I watched last Real Madrid match and Cristiano looked much taller than Benzema. Cristiano strong/solid 1.85 (6' 1") and Benzema 1.82.

I'm sure he is 184.5cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Feb/17
More like 187.5-188cm out of bed if you ask me
James said on 16/Feb/17
@6 foot 17 yrs still growing I think his pose made him lose a significant amount of height. These flat shoes had virtually no platform. Then again, it's only my opinion. 6'1" is OK for him.
Peter said on 16/Feb/17
He's really like a little bit above average Portugese male height. I would put him at 5'9. Here he is with Sir Alex Ferguson Click Here . Notice how he is on his toes and just edges him out. I would say that he is 5cm, 2 inches taller than him and SAF is 5'7 so 5'9 or 5'9.5 would be right. He gives the impression of being much taller though.

Hey Rob,
What do you think of Sami Khediras height?

Editor Rob: Big Sami can pull off looking 6ft 2.

Rob,the pose in the video up there won't make him lose more than 0.5/0.75(if I'm right) which he regain by his half inch boot.. and the measurement is In the morning as shown in the video .. if he measured nearer 185 at that time he could be more 6 ft 0.75 at night,what do you think?

Im peruvian.

My brother is a strong 6'1.25 and in a good day he is 6'2.25 without bust a gut in both cases.
Cristiano is a strong 184.5cm (about) and 186.5cm out of bed.

Cristiano up to his old tricks again During the team photo V Sociedad Last week. haha

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/17
I think he falls to 6ft1 flat at his low and is pushing 6ft2 when he wakes. So he most likely did get measured in the 186-187cm zone earlier in the day
Johnson said on 18/Jan/17
@ly the listings stand mathematically. If the celebrity appear 185 cm it can be from 184.5 to 185.4. Just convert the feet and inches to centimetres and you will se what is (6'1 185 cm)
ly said on 15/Jan/17
Rob if you were to list him to the nearest cm would you list him 185 or 186
Editor Rob: 185.5 is probably a decent figure, if we were to go to 1/2 cm...I do think Ronaldo at night is nearer to 185 than 186 though.
Cristiano said on 13/Jan/17
has really good posture
mickey said on 9/Jan/17
yep. 185-186
Johnson said on 9/Jan/17
@Hijopotamus interesting figures. I trust all except the ones leaked without decimals, and the Kaká and Marcelo heights. One year later Marcelo could grew up because since then there were 174 listings. So it was a poor day for him 171.8. I bet next year he would be 173.5 in medicals. And Kaka and Cristiano heights look mixed up. Kaka 186.5 would be very typical no less than that
Rory said on 5/Jan/17
Doubt he's ever dipped below 185cm, I could see his extreme low after a 90min match being about 185cm on the dot. On a relaxed day aboard his yacht though he could probably measure near 186cm at night. He's a genuine 6ft 1 guy, not a fake sort of 182,3 or 4 guy who claims it. I don't believe he's a full 186 though, a toned 186 guy like him with good posture would often pass for around 6ft 2, Ronaldo seldomly looks 6ft 2 range, more a solid 6ft 1. Close to 6ft 2 out of bed mind you.
Hijopotamus said on 4/Jan/17
James, yes I'd say you are right.

Ronaldo Nazario had to be 183 when he played in Spain. Couldnt be shorter back then but who knows?
Real Madrid gave very exact figures like :

Ramos 183'2
Alonso 182,7
Ronaldo 186,5 measured one day and 185,5 another different day.
Rakitic was 182,6 in 2014 and 183,5 in 2015.
Some players were shorter after a bad sleep and measured again days later and improved by one cm.

Interesting...Rob what do you think?
Editor Rob: I think these are bust a gut measurements, of course it's still a valid measurement, but they aren't going to be evening heights.
Canson said on 4/Jan/17
The more pics I see with him he looks a genuine 6'1" guy. Maybe he's 185-185.5 at his lowest to where he's with 1/8" under the mark but I wouldn't say he's any less on a given day than within 1/4" of it. Meaning he is close enough to where he is legit
SportsHeight said on 4/Jan/17
Rob, what's the highest and lowest you think Ronaldo could possibly be?
Editor Rob: Sports, from all I've seen, the normal lunch-afternoon range I'd say was 185 low, 186 high.

