He could pass off as the great Steve Irwin's brother.

@Rob, there's a typo English wildlife presenter'''s''', Funny thing is that he actually looks like he could be the brother of Steve Irwin, very similar looking around the eyes.

Common theme in the comments. We all thought he was average to lower average. With stocky build, so appears shortish.

Big, stocky guy! I thought he was shorter, like 5'9 1/2

Never thought of him as this tall. Always figured he was about 5'8 or 5'9. Must be his stocky build that made me think he was shorter.

Doesn't look as tall as this to me. He seems very average in height like 5'10.

Didn't realise he was this tall. I thought he was 5'9/5'10. There is something about his proportions that make him appear shorter.

Remember seeing him during the Olympics and i thought he looked about 5'8, but then i realised he was probably being interviewed by Dan Walker (Weak 6'5) or Steve Redgrave (Around 6'5).
Still surprised to see him this high never thought he looked tallish on TV.
Editor Rob: it is possible he was this height but lost a fraction after breaking back in a few places.
