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)

@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
aubameyang says on 23/Nov/14
cristiano 186-187cm
lionel messi 168-169cm

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...
( care to say i have nothing vs Cr7, that even consider in the list of all time 10 strongest footballers!)
ah, here Xabi Alonso with 174-175 Mourinho and 183-184 Nadal...

@ 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
6ftMagician says on 17/Nov/14
I'll just leave these here... Ronaldo with Jenson Button (182cm), Ryan Howard (193cm) and Kaka (186cm):

Is he really just 185cm? He looks awfully tall at times!
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?
Mamat says on 14/Nov/14
Cristiano Is About 186cm for sure...

russel crow at 181-182cm not 5'10
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
Appe4 says on 8/Nov/14
@jamal 180

mordor says on 7/Nov/14
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.
mordor says on 4/Nov/14
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)
Jamal says on 28/Oct/14
@Appe4 You probably meant "an inch ON me" instead of "an inch IN me". Then again, you never know...
Appe4 says on 28/Oct/14
Always more convinced he s a 185-186 cm guy who in many situations looks 187-188 due to his perfect posture (anyway not a 186+ guy for sure)

@appe dude, i get to see him back in 2012 when he came to LA with real madrid, im 182cm(im VERY posotive of this) and when he passed right front me and he was a good 2 inches taller me and he was wearing flip flops!. The guy is a STRONG 186cm from what i saw, maybe even a weak 187cm

I am a legit 184 and I would be so curious to know if he would have a whole inch in me
my estimation says on 26/Oct/14
Christiano is 185-186 cm in the morning, 184 cm before bed. The lowest I can see him is 183 cm. Maybe after a very bad day he is.

check that video guys at 3.03-3.12 minute CR7 next to to 188cm listed elmander and 189cm alves.I also need to mention that CR7 is listed 186cm in most of the sites that state analytically his body measurements.

I want to be great footballer my feature haw do think cr7 althought Iwant to help me to play football i live in north somali please call me 2520634346424
Tor says on 24/Oct/14
Click Here here Bruno Alves (#2) and Cr7 are the only two that doesn't elongating themselves....there are, at least, 2 full inches between them

Click Here and here with 6'1.5-6'2 Drogba...all things considered ( Drogba is nearer to the camera, but his posture is more relaxed than Cr7's) there is more or less 4-5 cm difference

Well, how Cr can be 186, 187 or 188 cm?!? How he can be!! Come on, it's completely out of the world
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
@mordor this is the REAL difference between cristiano and 189 Bruno alves (here CR is not tiptoeing) Click Here 186 is the best for him

@mordor but seems you would try to do that thing!! CR isn't over 185, can't be taller than Terry or Wes Brown or Pepe or others standing around 6'1, maybe a bit shorter!
mordor says on 22/Oct/14
Well ramos with rich hair next to to bald pepe may trick you a bit.

@mordor pepe never looks a 188 guy, here with 183 sergio ramos (same ground and footwear). Click Here He is a legit 186 as ronaldo, but not more.
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.
again saying his morning height around 187-187,5cm

@1.85 m, 83 kg mad cos Ronaldo > you in everything including height
Appe4 says on 17/Oct/14
Pepe is listed also 186 on Many sites, I think it is right for him. He seems taller because he is very thin (72kg)
mordor says on 16/Oct/14
@1.85 m, 83 kg
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".
RealMF_CR7 says on 11/Oct/14

You never know...
lol says on 11/Oct/14

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.
max says on 10/Oct/14
@cebheighta 188CM
i fully agree with your comment, that actually seems very accurate for ronaldo.
Tor says on 9/Oct/14
ibra is a bit over materazzipique vieira and that type of players, and a couple of inches shorter than goalkeeper isaksson: probably a 193194 cm rounded at 195, but nono way over
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 9/Oct/14
LOL Max, and mordor the human laser, measuring to the nearest mm with only his eyes.
mordor says on 9/Oct/14
CR7 is a tall guy dudes he is almost in 6''2 range that's obvious.
mario says on 8/Oct/14
@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
mordor says on 7/Oct/14
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
Fred says on 2/Oct/14
185.8cm (maybe) . Cristiano Ronaldo is 1.85
Usually standing on your toes in photos

Probably closer to 186 than 185

Ahahah, this "Celebheights 188" is the best, seriously...
"In the first he looks 179, in the second 181, and then 189-190... So let's do the average and he's gotta be 185." I hope he's just trolling or he has serious problems.
mordor says on 1/Oct/14
@Celebheights 188 CM
Not serious conlusions.
mordor says on 29/Sep/14
Check those pics he is clearly not tiptoeing then to get your conclusions.
Tip Toe says on 28/Sep/14
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.