Only earlier in the day like 10am would I say he'd be more a 186 guy.

Cristiano does look 2.5 cm (an inch) taller than Bale. At worst, he is at least 2 cm taller than him. Bale is 1.83 and Cristiano 1.85.

There is no way Cristiano is under 1.85 as you are suggesting.
James said on 1/Jan/17
@Hijopotamus In MY opinion, Ronaldo Nazario never was 6 ft. Never. When he played at Barcelona he didn't look so tall as 1.83. I remember in Pro Evolution Soccer 3 he was listed as 1.80. I don't think he was that low but... 1.83??

Click Here

Look at this video. The scene at 1:40 shows Ronaldo is a solid 1.85 next to Ronaldo. Pause at 3:53, 5' 11.75" (1.82) Sergio Ramos is a bit taller than him.

Click Here

What a difference between him and Cristiano... and he was only 37 years old in that pic so still at his peak!!

1.83 is way too high for him, he almost never scored head goals. And he never gave the impression of being as tall as Ramos or Bale.

Ronaldo Nazario looks around 1.81 to me.
Hijopotamus said on 1/Jan/17
James, that's correct, excellent job BUT that doesn't make Cristiano 185-186. Don't forget he wasn't barefoot...and that's my point. In any case, I can't see 2,54 cm taller than Bale.
Ronaldo Nazario seems to have lost a good inch, doesn't he? He was a real 183 when played for Barcelona...
James said on 30/Dec/16
@Hijopotamus Cristiano is an inch taller than Gareth Bale, 6 ft 1 is OK for him. The reason why you looked similar to him is because of your military shoes. With military shoes everyone can look taller. Plus 1.82 is only 3 cm shorter than 1.85 so not a big difference.

Look at Ronaldo Nazario in normal sneakers with Rafa Nadal:

Click Here
Click Here

He looks at least 2 cm shorter than Nadal. But now look at Ronaldo in military shoes next to Nadal:

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

Now suddenly Ronaldo Nazario looks even taller than Nadal.

Do you see my point? With military shoes on, you add more cm to your real height.
Canson said on 30/Dec/16
@Hijopotamus: that is a possibility I guess. I didn't think before but because he stands on his tippytoes. Tricky thing is proportions build etc. a 6'0-6'0.5 guy with longer limbs broad shoulders thin and good posture could give the illusion of 6'1-6'2 honestly. I'd gander he absolutely isn't below 6'0.5 at his lowest which means he's wake up 186 still and he 184-184.5. However he did measure 185 but that could be an earlier measurement as well. If he really is that low it brings attention to the other measurements like Pique and Ibra Pogba etc. 2 of the 3 look their actual listed heights ibra and Pogba but not Pique. Pique and ibra are easier to spot from my angle being a strong 6'4 (194 cm afternoon) where Ibra looks my height even tho he could even look taller than me with his build but Pique clearly doesn't look more than 6'3.5-.75 imho
Hijopotamus said on 30/Dec/16
Alex, I wouldnt be surprised. I met him at La Finca in Madrid. I think he is 184 with a military perfect straight posture and a long neck and small shoulders which make him look taller. 186 is way too far, really. I'm 182 and my friend said we looked same height but i wore military shoes and dont know what he was wearing. Have you guys watched the video of Ronaldo with super champion pro MMA fighter Connor McGregor? Connor is 5'9 and barefoot beside Ronaldo in trainers, have s look and don't tell me he stands 6'1"

@Rob how tall does chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen look next to Ronaldo? Click Here
Editor Rob: could be between 5ft 9-10 range or 5ft 9 if Ronaldo had a looser stance.
Leonardo 1.73m said on 28/Dec/16
100 votes = 6'1.03 = 185.4cm

