or 185.42cm. Discount the 1.5cm the shoes give and he looks a solid 184cm or so.

It's impossible for him to be as much as 1cm over 185. The laser was correct :)
appe4 says on 25/Nov/14
hey rob! 2 questions for you. First, are you thinking about to put CR at 186cm? Second, may you create in future a page on Fernando Torres or will you let him with other footballers page?
[Editor Rob: I think 6ft 1 is fine for him, he got his measurements somewhere between 185 and 186cm]
6ftMagician says on 24/Nov/14
@Aubameyang not seeing Ronaldo at 187 there, more like 185 at a stretch.

Funnily enough he is currently listed (most up to date) at 184cm on European Championship official website. Click Here

6ftMagician says on 22/Nov/14
I solved this debate once and for all... Ronaldo has a eye level higher than an average 185cm guy. He therefore can appear anything up to 187cm (even during day after standing for hours) at times.
I conclude Ronaldo is as measured by the laser, a strong 185 at bed, and 187 in the morning. Still a tall guy nontheless.
Tor says on 21/Nov/14
@mordor people lose from 1 to 3 cm during day, average is not 1 cm! Personally i lose only 1,5 but i'm an HP -15 and a 24y.o., so i'm in the minimum range; and where Crowe is 182? He is signed 179 bang on this site!
However no one of last pics are full figure...well, all of us can share kakā at 185186 cm, isn't he?

everyone can judge himself, i believe...

6ftMagician says on 20/Nov/14
@ Appe, not doubt Kaka is in 6'1 range. A strong 186cm at bed time. A 6'2 on waking up.

@ Mordor, I just don't get why Ronaldo looks so tall, especially compared to Jenson Button - he has at least 2 solid inches on Button. I am not saying he is definitely taller than 6'1 but we shouldn't rule it out.

Everyone I read all previous comments and I am surprised to learn Ronaldo was measured 185cm by laser.

My conclusion: Only thing I can think of is Ronaldo is really 'just' 6'1 OR it is possible for the laser to be misinterpreted/wrong.
Max says on 19/Nov/14
@appe ok im positive ramos is a solid 183cm. Bale i think 184.5, lewandowski 184cm. Torres, well dude he could very well be 185cm, he's definitely in the 6'1 range though. As for kaka im soo sure he and ronaldo are the exact same height, and because of that on different days one might appear taller than the other. But kaka is one of the few people who look exactly ronaldo's height.
@6ftmagician ikr? He stands way taller than most 6fters, the one with jenson betton real stunned me considering they wore the exact same footwear to race in that car. Ronaldo's height is by far the most debatable height i've ever seen because he really makes all other 6'1 listings look wrong
mordor says on 18/Nov/14
check that
Click Here (somewhere says he is 6'3 with shoes on)that means that his shoes have always a standard heel advantage(5cm in that case)??
mordor says on 18/Nov/14
need to mention he is listed at all w i k i e s 185cm except the greek one where he is listed as 187cm.
mordor says on 18/Nov/14
Well it seems more and more people come close to my conclusions.Dont even think about it dudes.This guy is 186,5cm most of the day.And i dont beleive he shrinks more than one 1cm.Those who say he shrinks 2-3cm during the day must be better informed.Maybe old people shrink that much.Not such young people with such strong build.
Appe4 says on 17/Nov/14
Kakā is a bit taller than ronaldo anyway. No doubt on this

