Torres is 183 or 185?
Peyman said on 21/Dec/12
Torres is exactly 6ft
I bet
ralph said on 18/Dec/12
I think pique is 6 "3"
Nick said on 15/Dec/12
another one to prove the below statement same here together with 191cm Joey Didulica (who is even standing in the back) they look same height Click Here also I want to add considering the below picture with Vieira that Ibrahimovic weight is also inflated, they've same built and Vieira is always been around 82/83kg while Ibrahimovic was that weight but is listed at 95kg nowadays, what a joke.
Nick said on 14/Dec/12
Ibrahimovic might be 192cm tops, here is together with Vieira listed at 192/193cm Click Here and he looks slightly shorter..
van persie said on 5/Nov/12
I can say that i meet him in spain and he is the same height as me and im 186,3-184,2 "about 185"
van persie said on 5/Nov/12
I think he was 6 0´5 when he was 18 but in manchester and real madrid he grew up to 186 becouse of exercices or something . is 183 im spanish and i know he is 183 zlatan is 195
Rob Roy for Paul said on 16/Oct/12
I don't understand why Rob is so slow to post new pages for celebs. Zlatan and Torres have been asked for, for a long time now.

I' m very interested about Fernando Torres height.... In my opinion he looks 185cm barefoot.... Did someone of you meet this footballer? Say to me if I am wrong!
Aarron said on 28/Sep/12
achello, if Usian bolt really is 6'5, then Ronaldo has got to be 6'2 minimum.
Dan said on 16/Sep/12
Yeah I was thinking about 6'0.5-6'1 for Torres. Saw a photo of Maxi stood next to Lucas Leiva who's listed at 5'10, and he seems about 2-3 inches taller than Maxi, so between 5'7-5'8 seems right for the hell he got listed at 5'11 on the Liverpool website is beyond me.
achello said on 16/Sep/12
well, torres looks taller than most 183 cm listed players, and not that shorter than lets say 188 cm listed players. I think he is 185 cm maybe 1-2 mm below.
maxi never seemes tall, in fact he seemed like relatively I think he is around 5'8-9 max.
so: 10-12 cm difference, which means 3-4 inches.
Dan said on 12/Sep/12
I know this isn't anything to do with Ronaldo's height, but since there isn't a page for Torres or Rodriguez, I thought I'd stick this here.

Click Here

From what I've seen, Torres is always listed at 183cm (6ft), and Maxi Rodriguez at 180cm (5ft11). Looking at this picture there is no way on Earth there is only a 1 inch difference in their heights. In fact, Torres doesn't even look to be standing straight! Now either Torres is more like 6'2-6'3 or Rodriguez is more 5'8-5'9. What do you all think?
achello said on 7/Sep/12

this guy is growing and growing, no he's almost as tall as Bolt.
He's going to be the tallest man on earth one day
Justin 181 cm said on 27/Aug/12
he's always looks an inch smaller than 6'2 footballers a solid 6'1
chris said on 19/Aug/12
torres was listed 186 cm on euro 2012 page.on chelsea site 183,david luiz was 185 then jumped to 189.
Charlie said on 14/Aug/12
Rob, on UEFA EURO 2012 he was listed 184
for example, Cesc Fabregas is on Barcelona official site listed at 179 but on official uefa euro page he was listed at 175
that means that they measured players barefoot, so you can add many football players height on your site because it is probably correct, what do you think?
Jack said on 12/Aug/12
186.5 cm is right I think...
achello said on 10/Aug/12
whoever he stands next to, he looks pretty much the same height or taller. so I think he works on this thing when taking photos
Fern194cm-192cm said on 9/Aug/12

- Check this photo out with 6,2 Rivera from the Yankees. He looks to be an easy 186 cm
achello said on 9/Aug/12
i think its so funny he really likes to stand tall and big. watch real madrid team photos, on one picture he looks like a giant compared to his teammates and an other one he looks like a dwarf compared to pepe...I have two pictures like that, I laughed my butt off

I think the teams list their players taller because it makes them appear stronger on the papers.
Original said on 8/Jun/12
Looks 6'1.5" or 187cm
MAT&T said on 5/Jun/12
Karim benzema I forgot to mention is perhaps the most debatable in terms of heights...most websites have him listed at 6ft but this not true..I have seen him in person and I believe he is 5'11 no more.. He does have broad sholders and a almost muscely phisique which can perhaps give off the impression of a 6 footer
Mike said on 5/Jun/12
Phil jones certainly is an interesting one...seen several pics of him next to six foot danny welbeck also of man utd and he definitely has a good inch on him, so no doubt he is a six footer.. I would say a 186cm height