Without bust a gut should be 184.9cm like my guess in the midday
Canson said on 26/Dec/16
Rob has him pegged
Rory said on 26/Dec/16
@Alex..I honestly will never understand how someone could look at Ronaldo and say he looks 182-3. Ronaldo always looks solid tall in every situation, be it on the football pitch or when he's pictured off the field. Then add in that he measured on 2/3 separate occasions 6'1 range and you must be a troll. He was listed 184 when he first joined United aged 18 and I think that was true at the time, but by 20-21, he'd gained and he was looking 6'1. He was never listed as 182, Alex is a Messi fan boy.
6 foot 17 yrs still growing said on 26/Dec/16
@Alex do you have anything that shows the 182-183 he was listed at .. I heard 184 and 186 and the most common 185 but never heard that he was listed 182 or 183 after joining man united
Alex said on 25/Dec/16
He was listed as 182-183 (6') while playing for Manchester United...in my opinion he is still that height without shoes...he really doesn't look in any situation to be 185-186 (6'1) as listed while playing for Real Madrid
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/16
Rob, could you make an argument for 186cm?
Editor Rob: before lunch I think he could hit that...by evening I think roughly 6ft 1.
trumpslave said on 22/Dec/16
Looking the comments and pictures that people is posting here there is no possible way that Cristiano's height is 185 he is clearly 2 cms taller than Bale who is 184 so Cristiano Ronaldo's real height is 186 cm Rob he deserves to be upgraded
Rory said on 22/Dec/16
Actually I've had a change of heart on Bale. I thought 6'0.5 was very possible and I still think it is but all things considered probably a strong 6ft range is closer.
Canson said on 21/Dec/16
@James: correct he likely won't fall below 6'1" (if he does somehow maybe 1/8" at night. I agree 185-185.5 at his lowest
Truth said on 21/Dec/16
I'd bet you just about never drops below 185. Should be upgraded to 186. When next to just about ever soccer player listed at 185, Ronaldo edges them out and looks substantially taller than 6 footers.
Rory said on 21/Dec/16
@James,

I saw you posted pics of Bale and I thought if this is that picture yet again of Bale withRonaldo after Portugal v Wales I'm going to swear, and yep....
Rory said on 21/Dec/16
Bale has also been listed 186cm on occasions although clearly he's not that height, although out of bed I think it's entirely possible. For me there's no way Bale is a flat 6 footer, I see him as 6'0.25 or 6'0.5. He edges out pretty much every other player listed as 6foot, and pulls off 6 ft 1 at times. Look at him with people like Ashley Williams,Rio Ferdinand,Harry Kane,Ronaldo,Arbeloa he looks over 183.
Josh said on 21/Dec/16
James, you are more pedantic than dogmatic
MDV said on 21/Dec/16
@James
I always thought like you that Bale is no more than 183. He looks a solid 183 and sometimes even weak 184. But why he has always been listed at 183 if he was really 184 cm?
I consider Bale a little over 6 ft... Let's say between 6 ft and 6 ft 0.25...
Ramos has always a good posture and can look a legit 6 ft but not a solid one like Bale...
Benzema ( listed at 187 lool) can look between 5ft 11.75 and 6 ft.
Ronaldo a solid 6 ft 1
This is how i feel regarding those players. What do you feel?
What do you think about James Rodriguez? 177 cm? He always looked shorter than Ancelotti listed as 180 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/16
Out of bed: 187-188cm
Before bed: 185-186cm
James said on 20/Dec/16
@Rory Take under consideration Bale isn't taller than 6 ft Xabi Alonso:
Click Here

I don't know why would Real Madrid downgrade their own players. If Bale has been officially listed as 6 ft, I think that's a reliable measurement.
MDV said on 20/Dec/16
@Rory
Benzema is not a solid 6 footer but a legit 6 ft; very similar to Ramos that has perfect posture and looks taller. And I m not sure Bale is that tall; sometimes look a just over 6 ft and other times 6 ft 0.5.
Rory said on 20/Dec/16
Ronaldo - 187.5cm out of bed, 185-185.5cm lowest height. Solid 6'1
Bale - 186cm out of bed, 183.5-184cm lowest height. Decent 6'0.5
Benzema - 185 cm out of bed, 182.5-183cm lowest height. Solid 6ft.
Rory said on 20/Dec/16
Naa he doesn't fall to 184.4 Imo. I've always thought with Ronaldo he's likely to measure a touch over 6'1 than under it. Some people claim 6'1 and just don't really look it and are actually 182-3, Ronaldo is someone who I think if he claimed 6'1 many would be startled because especially women would probably assume he was 6'2. lowest possible mark after a match is probably 185cm flat, I doubt he ever dips below that. In the afternoon on a relaxed day he'd be very near 186cm.

