Xavi 5'4". Messi 5'4.5". Iniesta 5'5.5". Villa 5'6.5".
Man, im from Spain and those heights are RIDICULOUS and wrong. I met Villa in Ibiza and he is 5,8.5 (im 5.11). Iniesta is 5.7 and Xavi is 5.6.5.

Rob, downgrade? Ronaldo is no more than 6'1. I can't believe he's more than 185cm barefoot.
timi said on 16/Apr/11
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.
said on 13/Apr/11
Ha Stan Collymore thought he was 6`4.
-Rob- how tall do you think fernando torres is? - was listed at 185 now 183 he looks exactly the same size and fram as cristiano for me.
[Editor Rob: I think torres looks shorter than ronaldo]

Raul is listed 5´10 on the schalke site.
not 5 11
Jake T. said on 3/Apr/11
Considering that Raul is 5'11 and Messi is 5'6.5 Cristiano is 6'1.25 or 186 cm.

185 for Ronny
arkansast said on 28/Mar/11
believe me folks i met cristiano ronaldo face to face iam 6.2 and ronaldo is just about 6.1,btw his accent is kinda funny
ANDREA[ITA] said on 26/Mar/11
come on he needs a downgrade... he's nowhere near 187 cm! look at all the photos we posted, rob! maybe he's that in the morning with boots but he's no more than 185!
greg said on 13/Mar/11
peter i'm 184 in the morning, 183 in the afternoon and 182.5 in the evening.
said on 10/Mar/11
Cristiano ronaldo is 1,85 cm tall or 6.0 feet. You can read it here on the technical card of real madrid football club where he plays. Click Here
DrJJ said on 10/Mar/11
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.
MD said on 6/Mar/11
Uh-oh! Good find, David. Regardless of the poor angle, a few things are definitely made more clear by that picture...
said on 6/Mar/11
With 6'0.5 Frank Lampard
portuguese said on 4/Mar/11
hey? what a big lie ,im portuguese and i already saw him so many times in madeira island ..he is not that tall is around 180/184 no more than this i bet
Peter Pansen said on 28/Feb/11
greg,thanks for your answer but when do you reach the 6ft? And is the 6 ft morning or evening height? I wish I could be about 6' 1'' at morning and 6' at evening. But at the moment I'm 5' 11'' in the morning and 5' 10.5'' at evening. I just became 19 years old and I really want to grow at least to 6 ft.
greg said on 27/Feb/11
peter pansen i was 5ft 10.5 at 19 and grew to 6ft
true said on 25/Feb/11
what a discution ? 3cm its not big difference ! also whats matter or he is 86 or 87..just more than 185 and less than 190 best answer !
bommelbommel said on 24/Feb/11
In the picture Rose put up of the FIFA gala, you can see Marco van Basten and Ronaldo are almost the same height and van Basten is 6'2"
Hulk said on 23/Feb/11
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!!!!!
who is that guy? said on 22/Feb/11
he's taller than indonesian actor who 188cm.
Peter Pansen said on 20/Feb/11
Can a 19 year old guy ( 5' 11'' tall) grow to 6' or to 6'1''???
Anonymous said on 19/Feb/11
He is 184 cm or 185 cm. I think,this is the perfect height for a man. I'm unfortunately only 180 cm. And I'm 19. Can I grow at the age of 19 3-5 cm?? I would love it to be 183 or 185 cm.
hey i know that guy said on 18/Feb/11
he's taller than most footballers -- 6 ft 1 is about right.
Andrea [ITA] said on 16/Feb/11
The differen e with Rio Ferdinando looks mote than 8 cms... He reaches his eyebrows and that is solid 10-11 cms... In that picture he looks no more than 180!
hulk said on 16/Feb/11
MAXI RODRIGUEZ height at atletico madrid was 5'11 which is a joke
hulk said on 16/Feb/11
i think FERNANDO TORRES real height is 6'0.5------------he looked 0.5 ich shorter than RONALDO(6'1)
Torres doesnt look taller than 6ft GERRARD
AT athletico madrid Torres height was 6'1 which Liverpool fc Website stated too.
EXAMPLE- MAXI RODRIGUEZ height at atletico madrid was 5'11 which is a joke
Shaun said on 15/Feb/11
Well he does look 187cm next to Scheider.
Torres83 says on 12/Oct/10
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.
Shaun said on 15/Feb/11
