@Valois

I think his weight gain is at least partly attributable to lifestyle.

182 peak
181 now
Valois 2.0 said on 21/Jul/19
I think he's a stronger 1,82, like 5'11.75. Could have been the best of all time, if wasn't for his knee injuries. He said he had hypothyroidism on his retirement press, maybe that's why he was overweight in the last 10 years of his career.

@Tunman

Ronaldo played at around 190lbs during the 2002 World Cup. That's on record. He was injured before the World Cup, so his weight was probably somewhat elevated. His listed weight with the Federation of Football Association was 82kg (181lbs) at the time, which was probably his ideal playing weight - light enough to endure the cardiovascular requirements of soccer but strong and powerful enough to be a force to be reckoned with.

If I recall correctly, Ronaldo had numerous injury problems throughout his career. I think that's directly linked to his weight management issues. I mean, when he joined the training camp for Brazil's national team in preparation for the 2006 World Cup, he weighed 209lbs. That's way too heavy for an elite 5'11½ soccer player.

I think it's speaks to the level of talent Ronaldo possessed that he was able to play overweight as he did. He is certainly one of my favorite players of all time.

@Joe Joe 0:33-0:36 tells it all its a 6'2 peak Jackman with a 5'11 1/2 Ronaldo. Don't fool by camera shaking or tilt up and down from left to right it can trick people a 2" difference person look the same height.
Tunman said on 2/Jul/19
@Animus
192Lbs could seem too much indeed but at that time it was mainly muscle and the dude was still training seriously.I think some may have a powerful built more easily than others,if you compare him to say Peter Crouch who's 8" taller and only 165Lbs.
I mean both are pro athletes who certainly constantly check their weight (at least in the successful part of their career)and wouldn't allow themselves to gain/lose too much weight
The same could be said about Serena Williams who's 5'9 and easily around 190Lbs when playing.On the opposite side you have Caroline Wozniacki who at the same height claims to be usually 140Lbs.

Can easily pass for 6'.
Joe Joe said on 30/Apr/19
here he is with Hugh Jackman near the end of his Career playing in Brazil. There doesn't seem a massive difference between them. Obviously we can't see footwear or the ground. Ronaldo is a funny one. He can sometimes look 180cm then look 184 cm.

Could he have grown after arriving at PSV? He was 18 years old
Pio said on 14/Jul/18
when he played with PSV his official height was 178, in Italy it became 183.
istambul said on 13/Jul/18
he says that has 6'1'' or 1.85
Animus said on 18/Jun/18
At the peak of his powers, during the 2002 World Cup, he weighed a staggering 192lb. It's impressive he had the stamina to play at that weight.

theres like 2-3 inches difference when ronaldo and cristiano stand next to each other

Phenomeno is taller than that. I'd go with 6 ft for him.
James said on 3/Dec/17
@alana If I'm not mistaken, Rob list celebrities at their lowest (evening), not their peak (morning). Maybe not the absolute lowest, but Rob gives an estimation near the lowest.

You are right that most people is measured in the morning by doctors. But you can also be measured in the evening at home!!
alana said on 27/Nov/17
Rob, a question for you please. Do you list their heights at night or in the middle of the day? because it will normally be to list their heights that they have the middle of the day. Height measurments are taken generally in the middle of the day and people are the most active too. Also that will give you a nice average height that you are living with over the day not just when you wake up or get to sleep.

Thank you
Editor Rob: the difference between 2pm and 10pm on average is small, like a couple of mm's, so giving a height at that time is reasonable. I'm thinking of height after being up 5-6 hours at least.

He looks somewhere between 5ft 11.25-75. You are probably right again .

Nadal is 184ish
anon176 said on 2/Nov/17
Nazario got billed 179 with 17 that's not a low measurement so he's definitly sub 5ft 11.
Hijopotamus said on 2/Nov/17
@177 cm (m|GER/NRW/CGN), dude, relax. Missing by 1ish cm when you are standing on not the flattest ground shouldn’t be a crime.

How much is he weighing these days?
Edimar1.84 said on 24/Sep/17
I met Ronaldo in 2015, at the time I had 5ft10 and he looked a little bigger than me, looked smaller than my father 6ft0.5
I guess he is 1.81

I'm sorry for that threatening comment, it's just that half of the visitors are trolls or biased, and it's irritating, won't happen again.
Appe 183.3cm said on 3/Aug/17
My fav player ever, I remember the "fenomeno" playing for Inter Milan when I was a kid 😍. He would say he is 182cm or just a little under before bed, he claimed his "just out of bed" height

lasla said on 2/May/17
Rob, do you think that ronaldo at night is near 181cm or 182cm?

he in some pictures looks 6'1 an in others 5'11
Editor Rob: I'm sticking with right between the 2, but I think you could make a case for a full 182 at times.
Wrs567 said on 1/May/17
Rob, why the extra 2cms? You really think he is taller than Beckham?

they look exactly the same, Ronaldo even has more footwear

Ronaldo Nazario looks 1.81-1.82 compared with 6' 1" Cristiano.

Nazarios eyes are under his nose - nose = 2" so he's 2.25" shorter.

Each time you send a pic angle is useless James

@Johnny no my friend, I support my estimations with pictures and medical data. hijopotamus met Ronaldo. He is 183 my friend
James said on 30/Apr/17
Perfect!! Thanks so much for the addition Rob. I have guessed him sometimes as 1.81 but maybe I was too radical. 1.82 seems to be spot on. I think Johnson and I will agree 1.82 is perfect for Ronnie. Come on Johnson I know we will agree on this one. Ronaldo is slightly under 1.83.

Ronaldo is an awesome guy regardless of height... easily one of the best football players ever.

OH ROB THANK YOU I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I WANNA GIVE YOU A BIG HUG AND I WANNA MARRY THANK YOU I LOVE YOU SOO MUCH!!!!!!!
Editor Rob: I think Ronaldo is a trickier guy, I've seen him look all from 5ft 11 to 6ft range at times!

I have to agree he is a big name and Rob took a long time to add him. He was definitely more deserving of a page than a guy like N'golo Kante. One of the best footballers ever!

Tall for a Brazilian. I remember seeing him in the 2006 World Cup; I was astonished to see such a fat guy being able to run so much.

More than 45% of the people in Brazil are of European descent so 5ft 11.5 is not that tall.

Finally, Rob! He's shorter than Zizou and taller than Becks. So 1.81-82m it is!

Andrea said on 29/Apr/17
Only 5'11.5, Rob?
I didn't look at him that much but I thought he was at least 6'...
I remember some photos with "6'2" Hugh Jackman, where he didn't look much different than him (certainly not as much as 2.5 inches shorter, not even close to that) but I guess it speaks more to Hugh's listing, again! 😊
Editor Rob: this guy can be tricky, hence why I had to have a longer look. I'm interested in what the user average guess for him would be.

Comparing with Jackman is always tricky as that guy can seem 6ft 1 at times ;)
Johnson said on 29/Apr/17
I would say he is 1.83