Appe4 says on 17/Nov/14
@max cristiano 186, fernando torres 184,5 gareth bale 184 lewandowski 184 sergio ramos and xabi alonso 182,5/183. I don t know how you can see 3.5 cm difference between fernando torres and xabi alonso when there are so many photos proving not more than 2cm difference (max). Anyway I agree with you about CR and lewandowski. I write my estimation for midday height
Max says on 15/Nov/14
@Appe oh and as for torres, well the best shot is when ronaldo, kaka, and torres stood together at the fifa world player of the year 2008(all of them listed 186cm) torres and kaka looked the same height(wearing sneakers) while ronaldo was a little taller but he wore dress shoes(2cm heel) i really think they are the same height, people say what makes the nickname 'el niņo' so ironic is how tall torres is. I think he and ronaldo are the same. As for alonso before real madrid listed him 182.4cm, i'd say that's spot on for him torres looks 3/4 cm taller(3.6cm) so this is my guess
Cr7 : 186cm
Torres : 186cm
Alonso : 182.4cm
Max says on 15/Nov/14
@Appe good question, well he is currently listed 184cm kn bayern's official site, but recently i realised these official sites aren't as reliable as we think, i realise most just list what the internet has, however i do think he is 184cm, he's taller than the average 6fter(183cm) but he isn't quite 6'1. He has a very lean physique so he can look very tall at times. One other thing, when ronaldo stood next to him, he looked a solid inch taller, so to me this is more evidence that ronaldo is strong 186cm(and doesn't drop below 6'1 mark) what do you think?

Josh says on 13/Nov/14
The debate fascinates me. Even with laser measured pics lol...

The only thing worth debating at this point is whether he is 185.1 or 185.8
Appe4 says on 12/Nov/14
@max ...and, what is your thought about lewandowski? He is listed 183,184 or 185...
Appe4 says on 12/Nov/14
@max so do you think fernando torres is a full 186cm? Search "fernando torres & xabi Alonso" for example and you Will tell me. Don t know why but I think cristiano is slightly taller and I am pretty sure on 186 listing in him.
max says on 11/Nov/14
I think benzy is a solid 183( 184cm is possible like rob said, but i think 183cm looks more like him) but i agree he is no way 187cm, where did that listing even come from? And now everywhere has him listed that, i don't understand, and now people are saying ronaldo only looked taller because he tip toes when ronaldo was always 2/3 cm taller
max says on 11/Nov/14
@tor. No way man, then he'd be a 183/184cm guy, i really think don't think he drops below 185cm, out of bed he's 187/188, most of the day 185/186cm(hence the lazer got him 185.1/185.8), and a weak 185cm at night.
Tor says on 9/Nov/14
however my two cents: cr7's out of bed height 185-186 cm, most of the day 184 and 183-184 night height

Kareem Benzema is 182cm.Anything above that for him is a lie.CR7 sometimes towers over him without tiptoeing tricks.
Max says on 6/Nov/14
@mordor, yup! They look both like strong 6'1ers. But my god, now this thing circling that benzema is taller than ronaldo and that's why ronaldo tiptoes in team photos....-.- why does everyone seem to think benzema is 187cm? Even gareth bale was slightly taller, but why do people think benzema is that tall?
Appe4 says on 6/Nov/14
@max I agree with you on everything but FT height, I don t think he is 186, look at photos with him and xabi alonso or sergio ramos (both 183): he has not 3cm in them as cristiano ronaldo! I think fernando torres is a genuine 184/185 guy as gareth bale but not over 185 as ronaldo. If ronaldo and torres would meet I bet there will be 2cm between them (not more). Anyway, From my point of you falcao is under the 179 listing, he seems more in the 177-178 range
mordor says on 5/Nov/14
I agree with the fact that he stands the same height as Thomas Muller who is listed at 186cm eveywhere.

