Even when posing with Paul Sturgess, he's still claiming 6ft 6.
Paul's head size is like a foot long, 99.999999 percentile

@Dan
I saw that programme too. Ross Sambridge is the 6'10 guy who thought he was 7'5. An incredible miscalculation. It was sad really. He was being stopped in the street and he told people he was 7'5. Tall as he is, the people did seem surprised to hear him claim that height. I think he expected to grow a little more and become Britain's tallest man. He was crestfallen when the doctor measured him at 6'10. The poor doctor almost pretended that Sambridge may once have hit seven feet but his back was now slightly curved and may have caused the 'loss'. There is a pic of Sambridge with Peter Mayhew on Mayhew's page, in a post from Feb 2015.

I even read somewhere once 6' 7"! Never thought he looked as tall as the figures that had been quoted. Although a lot of people think they are taller than they really are. Remember watching a tv program about tall people and one guy thought he was about 7' 5" but when they measured him he was 'only' 6' 10"!

@Brandon, I think it's just a common standing in garage in sneakers, girlfriend sees measuring tape and sees how tall I am, it reads 6'5 7/8, pretty much on that 6'6 mark, so "I'm 6 ft 6". I dont think he's lying, I do think he got measured at it but in footwear. A lot of people don't get measured barefoot and just go with what they got measured in shoes. And Dan can often seem like that sort of height on TV of course. I honestly don't think Dan is the egotistical type to inflate his height, I think he really believes he's 6 ft 6.

I can't stand when already tall people inflate their height. Is your ego that massive? If you are 6'4.75" and you claim 6'5" i don't mind. But you claim 6'6"? Come on now. Rounding up is ok but thats it. For example if you are 6'0.25" just claim 6'0" dont lie and say 6'1" but if you are 6'0.5" or 6'0.75" then saying 6'1" is fine. Im 5'11.25" when people ask me my height i say 5'11" but most people my height would claim 6'0" or 6'1" its ridiculous. Sometimes i actually lie but i downgrade and say im 5'10" just to screw with peoples egos.

Saw a guy at Victoria station looked very much like him. If he's 6'4 then a strong. look-a-like.

It's no surprise that when I see two people who look like each other, often their heights are very similar as well. It proves that height is mostly genetic, this is why twins usually are the same height, they have nearly the same genetic makeup.

Saw him on Breakfast this morning, I was thinking, dang this guy is so short and a fraud, not even 6 ft 5, short arse ;-)

Martin Keown is more of an even 6'0 in my opinion. Lots of England team photo pics where he is considerably shorter than Tony Adams and DavidvSeaman.
NX said on 30/Aug/16
That photo does not do him any justice
Arch Stanton said on 30/Aug/16
In looking again about 4 inches on Martin Keown who I think is near enough a proper 6'1, so he's around 6 ft 5, at times doesn't stand his best so in some photos might look more 6'4-6'4.5. I think 195 is the best shout but as Rofro says, he definitely had me fooled on the 6'6, his lanky frame, small head etc really do give that sort of impression at times.

Looked taller than Juergen klopp in footie interview last season and klopp is listed as 6'4
rofro said on 30/Aug/16
Wow! I thought he was a legit 6ft 6 until I saw the picture of him with Andy Murray! Now I think he probably hits 6ft 4 exactly.

I'll admit, I claim 6ft6 as well, but only because of exaggerated perception of heights. Because a majority of people inflate their heights, they'll guess me as either 6ft6 or 6ft7 when they see me. And if I tell them I'm "6 foot 5", they won't believe me. But at least I'm a fraction over 6ft5, so it's not that bad to round up to the next inch. I know a 6ft3 guy who claims 6ft5, and he gets away with it. But if I tell him that my height is 6ft5, he'll be like "no way, if I'm 6ft5, you're like 6ft7!" I believe that no one should claim any more than an inch of their actual height. For example, if you're 5ft10.75, you shouldn't claim 6ft, but if you're 5ft11 or 5ft11.25, than claiming 6ft is okay, although it's not the most honest answer.

There's a chance of 6'4.5 I guess but this guy generally looks too darned lanky to be under 6'5!! OK, I think we can definitely rule out 6'6, I mean look at big Del Potro with Murray, Potro looks almost 2 inches taller!

Rob perhaps give him 6'4.75 (195cm) then and we'll assume he got measured at 6'6 in shoes?
jessman said on 29/Aug/16
I checked the heights of the four rowers Dan is photograped with. He looks shorter than all bar one. Their listed heights are 6'8, 6'6, 6'5, and 6'3. Sounds like Dan has a fascination with being 6'6, claims it, but is not 6'6.
jessman said on 29/Aug/16
There's a good pic of Dan beside 6'4 listed Jurgen Klopp. Dan is standing tall while Jurgen is looser and has his head slightly bowed. Dan edges it by about half inch. Can't see footwear but Dan is wearing a suit so presumably dress shoes, Jurgen has training gear so presumably trainers or football boots. Pic was taken indoors.
jessman said on 29/Aug/16
I see 6'4 at most. Numerous pics with ex-footballers who have listed heights. He does not tower over any of them like a true 6'6 would. Best pic for me is one with Mark Lawrenson (who's leaning!). Lawrenson is about 5'11 absolute max. Dan looked at most 5 inches taller.
Editor Rob: I found the photo of him and Andy Murray...he certainly could be 6ft 4 range there too!
Fog5'11 said on 29/Aug/16
I thing he looks close to this, though i would have put him more 6'4 range. In the interview with Jurgen Klopp, he looked a bit taller, and Klopp is supposed to be 6'4. I would have gone with 6'4.5
miko said on 29/Aug/16
Maybe he's 6'4.5 and 6'6 in shoes?

He's very lanky so can look taller than he actually is.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Aug/16
Excellent find Rob! Yeah that's an odd one, he looks Skarsgard sort of height there! Those rowers I think are near listed height though,. the bald guy Mo on the left does look 6'8. I saw them being interviewed when arriving home and compared to normal sized people they're huge guys. Well Dan did have near 4 inches on Thierry Henry, but perhaps Henry is more 6'1 range than 6'2? 6'5 is probably fair overall then, but I know I guessed Dan at 6'6 on TV before I even knew what he claimed!
Arch Stanton said on 28/Aug/16
Perhaps Thierry Henry is 6'1.5 rather than 6'2 then, and Dan 6'5, near 4 inches diff.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Aug/16
Thanks Rob. Are you sure on 6'5 flat though? This guy looked 4 inches taller than Thierry Henry, and looked near 6'6 with a load of different people. Looking again with Martin Keown though he does look more 6'5. He's a light framed guy though so easy to think taller. I'd not have though of him as under 6'5.5 anyway, but in pictures I agree he tends to look more 6'5.
Editor Rob: I can't find the photo now, but I remember seeing him with Andy Murray, he really looked at most 6ft 5, possibly even under it!

He posted a photo on his twitter not long ago: Click Here. The rower on the right claims 6ft 6 as well...one of them might be 6ft 6, but I doubt it is Dan. He's struggling to look much over 6ft 4 there.