I think Bale, Benzema and Ramos are all of them 6 ft. Bale is not over 6 ft.
James said on 20/Dec/16
I am starting to think if Cristiano is a solid 6 ft 1, then Gareth Bale could be 6 foot. The reason why we reject the idea that Bale could be 6 ft is because we have the preconception that a 6 ft man can't look really tall like Bale does.

I see at least 2 cm of difference. If Cristiano is 1.85 then Bale must be 1.83 for sure. Other Real Madrid players are overlisted, but Cristiano and Bale measurements are very reliable as 1.85 and 1.83 respectively.
James said on 19/Dec/16
@MDV Solid 1.85/Weak 1.86 are synonyms. A solid 1.85 is a person who is 1.85 in the evening and at least 1.86 during the morning. Yeah Cristiano is a weak 1.86 because he is that height part of the day. But if you read my comments above I said he should be listed as 6 foot 1, since he is 185.5 cm in the evening :).

@Josh I am not dogmatic, I gave you three logical ways of refute the official listed weights of Cristiano Ronaldo. You linked an unofficial (therefore unreliable) claim from a reporter.
Leonardo 1.73m said on 19/Dec/16
Guys remember, medical test are with bust a gut measurements and forced posture Click Here

Celebheights measurements are in the midday, Rob Paul says that (5-6 hours out of bed)
So Cristiano is 184.4cm at his lowest and 184.9cm at midday in a normal day because: Bust a gut increases about 5 millimeters and forced posture 1 millimeter. So 185.4cm - 0.5cm = 184.9cm

Out of bed 186.4cm
Midday 184.9cm
Low 184.4cm
MDV said on 19/Dec/16
@James
Ok. So for you, Rob Paul should be listed 174cm because this is a height of his day?
No way. Cristiano as strong 185 is ok but not a weak 186. 186 is his morning height and around 185 in afternoon/evening. Otherwise all people in this site would need a bonus of "weak" 0.25 in due to the fact that in morning are that tall.
James said on 19/Dec/16
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover @Johnson I agree with you guys. Cristiano is probably 185.5 at teatime/evening so 6' 1" is a perfect listing for this site. He was listed as 186.5 at realmadrid.com years ago because it was a very early measurement.
Josh said on 19/Dec/16
James,

First you said he was definitely not skinnier than Ramos at 81 Kg. You asked if I was "really suggesting" that and added "No way". I see now you accept it because Real Madrid lists it, but no apology of course. If you don't want to believe ABC interviewing Nadal and reporting that he lost 2 kg from a new diet (and they had his right starting weight) and need it actually coming from his mouth to believe it (why would they randomly make it up, they could do the diet story without listing his weight) then I don't know what to say. That's your prerogative but it's not rational at all, and again looks like you just want to be right at any costs, rather than being rational.
James said on 19/Dec/16
@MDV Cristiano is a weak 1.86 because he is part of the day that height. If he were a strong 1.86 he would be most part of the day in that range.
James said on 19/Dec/16
@Josh. If you wanna refute the 2 last official Cristiano's listings of 84 and 80 kg, then you have three options:

Option a) Show me an official Real Madrid's document where Cristiano is listed as 78 kg.
Option b) Show me a video of Cristiano weighing himself over a bathroom scale.
Option c) Show me a personal interview with Cristiano where he personally claims to be 78 kg himself.
MDV said on 18/Dec/16
weak 186 for me is a guy who is around 185.8 in the afternoon.And cristiano is for sure less. So he can be a solid 185 but not a weak 186 @James
And do not post pic where you can't see footwear or if the soil is flat; total useless like your last comment.
Josh said on 18/Dec/16
James he is listed 80kg at Real Madrid site which was last updated in 2014. Do you think the reporter just made it up? I mean really. This is a bit ridiculous you won't accept this, it makes it look like you just want to be right and not look facts. Disappointing. Your analysis of his height is wrong also and doesn't make sense. This site defines how it lists people's height, which is barefoot low or at best height after being up several hours. Again, looks like you just want to be right, when all evidence points towards between 185-185.5 afternoon/night height for C. Ronaldo.
MDV said on 17/Dec/16
@ Rampage
Is very unbelievable because otherwise he will be listed at 1.86. He is often listed at 185 cm. He uses tricks to look taller like internal lifts, perfect posture, tip-toeing. He has completely cheated you.
Rob, can you please add Sergio Ramos? He is in extraordinary shape and very discussed in the world for his goals in the last minutes of his matches ! Best defender at the moment in the world!
6 foot is perfect for him: always 2 cm more than Casillas