Van Der Sar looks 5 inches taller. I thought Ronaldo was 184-185? 187cm is crazy unless he grew at 24-25?
SAK said on 15/Feb/11
I will accept 185cm for Ronaldo but no less, definately not 183cm.
said on 14/Feb/11
no way hes only 12 cms shorter. you are joking?
here is 16 cms! well to be honest the difference between ronaldo and van der sar is bigger... i give ronaldo 1.83 max 1.84 no more!
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.
MD said on 14/Feb/11
He is SO ridiculous and SO self-concious with that tippy-toe thing. He should be embarrassed, but he's far too prideful.
said on 13/Feb/11
Rio Ferdidand is listed as 1'89 sometimes and others as 1'91 but he is more 1'92-1'93
See it here, Terry is 1'87 and James is 1'96 so Lampard is 1'87 too ( he is listed as 1'84) Click Here
Lmeister said on 13/Feb/11
C-Ron tippy toes in every team pic.
said on 12/Feb/11
Andrea, ibrahimovic says he is 1'96cm ; Aveiro , Fernando Torres is 1'85 ( his figure in Madrid wax museum is 1'87 but not barefoot) .
Casillas is 1'82-1'82 and in this photo Cristiano is 1'86:
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/11
There's no way they'd exaggerate a players height with something ridiculous yet exact as 186.5cm...
This is bang on
Aveiro said on 12/Feb/11
Guys, today I noticed Torres was transfered to Chelsea so I thought I would take a lookk and guess what, he was listed as 6 foot! So, unless they downgrade players...Madrid exagerated players height and it confirms that Cristiano Ronaldo is not 186,5 as they claim?
john said on 10/Feb/11
javier mascherano IS 1.74--------5FT 8
At west ham he looks 2 inches taller than tevez
SO TEVEZ IS 1.68--------5FT 6
Jak said on 5/Feb/11
@johann tevez isn't 173, he's 168 max. He's just bulky.
Bon_ said on 5/Feb/11
Ronaldo Nazario was listed at 1,79 until 21-22 and later at 1,83 because he did actually grow, it was clear that he grew in his 20-s like some guys do. But i don't think it's the case with this Ronaldo.
Andrea [ITA] said on 4/Feb/11
How can you go on saying he's 1.87 or more???????? He looks too shorter (at least 10 cms) next 1.93-1.95 ibrahimovic. See the pictures. The max ill give to him is 186 in the morning and 184 before bed! No more... 185 is his height!
said on 3/Feb/11
187cm is probably right. Just look at him slouching next to 173cm Carlos Tevez:
ANDREA[ITA] said on 3/Feb/11
yeah. he's probably 186 in the morning and 184 in the night! no more!
eeee said on 1/Feb/11
he doesnt look so tall..maybe 1.80, no more
Aveiro said on 30/Jan/11
If Nereida is 167cm then he can't be 187.
Bon_ said on 30/Jan/11
not so long ago he was listed at 1,84, and If if they measured him in the morning like most players then he is likely as low as 183 cm(6'flat).
Doesn't really looke more than it so 184 cm(6'0.25) max. in my opinion.
hulk said on 23/Jan/11
I agree RONALDO DOES STAND ON HIS TOES in most of his pics IF YOU LOOK-----------------------
1.85-----BARE FOOT-----------is ACCURATE BELIEVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
and a inch added for shoes 1.87
one said on 23/Jan/11
1.85 is acurate he likes running on his toes and in some pics is standing on his toes
Aveiro said on 23/Jan/11
Ok guys, me and Cristiano Ronaldo are really close physically.
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.
sos said on 22/Jan/11
i belive he is 1.84 no more
James said on 21/Jan/11
i think his true height is 6'1 (185cm) or maybe 186cm at a push.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 19/Jan/11
187 is impossible. look at the picture with ibrahimovic that isnt taller thano 195! he looks at least, to be good, 10-12 cms shorter!
ANDREA [ITA] said on 16/Jan/11
this picture explains it all:
ibrahimovic is no more than 195 and he litterally towers over ronaldo...
he's like 184-185! no more!
said on 14/Jan/11

We can't see their footwear but Cristiano looks about 1 or 2cm taller.