Tor it is quite difficult for CR7 to loose 2cm.I had read once that the average shrinkage is about 1,5cm.Some people may shrink only 1cm.Of course it depends on factors such as vigorous exercise,etc.But the thing is that i also read that fat people tend to shrink more than avereage and quicker throughout the day at an average 1,8cm.Considering those Cristiano stands 187,2cm out of bed.Till late afternoon he stands at 186,5cm.And maybe at night he falls just under 186cm so maybe at match time he is 185,8cm or even 185,9cm.
max says on 4/Nov/14
@Appe4 to answer your question, it varies, ronaldo looks a full inch taller benzema(183/184) about the same height as torres(solid 186cm) 3cm taller than ramos(solid183cm) and bale...well honestly there is ahrdly anything between them 1-2cm(this is more proof that bale is not 183cm but more 184/185cm). And then for the WC, ronaldo made clint dempsey(listed at 185cm) look 5'10, and looked eye to eye with matt hummels. The only players who really look similar to ronaldo's height are: diego costa, fernando torres, thomas muller. Those 3 players have looked exactly his height. On a side note, how tall do think radamel falcao is?
Tor says on 4/Nov/14
however we can't consider out of bed height, that persists only 2-3 hours: the rest of the day we are 1-2cm shorter (the most lose happens the first 4-5 hours since wake up)
Appe4 says on 3/Nov/14
@celebheights 188: rob says frequently the average shrink is between 1.5 and 2cm ( considering this I assume 1.8 as perfect average). So less than 186 when is dinner time; my personal estimation is that he pull off 185 after a long training day. I ask you a question: how much are these players shorter than CR? Fernando torres, Sergio Ramos, gareth bale (if for you they are shorter of course)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Nov/14
If 185.8cm is a nighttime measure, he's a very strong 6ft1
max says on 1/Nov/14
Well yea it is very possible he grew after 18, that is common, however, look at him next to di maria!(who is now listed 178cm) they are the same height! I think they are both 180cm, how tall do you think falcao is?
mordor says on 1/Nov/14
Ok that's an opinion.We have about the same estimation.Only one correction.My estimations make him shrink 1.4cm not 1.2cm.(187.2CM MORNING-185.8CM NIGHT HEIGHT).Just for the record.
RealMF_CR7 says on 31/Oct/14
Yep.. 185 in soccer games. 184 in bad day and 186 out of bed.
Appe4 says on 31/Oct/14
@mordor. Quite agree with you but I think he shrink not only 1.2 cm in the day. So I think his morning height is right (about 187) but his height before bed could be only few mms above 185 (and not about 186 as you say). My estimation for his midday height is around 186 anyway :-)
Appe4 says on 31/Oct/14
@max I m pretty convinced he is 182. There are two reasons: the first is that I think 180 is his listing when he arrived in the United first team ( the listing when he was 17-18; as you know he is a 1995 born ); the second is that he appears always no more than 3/4 cm shorter than a legit 186 robin van Persie!
Max says on 31/Oct/14
@josh, actually when he was 17 and just arrived he was shorter than that! He was 179/180cm! You can ho check this up it's incredible, he was the same height as gary neville. He grew quite a bit from 18
mordor says on 30/Oct/14
I dont think so CR7's shoes have 1cm advantage to those of Dudek'.They have about the same footwear advantage.Maybe there is difference in millimeters(unnoticeable).And why should not Dudek be 188cm?He looks like a tall guy.Anyway their diffrence is max 1,5cm.So i really tend to believe that Madrid's listing about 3 years ago at 186,5cm is really accurate.However he is nowadays listed at Madrid's site at 185cm.Also he is listed 185cm in fifa world cup 2014 site.Need to mention again that all those sites that refer to his body measurements and other info for him analytically including his official one list him as 186cm guy.If you want my opinion after all those pics that we all have uploaded as well as recent charlez's interesting comment i am very sure he is:
Morning height:187.2cm
Midday-Afternoon height:186,5cm
Night height:185,8cm(almost 186cm)
So his height is (7 hours after sleep,best time to be measured) obviously 186,5cm.It's perfect for him cause he is just under 6-2 but also above 6-1 range.
Max says on 30/Oct/14
@Appe while were on this topic how tall do think adnan januzaj is? I see the internet now has him 182 o.O i think he's 180cm maximum, what do think?
Josh says on 30/Oct/14
When he first arrived to Manchester United he was 6'0.5 (184cm) before he got famous.
Appe4 says on 29/Oct/14
@mordor with dudek looks 186. 1cm difference + 1 cm his shoes has on dudek ones. ( but we don t know if dudek is really 188). @charlez did you saw him on a flat ground? You are 182 and did you feel "small" next to him that time?
Tor says on 28/Oct/14
@indo the difference Bambang-Obama is about the same as Ronaldo-Obama ( we can argue about 11 or 12 cm instead 13, but not more) and Obama isn't 187 or 188, he is something between 183 and 185

pics with pepe we can't see floor and alignment's photo

and in your pic Cr-Drogba there are only 2-3 cm difference, not 4-5 as mine's , i agree, but this can put Cr at 185 max, surely not over ( and i doubt Drogba is a full 6'2, he is a bit shorter than Ivanovic and quite the same as Terry)