You do realise, that he usually tiptoes in team photos and does other tricks to look taller in photos? He is 6 foot. Case closed.

in that pic there are at least 10 cm beetwen them...and ibra isn't over 193-194, he is 5-7 cm under 198-199 goalkeeper isaksson
Ally says on 27/Sep/14
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
tor ibrahimovic is 195cm so there is an 7-8cm difference.
the same at their night heights in your photo which are 1-2 cm less from 187 peak os cr and 195 peak pf what have u proven?nothing.

check that video from a match a year ago i think berween bayern munich & real madrit and open the video on the first half and specifically between 41.40minute and 42.10minute approximately where when pepe is on the ground there is a croud around him and you can see ronaldo with 187cm mandzukic, ronaldo with 192cm boateng clearly and finally ronaldo with 186cm thomas muller not that clear just in the end of this stage.You can get some rough conclusions there and i wait you to share them with me: Click Here

only rui patricio is tiptoeing i have seen this photo again fully revealed.
hugo almeida is no less than 191cm so ronaldo is 187cm midday maybe even 188cm morning height.

@187 cm Are their listings accurate or exaggerated? And he could be on his tip-toes a bit here, knowing that they are tall guys. You can't see his feet. I've seen a few players do this on the back row of team line-up photos.

@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

@Jay 184cm
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!!

Stop repeatedly posting your random, deluded opinion and come with some evidence. Thus far we have a laser, an official listing and pictorial evidence (some of which I have presented if you scroll down and seem to be ignoring) that suggest 1.85 m.

and why has balo been listed as 189cm?they lie about his height?are they so inaccurate at measuring his height?dont think so...

If i'm not wrong, i saw some pics of Pogba and Balotelli sometime ago and they did look similar. Rob insists Balo is no more than 6'1, so it's hard to believe Pogba is much taller...
Calvin says on 3/Sep/14
Appe, he could still have grown a bit of course seeing as he's under 21 years old, but to me he doesn't look over 188. His long legs could also lead to him seeming taller than he really is.

Same with Daniel Sturridge, but he is listed taller. Before moving to Liverpool he was 6'2. Now he is 6ft, but I think he is really 5'10 (179cm maximum)

Yeah i guess so(186cm seems legid height for him).I say his peak is around 187,2cm early in the morning though.
Fredd says on 29/Aug/14
Mordor, there was a time, like last 6months, the real madrid site had his height 186.5 cm. I think that's a fair shout. But to me he's a solid 186cm
mordor says on 29/Aug/14
I didnt wanna fight you over.I just didnt really accept what u were sayimg about cr7 comparison with lustig.Ok maybe its not the best angle but you can see some conclusions there.Which are right.Lustig at 189cm towers over him at least 3cm.

Dude, it seems that we have the same opinion on this topic. Why on earth would you fight me over this? Anyway, this is my final reply to you.

I have to mention that his official site lists him at 186cm.
mordor says on 28/Aug/14
Guys CR7 is a legit 187CM approximaetly.
Morning height:187,5CM
Evening height:186CM
Most accurate average estimation of mine is 186,8CM(most of the day being that height).
Dural says on 28/Aug/14

I doubt Jese is 178cm as listed, maybe 175cm.
Modric I believe is 171-172cm. Benzema was listed 181cm before the 184cm listing btw. Never trust any official heights.

johnmarco says on 27/Aug/14
@dural well kroos is just 24, so i a couple years ago they had him 180cm at bayern, which was probably his height when he was 16-18, i really think kroos is what he's listed, now james, yea i can believe 178cm but they are sometimes he looks a solid 178cm and other times he looks 180cm, im just gunna say he's 179cm . Also how tall do you guys think jese rodriguez is?
mordor says on 27/Aug/14
No.Haha their difference is clear they walk shoulder to shoulder.You must be blind not to see that.
Jamal says on 26/Aug/14

Yeah, I think it's hard to make comparisons from an eagle's eye perspective, so I am not going to do that.
mordor says on 26/Aug/14
I dont think so its from bad angle.You can clearly see whats his height there.I think 187 is his max height whereas night height is 185,5.You didnt compare him to lustig though.Wait u to do so.
Jamal says on 25/Aug/14

Yeah, I saw that match on TV at the time, and he did not seem far off from the tall Swedes.