Johnson said on 17/Dec/16
I think there are errors in measurements that's why Kaká 185.6 and so in a bad day for him. Cristiano 185.5 tea time, medical tests around 186 cm is reliable
James said on 17/Dec/16
@MDV Where do you see only 1 cm between Bale and Ramos?

Click Here
James said on 17/Dec/16
@MDV First, don't be disrespectful. Don't say again "I'm not smart" at something because I have never been impolite with you. Second, I do think Cristiano is 1.86 in the morning, that's why I say he is a weak 1.86. I know this site considers evening height, but not exactly the lowest, I read Rob saying he considers teatime height. I guess teatime means 6 pm, that's not the "night" height or lowest in my opinion. I think Cristiano at night (11 pm) only can be 1.85 flat at most. At teatime I guess he is around 185.3 or 185.4 cm as you say.
James said on 17/Dec/16
@Josh Cristiano didn't say "I weigh 78 kg", the journalist concluded that for himself. Not reliable. Cristiano should be the one saying it. The journalist never asked his weight to Cristiano, that is not even an interview.

This is part of the original text:

"Ronaldo is said to be determined to gradually lose his fabled muscle mass in order to maintain his speed as he ages, with ABC reporting that he has shed two kilograms since January 2015 to be at his current weight of 78 kilograms."

First, they say "it is said", so it's only a guess. Second, they say he has lost 2 kg and now he is 78 kg. How do they know he was 80 kg, when he was officialy 84 kg at real madrid.com years ago? Not a realiable source, therefore not an evidence.

An "evidence" would be an interview where the interviewer ask personally his weight to Cristiano.
Leonardo 1.73m said on 16/Dec/16
Strong 6'1 is for example Kaka or Derrick Rose.

This guess is perfect for Cristiano in a normal day:

Out of bed: 186.9cm
Midday: 185.3cm
Low: 184.8cm

Why would real madrid downgrade any of gareth bale or cristiano ..there is actually a lot of players in real Madrid that aren't very popular "won't have tv programme measuring them" upgraded or used to be upgraded like casillas or like morata, pepe, benzema... I'm madridista and I watch football "soccer" alot and the different teams height state Is alot of times not right..they used to have ronaldo taller than kaka at 186.5 but after different companies that cristiano works with measured him at 185 ..they downgraded him.
Canson said on 16/Dec/16
I agree with James in that Renaldo is likely a good 6'1" guy. Now yes height varies throughout the day but I can't see Renaldo dipping below 6'1" flat (185.5 cm), which to James's credit is essentially weak 186. May even be 185.6-185.7. He looks 6'1" more regularly and properly than most other 6'1" guys on this site do tbh. I mean I guarantee this guy is at least as tall if not taller than Roger Federer or Nadal who are both listed 6'1" as well
Rory said on 16/Dec/16
I think 6 foot is fine for Ramos. Is visibly taller than Casillas who is at worst 5'11, and possibly a tad more. Usually looks within a half inch of Bale who might be 6'0.5.
Josh said on 15/Dec/16
@James, absolutely a reliable source. It was ABC news and they interviewed him. Unbelievable how people argue in the face of evidence.
MDV said on 15/Dec/16
@James
Your not so smart in judging height. Why Cristiano should have been listed at 185 cm if he is 186 for you? He always look shorter than Morata (187) and Kaka (186). I agree with you if you consider him 186 in the morning, but at the end of the day he is always closer to 185 than 186. Plus he is a guy that really cares about his height, so he always have a perfect posture to make other people (like you) think he is taller, and sometimes he tip-toeing. Without those tricks he looks really 185. Take a new look at him and you will see that if measured with both feet at the ground he will be 185 at night.
My estimation at night in cm:
Ronaldo 185.3
Bale 183.9
Benzema 182.8
Ramos 182.9
Casillas 181.0
James said on 14/Dec/16
Canson is absolutely right.