lol here prove he is 185 cm.
170 cm sneijder, comes up to his nose. thats about 15 cm.
till the eyes is 11 cm according to this site, add another 3-4 tot he middle of his nose.
John said on 12/Jan/11
Alright,but how do you explain that the Spanish version of Real Madrid site gives him at 185 cm?
said on 11/Jan/11
Rose, what about their shoes difference?In the Spanish version of the Real Madrid's site it says - altura:185cm.So,Rob,which is right?
[Editor Rob: I don't think they measure people in sneakers]
said on 11/Jan/11
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
said on 10/Jan/11
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..
said on 10/Jan/11
Here's a picture of Cristiano standing next to Wesley Sneijder who's 5'7 Click Here
I'm starting to thing that 187 might be right
look at this
he's looks like a giant, lol
MrX said on 9/Jan/11
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.
said on 9/Jan/11
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.]
Rose said on 8/Jan/11
He's exactly 185CM, 186CM on good days maybe and 187CM with shoes on. Fer sure.
said on 8/Jan/11
He was likely measured as 6'1 with shoes on, like most athletes. looks like a solid 6 feet tall here, no more, no less, in this pic with 6'1 ocho cinco Click Here

187? no way, 185 max.
Moke said on 21/Dec/10
Ronaldo is listed 186cm which is probably his max height, because sportsmen just like actors are rather made taller than shorter.
Dural said on 19/Dec/10
In the Spanish version of Real Madrid's website Christiano Ronaldo is listed as 185cm and in the English version it's 186.5cm. Other players are also listed at totally different height whether you click on the "english" or "espanol" button.
said on 19/Dec/10
Ronaldo is 185.5 cm
Kaka is 186.5 cm
as u can see by this pic:

Oh, here's the link:
MD said on 19/Dec/10
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.
Blues said on 18/Dec/10
Check again Real Madrid website Rob, they hav C Ronaldo at a bare 6'1".
I do not get where do get those odd figures, addding or substracting half an inch on many people. Guess that you seek show your accuracy, but yours is no better than an opinion.

Is 182cm/5ft11.5 considered short for a footballer.
Not unless you play for Stoke City in the UK.
Carlo said on 17/Dec/10
6 ft 2? are you sure? cool you met him. I always thought he was like 1.85 cm

every time i see real madrid play he looks to be the tallest guy in their squad. so i guess 1.87 is pretty right
Tigerlou said on 16/Dec/10
I met him recently and hes defo 6ft 2 as hes just taller than me and im 6ft 1!!
Carlo said on 14/Dec/10
casillas is like 182 com, segio ramos 183 com but I'm still unsure about ronaldo. I think he's 185cm
van cook said on 10/Dec/10
sergio ramos 185cm
Anonymous said on 9/Dec/10
Why is he 6 ft 1.5 tall?????
Bon said on 7/Dec/10
My theory is, that his earlier 184 listing was correct, and that it was measured somewhere in mid-morning. So he's a solid 6'0.25 tops.
Bon said on 6/Dec/10
and 6 foot is not tall? he looks just like that - just about in the tall zone.
frank said on 5/Dec/10
he's taller than maria sharapova and nadal....
Bon said on 2/Dec/10
He looks no more than a solid 6-footer. 184 on a good day.

6'1.25 to 6'1.5 now. 6'1 easy.

Next to 5'11 Adrian Grenier: Click Here
Standing straight he's probably 6'2, but 6'1.5 might be true as well.
Bon said on 19/Nov/10
He's nowhere near 187, except in the morning he might be close.
184 suits him best.
Zez said on 16/Nov/10
been near him, and can absolutely confirm hes 185cm, no more no less. i asked him.
(i'm portuguese btw). cheers.

on real`s website hes 185 and 186,5 as well..just choose spanish version to see 185 and english version for 186,5....little strange
James said on 8/Nov/10
187cm is a stretch
Torres83 said on 4/Nov/10
Well I don't think Ronaldo is only 6ft, but 6ft1 is really max. For me he's 184-185.5 means 6ft0.5-6ft1
said on 31/Oct/10Click Here
the guy next to ronaldo is called: Danny(number 10)
and is 5ft10
the other guy is called Deco and is 5 ft 8 1⁄2 (number 20)
Bruno Alves(number 2) is 1.89m and much taller
Carvalho(number 6) is also taller
6 ft max for ronaldo rob
lets me serios rob,6ft 1.5 is ridiculous
dont you think so? 6 ft for ronaldo

even 1.84m is 1 inch taller
6ft max voor ronaldo
Dural said on 30/Oct/10
Last week he was listed 185cm on Madrid's website. Take Özil for example, he was listed as 180cm at Werder Bremen, then 183cm at Real Madrid and now he's listed as 181cm.
CWH said on 28/Oct/10
Cristiano Ronaldo is not lifting his foot in that picture - I think you're looking at Caneiro (3) in that picture. Pepe(15), though is clearly standing on his tip toes.