Anyone know the true height of these footballers who have highly been debated
Arjen Robben
Aaron Ramsey
Steven gerard
Godred said on 10/Feb/12
@Haziel - P.Jones`s height is questionable, he is not 189,he was always listed as 5`11 before going to Man utd,then he was billed at 6`1 -which I doubt.
Nick said on 9/Feb/12
btw Ibraimovic Click Here never looks two inches taller than (in all the pic found on the www) 187cm listed Alessandro Nesta, and is barely 1cm taller than Abbiati (bald head;) Milan ac goalkeeper who is listed at 191cm. Hence he can be 192cm no more.
max said on 7/Feb/12
i believe that they should deduct 2cms for hair. If any of you have ever used a laser scanner at your local chemist, mall etc u'll realise your measurement is off depending on hair. Ronaldo is 184cms and thats early afternoon height
Haziel Semaya said on 31/Jan/12
I ever see De Gea taller than Phil Jones (189 cm) when they stand together..
Attila_194cm. said on 23/Jan/12
Henkka i'm agree with you about Benzema.In euro 2008 he listed 182 in france national,after in the Olympique Lyonnais website started listed 184.Today is always given 184cm in Real Mabrid official website,but somewhere listed a joke as 187 or 186,absolutely false,maybe widespread by some fans club website.However the most credible measure could be that of his current club, Real Madrid,that is 184,but i would not be so sure saw what happened with Cristiano Ronaldo listed a false 186.5cm by Real website,up to 1.5cm as out of bed.Then Benzama could be less than 184,maybe 183/182 in agreement with your views Henkka.Don't forget that many players are listed up to 0.75 inch(2cm)by soccer shoes.
John said on 22/Jan/12
How can the laser scan be correct when it measures him with hair at 185,8cm and then without hair at 185,1cm. That means his hair was just 0,7cm? Anybody can see that his hair is 2-3cm. What do you think?
Henkka said on 22/Jan/12
@Attila: I don't know for sure most of those heights, but there are a few I know for certain. Abidal is indeed the 186cm he's listed at, as well as Puyol, who may not be a full 178cm but surely not under 177.

Also, one player I certainly feel curious about is Karim Benzema. He's often been listed at 184cm, but right now I've realized he's listed almost everywhere at 187cm. It's pretty funny, when he's in fact 181-182cm (noticeably shorter than both 185 and 184 Ronaldo and Higuain respectively).

Dilemmma, if you scroll down the link I posted previously you will see De Gea standing in Uniteds team photograph. It is clear that he is nowhere near the 6' 4" sometimes stated. Some of the commentators even mentioned early on in the season that he was nowhere near his listed height. Check him out with 5'10" at best Alex Ferguson (almost 70 so may not even be 5'10")

de gea is about 186 cm or 187 cm no more
Ian said on 25/Oct/11
The link with David de Gea beside 6' 2" (at most) Michael carrick is on this page. I think 6'4" is a crazy listing and purely to make other teams think that he is a large imposing keeper like Van der sar who he is replacing. Also I would be amazed if Rooney was much over 5'8.5" Click Here
Ian said on 25/Oct/11
Honestly I think the estimates and listings for De Gea ar so far off it is unbelievable. Listed as 6' 4" in several places. Look at the team photo with him beside Carrick who is 6' 2" at the most.

Barefoot pics of him with Irina Sheikh, looks nearer 6' than 6'2". I'd have estimated him at 184cm but to be fair he does look this height next to a lot of people. He doesn't quite look my height though.

Don't know what I was looking at but he seems to have a good 4 inches on Sheikh who is likely 5'8.5-5'9".

BlueBoy said on 26/Sep/11
Recently Cristiano Ronaldo was subject of a biomechanical analisys on a tv program, you know seeking for the grounds of his superior skills and that bull.
He had to face some challenges, one of them being to measure his vertical jump hability. Measurements were taken at his highest mark and them substracted to 185cm, his alleged height. That fact was cited several times during the show, but in different contexts. BTW it was sponsored by Castrol, anyone appart from me watched that show too?
James said on 25/Sep/11
he can look taller than just 6'1 flat with alex ferguson.
Jed said on 21/Sep/11
Rob, might be worth pointing out. The scan has his upper arm girth as 12.5". I'm pretty sure that's not accurate. That is below average for a bicep measurement yet he's pretty well built - Click Here

There's not really much chance/any of that being right even if it was relaxed.
dejjed said on 21/Sep/11
finally this guy is downgraded. i knew for sure he was not 187cm.

i think 185 is prolly spot on.

he can look taller tho, duo great posture and athletic body.