Heylo says on 24/Oct/14
The difference between Ronaldo & 188cm Elmander is pretty big, i got surprised here. Ronaldo looks roughly 183-184cm. But you never know, a 3d Laser scan doesn't lie.. But he can definitely be above 185 in the morning when he wakes up. He may be 185 on a good day, on a bad day 184 (yes, you can be 1cm shorter one day because of exercising the back for example..)
Appe4 says on 23/Oct/14

Pinky says on 21/Oct/14
Dural, those were great photos
mordor says on 21/Oct/14
I try to state his real height and not trying to overrate his height.And i do not take into consideration if he has a good or not good height at 185cm so this would stop me to estimate him as a bit taller from that.Thats another discussion topic if he has a good or not good height and has nothing to do to his height estimation.Lets not blend things together.
Tor says on 20/Oct/14
No guys, Cr7 isn't the same as pepe, he is a bit shorter;
however, all full figure's field pics put him about 183184 cm, max 185, so why try to overrate his height? 66'1 is a very good height! In the 8090 percentile's range: tall, clearly over average height, but not very very tall or a giant
mordor says on 20/Oct/14
Most sites list Pepe at 187cm.Think that real's official page and even w i k i list him at 188cm.So if you consider these facts ronaldo is a legit 186,5cm guy.

You seem to be inordinate as far as cr7's height is concerned.But the truth is he is almost the same height as his teammate pepe(187cm) if not exactly the same.
Appe4 says on 15/Oct/14
@1.85m, 83 kg, cristiano at 180 is so ridicolous that I m feeling ridicolous too answering to you. The minimum chance I can hear is 184 (but with Good images). Anyway, imo, he never deeps under 185
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 13/Oct/14
I feel like a broken record but, again, we don't know where the 185.8 cm value has come from, thus we have to discount it. Also, since we're all making assumptions, let me make a few of my own: the measurement was taken on his day off training, he had a full night's rest, it was first thing in the morning, he had no exertion yet, the laser measured to the top of his hair. I've often seen Ronaldo looking 5'11".

Christiano Ronaldo, is that you?
mordor says on 10/Oct/14
@1.85 m, 83 kg
Don't forget an important parameter.Of course the lazer measurement is the most respected method we have to estimate his height but as you already know the laser measurement showed two different heights of him(185,1 and 185,8cm)at another instants.So we could assume that at another instant could have shown him even a legit 186cm guy.No one can exclude that option.Also dont't forget the measurement was applied after some vigorous sprints he made to compeete with a sprinter guy.So he sure lost maybe(not sure about the time he was measured, an also important parameter) about 1,5cm from his let's say morning or peak height.So if we take 185,1cm option plus 1,5cm approximately(during the day he can't loose more than 1,8cm, it's quite rare, and that's checked from authoritative sources) means peak height 186,6cm.On the other hand if we take 185,8cm plus 1,5cm goes to 187,3cm "peak height".Even if you add 1cm on both options so waht he lost was due to exercise and time of day parameter you get on first option 186,1cm and 186,8cm respectively.So those people who say-and among them me-that CR7:he is 187cm in morning,
7 hours after waking up(best time to get measured) height is 186,1cm, one millimeter up-down,
Night(match time) height is 185,5cm, are NOT paranoiac.Besides he stands tall and as i have already mentioned the terrm for him, an ALMOST 6'2 range guy and that WITHOUT tiptoeing tricks he often does indeed.

@tor dude ibra is a beefy 6'5, he's at least 195cm. he made was even taller than david de gea! I reckcon he's 9cm taller than ronaldo.
mario says on 8/Oct/14
Ok guys, seriously, the lazer measured him, it doesn't get more accurate than that, so he's either 185.1cm or 185.8cm(like the computer screen said) i'd go with 185.8cm, he really looks like a 186 guy so 185.8 to me seems spot on(and the lazer does not include hair). But he is not over 186.5cm and he us NOT below,185.1cm 185.1cm. 187 is probably his height out of bed but that's about it
Max says on 8/Oct/14
Ok ENOUGH! Ronaldo tiptoed ONCE! that was it, every time, when standing on flat feet he dwarfes people who are listed 6feet and even 6'1
charlez says on 8/Oct/14
@me to appe
Ronaldo was measured with a LAZER and his height was 185.1cm. There is no way he is 184cm

CR7 is 187cm in morning.
7 hours after waking up(best time to get measured) height is 186,1cm, one millimeter up-down.
Night(match time) height is 185,5cm.
What's your opinion about that conclusion?
me to Appe4 says on 6/Oct/14 says on 7/Oct/14
Bale is 183. If we are generous, then 184.