Click Here

Ramos is 2 cm shorter than Bale, therefore 1.82 at most.

@Johnson Real Madrid past medical tests are not reliable. For example, Cristiano was listed as 1 cm taller than Kaká!
Rory said on 14/Dec/16
I'm not sure there's such a thing as a strong 6'0.75, I think you'd just call that person 6'1.
Johnson said on 14/Dec/16
@Canson No, I mean barefoot in medical tests. In shoes Ramos would be 185 solid in medicals
Canson said on 14/Dec/16
@Johnson: youre listing the heights in shoes. Ramos is at most 182 barefoot.
Canson said on 14/Dec/16
Ramos is at most 182
Johnson said on 14/Dec/16
Ramos solid 183 cm (183.1 183.2 or 183.3)
James said on 13/Dec/16
@Josh Not a reliable source.
Josh said on 13/Dec/16
James, why are you arguing?...there is no mystery here. It has been reported on several sites and hes been interviewed about it. You can find it easily. He himself stated his weight at 78 KG beginning of this year and said he plans to further lose a kilo a year to prolong his career. He is currently around 170 pounds. He has lost weight over the years and said so himself. Many people who are slim and ripped look bigger than they are, but again there should be no room for debate.

Cristiano weak 1.86 and Ramos 1.82

Click Here

I see 4 cm of difference here
Leonardo 1.73m said on 11/Dec/16
My guess for Cristiano Ronaldo: 185.3cm, practically 6'1

Out of bed: 6'1.5
Midday: 6'1
Night: 6'0.75

Sometimes he looks a strong 6'1 because he has a very forced posture, very good physique and small head. But with all that several times he looks only a strong 6'0.75
The average eyelevel for a 6'1 guy is 12 cm, Cristiano's eyelevel looks high but this factor I not considere when i compare him in height with other celebrities.
James said on 11/Dec/16
@Josh I also remember the complete list of Real Madrid players' weight listed at Click Here in 2010: Click Here

Cristiano 186.5 cm 84 kg
Sergio Ramos 183.2 cm 81 kg
Casillas 182.2 cm 85 kg

Are you really suggesting Cristiano is skinnier than 81 kg Sergio Ramos? No way.

@Josh He can't look so muscular with only 77 kg. He is obviously around 81-82 kg with his height (weak 1.86). If he were only 170 lbs he would look so skinny like Beckham. And that's not the case.

Btw, doesn't Sergio Ramos look under 6 ft in this pic?

James said on 10/Dec/16
@Rory I personally don't think Bale is crouched down in this picture:

Anyway, thanks for being a rational man. I agree, 1.84 is definitely too low for Cristiano.
Josh said on 10/Dec/16
Sewell, you can find an article saying he is 172 pounds (78 kg) and losing 1 kg per year to prolong his career, that was at the beginning of this year, so I'd assume he is around 170 now.

James, sorry you're wrong. He's clearly lost a bit of weight, around 170...search for it and you will see several articles from official sources verifying it. He went on a fruit heavy diet.

Kaka looks a bit taller than Ronaldo, I'd guess him 186-187cm zone
Rory said on 6/Dec/16
@James why do you keep using that useless photo though ? Bale is basically crouched down there in that shot and so naturally looks about 2 or more inches shorter. We all know the real difference between Bale and Ronaldo is 1-2 cms. Ronaldo definitely isn't 184 though, he'd measure 185-6 range evening.
James said on 4/Dec/16
@SewellAnthony In 2010, Cristiano was listed as 186.5 cm and 84 kg in Real Madrid webpage. He is obviously over 80 kg. Around 81-82 kg.

Look at this video. Cristiano Ronaldo is 6-7 cm taller than Ronaldo Nazario. Ronaldo Nazario is even shorter than 1.82 Sergio Ramos in the video.