How tall is Torres? I think he is 6ft0.5/184cm not sure though.
sam said on 17/Sep/11
-.- 185,8 was the 3d Laser Scan included his hair. 185,1 is his height when they minus´s his hair. i think the analysts are not silly, so they kept that in mind!
Chris said on 17/Sep/11
he is a strong 6,1 end of it :).
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 15/Sep/11
Click Here

If you check at 13.03 it shows his jump and minus's his height. its given as 185cm. He must be under 185.5cm because otherwise they would round up to 186cm probably. This clip might of been afternoon for all we know as well?
Suprising because he always looks tall ud think he was at least 185.5cm solid 6'1 night. For me 184.5-185cm weak 6'1 barefoot night.

actually...yeh...there was the 185.8 cm pic that was in the data part...maybe 185.8 cm is correct...if this was the test, it was probs done in late his listing of 186 cm is indeed very correct.
Star Trek Guy said on 13/Sep/11
Just wanted to mention that when the computer screen measured him at 185.1 cm it clearly included his hair too. Look closely next time. I think he is 183/184.
[Editor Rob: it's possible the scan took account of it, but it still doesn't explain why the screengrab I showed of the computer had his height as 185.8cm and in the visual they wrote 185.1cm...]

Clearer said on 13/Sep/11
He is indeed 185cm in mid of the day. 186 to 187cm max first out of bed let say. He seems to be much taller and bigger than most men in his pics. Then this given the fact that most men tends to exaggerate on their height ie: 175 but say 180 or 179 but say 6 feet even, which can be explained by men ego.I'm 175cm and I always say I'm that height when be asked. So for one that appeals bit shorter than me but say taller than 175 cm, he wouldm feel embarrassed against me. There's no need to make up on heights like that, once found out u will look like a fool. Just live and tell the truth, that's the correct and "best" way to live a normal good life.

Mohammed said on 11/Sep/11
he's 185-186
John said on 10/Sep/11
The height measured in Castrol Edge Ronaldo Tested to the limit was measured with a laser. So the laser must have measured the first solid substance that could be found. Which must have been the top of his hair instead of the top of his head (if he was bald). His hair is about a inch so, maybe he's 6 ft tall?
Luke25 said on 9/Sep/11

@cvsgsfgds: Nope, Abidal is indeed 186 cm. I know because I've met him, and he was a bit taller than me (184 cm), yet he didn't look as tall as one of my cousins (188 cm) who was with me at the moment. Like I said, Ronaldo looks around 185 cm to me. He definitely has a great posture which makes him look taller sometimes.
miko said on 24/Aug/11
184/5cm for me. Impeccable posture and a slim frame can give him a taller impression.

For him to be 6'1.5, would put him at close to 6'3 (6.2.75) out of bed which sounds ridiculous.

@James mememes

Why people always downgrade other people? Is it out of jealousy or something?

If it is possible that Ronaldo is smaller then 186, then it is also possible that abidal is just taller then 186.
james mememes said on 15/Aug/11
if you compare cristiano ronaldo with abidal (1.86 cm) .abidal looks more taller than cristiano ronaldo so cristiano ronaldo is 184cm or how maxim 185 cm no more
jeip said on 15/Aug/11
in a picture that cristiano appearing with beckham and iker. maybe ronaldo was up something and used templates so he looks more taller than beckham and casillas

i think that cristiano is 184 , beckham 182 cm and 182 or 181 cm for casillas
Shaun said on 13/Aug/11
Ronaldo definitely looks the sort who would invest in custom footwear... But to be fair he really does look this height a lot and can believe his club measured him at 186.5 cm.

I believe that Peter uses templates in their shoes and seems to be taller

I still believe he is 184 cm without shoes

He's always looked around 6'1" to me. Sometimes he can look taller, he's got a good posture and his hair helps. But definitely he's not over 6'1".

no more than 185. he actually looks like 183cm but normally he looks tallish so i give him denefit of doubt.

hes 186 first thing in the morning (like he claims), than after a few hours around 185. so why has only this site 187cm ? rob ?

perhaps kaka is 188 cm because he is more taller than zidane on some pictures.ronaldo can be 187cm and torres 183,beckham 181 and casillas 180

If that`s Cain`s real height,could you see Ronalso`s feet? - I still think 185 max.

you're right Casillas looks smaller in this picture. What do you think is the actual height of Casillas and Beckham?