The video you posted is shot from a bad angle for judging heights.

I think that at any point during the day, Ronaldo's height is between 185,5 and 187,5. This is the best estimate I can come up with. To add to that, I think that he would measure below 186 only after having played a match at night. Clearly arguing millimeters is pointless here.

He is listed at 186,5 on the Real Madrid website. He has also been measured below that. However you can not be measured as taller than you actually are, while you can always measure shorter than your real height (ex. depending on posture, depending on time of day and physical activity before then, etc...). So one should expect that he is around that mark. Real Madrid post heights even with .2 millimeters, which means that they do not usually round up.

As to your 1.5 cm for an average person, I do not know how true is that. I can measure at 181 in the morning and at 178 at night after having played an hour of football, so that is definitely not 1.5cm

Either way, you seem to think that Ronaldo is taller than 185cm (which I do think as well), so I do not quite get the point of the lengthy discussion here.
mordor says on 24/Aug/14
In the previous post that i uploades a video i am not saying that lustig is 100% that height of 189cm but if you assume that he is as i did then you can have some conclusions for CR7 next to him.
mordor says on 22/Aug/14
Ok height is a changing variable throughout the day but it changes no more than 1.5cm for an average person(so not a big deal man come on).Which means CR7 with the perfect posture and the ultra-strenghtened abs he has he may shrink at about 1cm.So yes you can pinpoint his height at least with centimeters which is what counts anyway.Millimeters in height are practically innoticable anyway.I have uploaded a video some time ago which i will upload again where you can have a nice comparison as Sweden's diffender Mikael Lustig at 189cm roughly talks to him as they walk exactly next to each other(shoulder to shoulder)and even starring at hime face to face.So you can check it as well as other guys checking that topic an tell me your assumption.So take that video and look between 6.17-6.26 min:
So do have your conclusions and share them with me.(this match at the vid above was conducted on november 2013 so it is recent).

@dural, dude did you see how tall he stood next to the rest of squad in the atletico game? He looked benzema's height when he stood next to him. Better yet he looked only an inch shorter than muller and was taller than both ozil and reus. I think kroos's listing is spot on 182cm. As for james i can't really say, but i thibk it's kind of odd that people say robben looks a solid 5'11 when to me james looks more of a 5'11 than robben. Am i the only one who sees this?
johnmarco says on 21/Aug/14
@teej, i can believe 184cm for benzema, he was listed that before those 187cm listings came up, but standing next to ronaldo he looks 183cm, and even better, next to gareth bale(who im convinced isn't 183cm, more 184cm and change) he looks a little shorter. I think benzems is a solid 6'(183cm)he and ramos are the same height anyway, but he's def not 187cm
Jamal says on 20/Aug/14

As has been documented, it is difficult to pinpoint Cristiano's real height. In general, when he stands by 6ft guys he seems to edge them out more than by what 2 centimeters would appear. Also when standing next to 6ft2 guys, he appears to be very close to them in height, if not equal.

I do not have a clear assumption, as height is a changing variable even throughout the day, so it is hard to give a person a fixed number of centimeters, and expect them to always be exactly that tall. For Ronaldo, I think that most of the time he is between 6ft1 and 6ft2, but he should be closer to 6ft2.

In any case, I think he probably has what could be considered as the ideal height for a football player, even though this notion is very vague and rightly is rarely discussed.
teej says on 19/Aug/14
Rob, how tall would you say Karim Benzema is? He's listed as 187cm which is my height, but i dont quite buy it, i seem to think he looks fairly tall due to his physique but looks no more than 184cm. Ive seen numerous pics with him and ronaldo, and ronaldo always seems to be an inch to an inch and a half taller, comfartably taller than benzema.
[Editor Rob: he seems pretty close, but certainly not a 187 guy, 184 maybe]
mordor says on 19/Aug/14
whats the meaning of arguing about james's height this topic is for cr7.
mordor says on 19/Aug/14
When you say slightly?Can you be more specific and give your own assumption?
Dural says on 19/Aug/14
177cm for James. Kroos is most likely 180cm.
johnmarco says on 19/Aug/14
@sss 5'9? Now that's just rediculous man, lowest for james is 178cm, other than that next to kroos he looks the 180cm, it's possible 179cm as well
johnmarco says on 19/Aug/14
@rob, i'd go with the second, i think it's more him wanting to stand out in the picture
sss says on 18/Aug/14
James might be even 5'9 range.
Jamal says on 18/Aug/14
For the gazillionth time, this guy is (slightly, but noticeably) taller than what he is listed here.