@6 foot 17 yrs still growing Good question. He had his legs noticeably open when he was measured. In that pose you lose height. When you are measured, preferably your feet should stand together to have an accurate listing.
Jay 184cm said on 2/Nov/16
@ James Good photo. I can't see more than 2cm between Ronaldo and Ramos here. Not much between them. Ronaldo has a weird body shape - long legs etc - that makes him look proportionally taller than he actually is.
Interesting to see Toni Kroos there too. Listed as 182cm but not standing as straight as the other two. If he did, I think he would just about hit 182cm and be a fraction shorter than Ramos.

@james .... In the pic of ronaldo in socks he is on his toes...not sure how you missed that??? ... And if he was measured in shoes for a wax and meased with a laser scan on the documentary at 185.1 early ish in the day... Then why do think he's 186 or over? Like how much more actual evidence would you want... I would say bale is 183.5, (6'0.25) as does rob... And ronaldo 185 ( 6'1) as he is also listed here. Id say those two are pretty spot on.. And useful to compare others...
Rory said on 26/Oct/16
I suppose 186cm flat he could measure at 11am or midday, but I just feel it's not a mark he could hold into the evening when Imo he'd be nearer 185.
Rory said on 26/Oct/16
Well Pepe like Diego Costa isn't 6'2, potentially not even out of bed. I do see him as being 186cm though, and there's no way Imo he's shorter than Ronaldo. I've always felt both guys were very close but due to Ronaldo having more hair and possibly slightly better posture, Pepe when measured might edge him. I think I'm prepared to accept Ronaldo as being 2cms taller than Bale, but I think there's an equal chance there's just a half inch between them. Don't underestimate posture in these comparisons, Ronaldo is a guy who stands well, and a legit, lean 185 guy standing tall will easily look 186 even 187 at times, equally a 184 guy slouching might look just 183, even 182, and so in a picture you've then got over an inch difference between two guys who may actually measure within a similar range.

Ronaldo consistently looks above 185cm.
I'd have pegged him at 186cm,probably 187cm but for the fact that he's been caught tiptoeing quite a number of times.
I still believe an upgrade to 186 makes sense. But Rob seems to have good reasons for keeping him at 185.

By the way, I never have believed that Diego Costa is 188cm tall. He doesn't look it. Around 185-186 is my guess
Rory said on 21/Oct/16
On Diego Costa, I'm not rly sure if that guy is above 185cm, if you compare him to 187cm guys like John Terry and Thiago Motta, plus he looks identical in height to Ivanovic (185).
Rory said on 21/Oct/16
James, I don't think your pictures are very reliable though, I think Bales posture is pretty loose in most of them..when you see them in live footage in the football tunnel or wherever there's only about half an inch between them. I say Ronaldo is 6'1 legit, hardly dipping under that mark at all, and Bale 6'0.25-6'0.5.

Those pictures aren't a good reflection of the height difference between Ronaldo and Bale, based on them I'd say Ronaldo is 2 inches or more taller than Bale which just isn't the case. When stood with even posture Ronaldo looks just half an inch taller.

"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.

@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

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.

@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

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.

Comparing him with Bale, I am of the opinion that he is 186 cm (6' 1.25").

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".

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.

He was measured barefoot and with the legs noticeably open (feet should be together when measuring height).
Rory said on 7/Aug/16
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.

MD said on 3/Aug/16
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.

Rob, did you see this: Click Here

Conor is listed at 5'9 and Ronaldo is in shoes. What would you say the difference looks to be there? 4 inches? which would make Ronaldo 6'1 in shoes if Conor is really 5'9.

James Morata is 187 cm by fan juve
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.
James said on 27/Jul/16

He can be 6'1, either 6'0.5 or 6'1.

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.
LI said on 26/Jul/16
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.
James said on 25/Jul/16

His Waxwork's measurement made him lost almost 2 cm with that pose (only 1 cm if we take under consideration the shoes).
SportsHeight said on 25/Jul/16
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".
Johnson said on 22/Jul/16
@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
@Johno thanks for the interesting information! I didn't know about his measurement for Madam Tussauds.

He had his legs extremely open, losing 2 cm with that horrible posture. Plus that shoes were virtually flat.

If Cristiano were standing with his feet together and wearing Reebok classic (2 cm of platform) he could be easily 188 cm.