But to get back to Ronaldo, he's definitely at least 186. That's by the way the height he claims on his official youtube page

coolio said on 19/Jul/11
i dont think ronaldo is 1,86 m! look at pictures of ronaldo with kaka. at most of them kaka looks much taller and he is just 1,85 m.
at manchester his height was always 1,84 m.
and í¶zil is not 1,83m tall! at weder bremen he was only 1,80m tall. i think real madrid adds some cm to the true
YMCR said on 19/Jul/11
He is not 1.87 or 186.5. Nesta is 187 cm and he is shorter dan Nesta.
Godred said on 19/Jul/11
doesn`t explain Real`s 185 listing.I still buy 185.
MD said on 19/Jul/11

I was looking at more pictures of him with Casillas, and there is no way Casillas is actually 182 cm. He simply can't be if Cristiano is what he is listed.
Shaun said on 16/Jul/11
Makes Lampard look 5'11 tops.
Shaun said on 16/Jul/11
I think his 186.5 is 100% legit. He looks easily 6'2" next to Usain Bolt and looks this height next to Jackman. He used to look 6'0.5" though.
Dan said on 14/Jul/11
I think this picture clears a lot:

Yes but football listed heights do sometimes seem to be exagerated or done with their shoes on, 183 for Torres could be the legit measurement.

torrs is surely 6.1.they had the medical late at night on the trasnfer window.david luiz also was listed 6,2 and 6,1 now.

Hey Rob any chance you could give what you think for - Torres,Bale,Giggs and Messi? - would help for comparison.
Terryman said on 7/Jun/11
Rob would n't you like to grow like Zlatan ibrahimovic, lol the guy adds a cm every year even though he is in his late 20's,he started out being reported at 1,91m then just kept adding them cm's and is now usualy listed at 196cm in a few years he might be 1,98m lol
Godred said on 7/Jun/11
So what do you think for Torres?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/11
I think 6ft1.25 might be nearer. Looks 185-186cm
Godred said on 3/Jun/11
So do we think a realistic barefoot height of 185 for Ronaldo and 183 for Torres? - They still look very similar to me.
mee said on 1/Jun/11

Maybe he is not quite 187 cm but for sure he is minimum 185 cm.
Godred said on 31/May/11
Still don`t think he quite gets to the 187 mark. He has been listed recently as either 185 or 186.

Here is an interesting picture.
Ronaldo looks taller than Terry who's 6'2, roughly same height as leaning Lampard, and all dwarfed by 6'5 Petr Cech.

Mohammed said on 24/May/11

Bill said on 22/May/11
Ronaldo is a weak 6"0 six footer, that's a fact.
My son had his picture taken with him a couple of years ago when he played for manchester united, you can see in the picture that both were wearing sneakers, my son is 6"1 (185 cm) barefoot and you can see in the picture that he is clearly an inch taller than christiano, maybe an inch and a half.
Donny said on 20/May/11
on his profile he's listed as 186.5 which imo is still 2 cm too much but either way he is NOT 187 cm.

def correction needed.

Dean said on 10/May/11
No way 187 hes a tall guy but now one of those towering guys...possibly as low as 184? but more likely in the 185 range..maybe near 186cm at best!
Jed said on 10/May/11
He towers over his girlfriend who's supposedly 5'10. I'd say 6'1 at least, and irina Shayk (his gf) is probably 5'8/5'9.

Torres I've now met, he's shorter than I thought. I'm a United fan, but my friend's dad's company has some big connections to Chelsea and I met him, John Terry, Lampard and Peter Cech. Saw some of the other players about but didn't really judge their heights. Torres, by the way, is an incredibly nice guy, comes across really well, and seems quite quiet/modest, so I felt bad about the abuse he's getting.

Anyway. I was wearing Converse, most the players were wearing running shoes (post match tracksuits). I'm 6'1 and change barefoot, so a little under 6'2 in converse all stars - they give a little over half an inch I guess. Running shoes tend to be a little over an inch. So was losing half an inch to each of them in shoes.

Peter Cech is a big guy and had 3-4 inches on me. I'd say he's nearing 6'5. Didn't look anything over that.

Lampard I'd say is 6' even, he was shorter than me despite shoes.

Terry was weird. Thought he'd be taller. I'd say he's about 186cm barefoot (same height as me). I was pretty much eye to eye with him.