@185m you are the only one inventing your own facts here, you downgrade every other person qe compare ronaldo to, where has lamlard at 181? Where has ramos at 182? Etc you are the only making up other heights
johnmarco says on 17/Aug/14
So because he was tiptoeing...makes him insecure about his height? I don't think anyone should look into that, on flat feet he stands tallers 6fters and some 6'1 guys.
[Editor Rob: Maybe he does want to look taller.

It might also be if there are some photographers down quite low he's wanting to make sure all his head is in the photo from the lower photographers?

@johnmarco Ronaldo was measured as 185.1 cm in Tested to the limit. 186.5 might be his morning height. There is a new picture of Gareth Bale, Marcelo and James, James there looks 178 cm too. He is 180 cm in the morning I think. Ozil is listed 183 cm in transfermarkt, website that usually has players' right profiles, I too think that Ozil is just 180 cm
johnmarco says on 9/Aug/14
@ally actually i think ozil is listed 181cm(though i think he's 180cm flat) james looked a good 5'11 in the wc, so if i had to guess i'd say he's a weak 5'11, ronaldo's height is the real question here, this isn't the first time he made 5'11 guys look 5'9 so im always confused, ronaldo was listed 186.5cm on real madrid's website and i used to believe it! I think ronaldo is a strong 186cm with a great built and perfect posture, he really stands tall!
mordor says on 8/Aug/14
what time was cr7 measured?and how much does that affect his height?i think the average man shrinks 1,5cm during the day.
Ally says on 8/Aug/14
What do you guys think about James Rodriguez and Mesut Ozil? James is like 6-7 cm shorter than CR7 but is listed as 180. Ozil is listed as 183 cm:))) thats just ridiculous! He looks at least 1 inch shorter than 182 cm Podolski and like 5-6 cm shorter than guys like Klose and Muller. He's maximum 180. James must be 178
Ally says on 4/Aug/14
Mertesacker looks 10 cm taller than Khedira, around 20 cm taller than Podolski. I thinks he is 200-202 cm tall
Josh says on 30/Jul/14
Yes Arch, his physique/height is really fantastic. Great for attracting women (ofc with his money/looks/fame it is just the cherry on top)

And yeah it is actually rare to see a top athlete in that kind of shape. Football players sometimes because they are big all around, but even there pretty rare to see such rippedness and obvious isolation work (Laron Landry would be an example)

But most soccer/tennis players whatever are lean and in good shape but lack that obviously contrived underwear model Ronaldo has. Definitely a guy who cares about what he looks like shirtless with the obvious work on every muscle group and abs and the tanning and all.

To bring it back to height, looks a hair taller than Nadal in the Nike commercial. Clearly a flat 6'1.
mordor says on 24/Jul/14
mertesacker you mentiones looks always way taller than everyone.even 193 cm neuer seems to be about 8cm shorter than him.i would personally put mertesacker at 199,5cm range.
Arch Stanton says on 24/Jul/14
I mean, I might be wrong and he's motivated only be his sport, but anybody who has the self-motivation to do 3,000 situps a day Click Here would far surpass the requirements of being a footballer!!!
Arch Stanton says on 24/Jul/14
@Josh, yeah he's ripped as hell, does look that 6'1" 170 pound sort of fighting weight a lot of the UFC fighters are. He looks in even better shape than some of them. Click Here For Arnie to say you've got a fantastic physique is hands down the biggest compliment anybody could give you!! All I know is how much dedication is takes to have 6% bodyfat or whatever he has and it really comes down to body obsession and a narcissistic personality, which I don't think is a good thing, even if he needs to be fit for his career.
Arch Stanton says on 24/Jul/14
Van Persie definitely generally looks taller than a flat 6 ft I've seen listed for him anyway, although that Mertesacker pic he really looks struggling with 6 ft, unless Mert is nearer 6 ft 7 as Rob has suggested.
Josh says on 23/Jul/14
I agree with Rob that Ronaldo is 170 pounds. He is very lean and slim, just ripped., even his legs are decent but not huge, just insanely toned and defined. They are not big enough that I can see them substantially adding to his weight.

He's been listed anywhere from 165 to 186, you can't really go by each listing. He's currently listed at 176 pounds in a lot of places, 170 in a few others.

Probably 176 after off season training at his bulkiest, but 170 is a good guess for his weight generally throughout the season and for most of the year. He has a body like many ufc fighters who are 6'1 and 170 when cut for their weigh in.