Ronaldo is 184. If we are generous, then 185. All these claims of 187 is just absolute BS. He looks taller in photos because he tiptoes and does other stuff.

For example, in posted photo with ibra, ibra, who is 194, towered over him like by 4 inches.
Appe4 says on 6/Oct/14
1cm taller than gareth bale, there is no more difference between them, 184,5 for bale, 185,5 for cristiano

Dude, he always tiptoes in team photos. I found another photo of portugal team from this year, and he stands as tall as in the one you posted like he is 6'2. But from the 2014 photo he gains around 2 inches by doing a tiptoe trick.

Really @mordor? There are more than 10 cm difference in that photo. And Ibrahimovic is actually 194cm, he was listed this height at FC Barcelona...but Ronaldo has grown a little since then, he is now 185-185.5 cm (afternoon). 187 might be in the morning
mordor says on 27/Sep/14

@mordor Did you even read my post? I mention morning height in my first sentence... I didn't say Terry wouldn't have concerns about claiming his morning height - I'm certain he'd be fine about doing that. My whole point was that you were holding up Terry's apparent 187cm daytime height as proof that Ronaldo is also at least 187cm (daytime) because they look the same height in the photo. My point is that Terry can't be 187cm because he only looks a little taller than Lampard who is definitely no taller than 183cm - hence Terry and Ronaldo are, I imagine, both 185cm. And are you holding up a 4cm difference with Del Bosque as evidence that Ronaldo is 188cm? Del Bosque is 63 years old so it's quite believable he has lost 2-3cm and is now 181cm which would make Ronaldo 185cm. Hasn't Ronaldo been measured with a laser as between 185 and 186? (Rob's listing says so.) I'll give him that, I don't believe any higher.
Appe4 says on 20/Sep/14
So Those of you who say he is 187 think that he is 188-189 just out of bed which I think is really too much. He could be 187 in the morning but if measured at midday or in the afternoon He' d be a 186cm guy, no more. 186cm fits him perfectly

You talk as if you are sure terry is not 187cm and as if morning height is non-existent.Anyway what about Del Bosque?And i dont believe that terry would have such concerns about 'claiming' his morning height of 187cm while he is 185cm on midday.Maybe CR7 would have such concerns but not terry.Even if he is 185cm(he is tall anyway) he would not mind claiming 187m.
Jay 184cm says on 19/Sep/14
@mordor CR7 looks the exact same height as Terry in your photo evidence but have you considered that Terry is only 185cm himself and perhaps claims his morning height of 187cm? Also note that Lampard looks a solid 183cm next to Terry and CR7 in the photo, which is fairly believable - Lampard is certainly no taller than 183cm which means Terry and CR7 are NOT 187cm.
Also, CR7 is a massive egotist! If he was any taller than 185cm when measured, he'd make damn sure it was posted online by Real Madrid as 188cm or something.

Ronaldo's 185.8cm but thats barefoot and measured after exercise. So yes i would believe 186.5cm on Madrid's website he could even be a strong 187cm when he wakes up. In shoes no question he would be a reasonable 6'2. He still looks taller than footballers who are listed over 186cm e.g terry. I believe many footballers are measured in different circumstances e.g morning or after exercise. So you cant be accurate.
Milanista says on 12/Sep/14
Ronaldo is sharp 186. Kaka is 187. Benzema is 183. Pogba was 188 when he was in Man United. He's now 191 in Juventus. Remember guys, he's young and still grows. About RVP? That's twaddle. He's probably 187-188. Balotelli is 188. Yaya Toure is 191. It's not shoulder to shoulder, it's head to head you measure the height!!