Torres is interesting. His posture isn't fantastic and I was comfortably taller than him (my posture could improve according to my physio, but is better than most people's), I'd say by 2.5". But, I'd say if he was standing up straight he'd definitely be very near 6'. I'd say he's somewhere between 182 and 184. Difficult to tell.

Hard to tell with Footballers as they are generally overbilled. Ronaldo looks the same height as Torres, and Torres is listed either 6'0 or 6'1. Ronaldo looked around the same height if not shorter than Lampard on a pic I previously poster. He's much shorter then Ferdinand who looks closer to 6'3 imo.

A friend of mine (5"11=180cm barefoot) got an autograph from him just few months ago at madrid, he said to me that ronaldo is 6"0 max = 182.5 cm, my friend said that ronaldo was at the most an inch taller than him.
It seems that these celebrities just tend to exaggerate when it comes to their height.

Xavi 5'4". Messi 5'4.5". Iniesta 5'5.5". Villa 5'6.5". The three Spaniards can be seen on many occasions standing shoulder to shoulder with their fellow national team mates. Unless Xabi Alonso and Iker Casillas are in the 6'2" - 6'3" range, then the others are as stated. Messi can be compared with them to get his height (lowth). Ronaldo looks a good 6'1" these days.

He came to manchester united when he was 18 it took him a season to settle to english football. In his second season when he was 19 he showed what a great player he was gonna become, basically theres a clip on YOUTUBE where GARY NEVEILLE(5'10) gives the man of the match award to ronaldo and they look the same height maybe an inch taller which would make him a 5'11 at the AGE OF 19/20!!!!!

Yes.. 6'1.5 is ridicolous. 6'1 MAX, more 6'0.5

I agree unless he has recently grown another inch since living United.

Van Der Saar is supposed to be 6'5.5" but always looks at least 6'6". He can look 199cm because of his build.

SAK said on 14/Feb/11
Thanks for the pic, and lines you made,

But I would disagree with you, about the fact that Ronaldo is 14cm shorter then Van Der Sar. Because if you look @ the photos when Rob is standing with celebs, when Rob comes upto someones nose like Rinaldo does to Van Der Sar, they are 12cm taller then Rob.

So, I would say Rinaldo is 12cm short then Van Der Sar(197cm), which wud make him 185cm/6ft1.

But I still think he is more solid 6ft1 @186cm.

Ok guys, me and Cristiano Ronaldo are really close physically.
I'm Portuguese.
Size 9 shoes.
and my lowest is 184 and my max would be 186,5. Now, 184 generally happens on a bad day at night. If you get a decent picture with his girlfriend Irina, I can tell you from Cristiano Ronaldo eyebrown to his top is about 8-9cms. And Irina is at best 5'9. I have digged afew old stuffs and she claimed 5'9. Probably claiming 5'10 now that she's with CR.
Btw people, stop comparing Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo, they are close in height all they need to difer is footwear or a low slouch, which happens in most pictures.
For those no believers, Cristiano Ronaldo could have grown at his adult time because remember he has to be the best and had money to buy hormones so it's not really impossible.

Yeah, 186.5 cm should be exact. In football it is not as important to be tall as for example in the heavyweight division of boxing. Like boxer David Haye who's record indicates 6'3. Still, standing next to 6'2 english soccer players (Trotter, Morison) he looks their height: Click Here Click Here

And if you look at this picture,

Iker, the one standing on the right is listed as 182CM/5'11.5. Pique, next to Iker is 192CM/6'3.5. Lucio next to Pique is 6'2. He's way more in their range than in Iker's. So 6'1.5 is probably accurate I guess. Damn.. I used to be so sure he was 184/185..

If Real Madrid site gives him 186,5 cm it's true because this height comes from physical examination, as in all football teams.
The heights of football players are the most reliable.

Can you explain to us why you have him at 187 cm, again, when the Real Madrid site gives him 186.5 cm, which is itself not even the most common height listing for him (he's usually listed lower).

[Editor Rob: I don't store the cm value just the feet inches, I display the nearest rounded cm beside the feet/inches. 186.5cm is 6ft 1.42 so 1.5 isn't that far away.]

No way. The media did an average height for each team in the in the 2010 World Cup, and 182 cm was actually the average height for French, English, Algerian, and Korean teams, all of which ranked right in the middle. It was actually a higher average than the American and Dutch teams (181 cm). The highest team average height was the Serbians, and that was only 186 cm. So, no, 182cm isn't short in football.

Now, in most American sports, 182 cm would be a bit on the low end of just about any of our major sports.
