As a Wolves fan I watched all the videos of him arriving at Molineux, pretty sure they measured him at 186cm at his medical

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover Spot on. He's Gary Cahill and he was listed as 6'4 online. Not sure if that's meticulously accurate though.

Rob, between this guy and Ronaldo who do you rate as taller?

Both guys have gotten 185.8cm measurements!
Editor Rob
Both arguably don't fall under 6ft 1

6'1 1/8

Wouldn't be surprised if he'd drop to 6'0.5-6'0.75 after a game. Listing is fair enough but shouldn't be a mm higher

Actually tbf to Costa I'm not so sure he stood that well there,his posture didn't change much during or after the measurement apart from tilting his head. I think it's possible he'd hit 186 or even a tad more if he stood bolt upright at 11am,so you could argue 6ft1 1/8th for Diego.

Definition of a legit 6’1. Nothing under
Rory said on 12/Oct/22
Wouldn't bother with the fraction over 6ft1 seeing as it was 11am, it's safe to call Costa a textbook 6ft1 guy though as a yardstick to compare with other players.

Rob what do you think,is he same height as Ronaldo or shorter?
Editor Rob
Ronaldo has a taller impression, although has a smaller head size than Costa.

Tiny upgrade Rob?
Editor Rob
About 185.8cm there from looking at it, at 11am.
Technically could be a candidate for 6ft 1 1/8th, but I will mention the figure at the top. Wasn't a full 186 like the guy called out.

Strange that he thought he'd gained some height, suggests maybe he hasn't been measured for a while!

Spot on again from Rob. In Diego Costa's latest video at Wolves, he was measured on a stadiometer and confirmed that his height is 186cm. Diego even said that he's grown lol. So 185/186cm are valid.

He looks around 5 inches taller than Hazard and visibly shorter than terry, around 1 inch Click Here Click Here= Click Here=. Also a bit shorter than Ronaldo Click Here Click Here. I think he might be 6`0.5

i thought 185.5-186 at first but after checking his pics with cristiano he doesnt look any taller . 185-185.5 before bed and 187-187.5 out of bed.

Hey Rob, why Azpilicueta looks like 5´11-6ft in that photo? He is listed as 5´10, but he seems taller, what is your call?
Editor Rob
overall I do think nearer 5ft 10 is more likely from what I have seen, though some occasions he can indeed seem over it.

I would love to see him with Cristiano Ronaldo! (autocorrect tried to change it to Ronaldinho!)! Rob’s kitchen would be the perfect location!

Could be similar in height to Ronaldo, but has slightly shorter proportions.

I don't buy 6'1" for Diego. He is at least 0.5" shorter than Ronaldo in all of their pictures. Example: Click Here

Hey rob how tall do you think raul jimenez striker from mexico is they say 6feet 1inch and half back then they said 6feet 3inchs
Editor Rob
Wouldn't have guessed as high as 6ft 3
khaled taban said on 17/Jun/18
6'1.25" on good day
heightchecker34 said on 16/Jun/18
Diego Costa looks 6'1, or at worst a 6'0.75 guy which is still 185 cm. He looks a fraction shorter than Cristiano Ronaldo. I don't follow soccer much Rob, is 6'1 considered tall for that sport? I am assuming because its international, the majority of players would fall under 6 ft.

Also, I have forgotten how to post/embed a link, it's been awhile. Could you tell me how again Rob? All the best mate.
Rory said on 16/Jun/18
I can understand why people might think he is taller as he has that combative style and is often playing up front with smaller guys (Hazard,Griezmann,Turan) but he always looked 6ft1 range to me, didn't think he was near 6ft2.
187.5 cm said on 16/Jun/18
184.5 - 185 cm/6ft 3/4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/18
Rob, maybe 186cm?
Editor Rob
The more I've seen of Costa, the less I've been convinced he really was over 6ft 1.
