Rob.
From what you've seen ,Who is taller Gareth Bale or Rafael Nadal ??
Editor Rob
Sometimes Bale seems taller, but against many players I can see 6ft or 6ft 0.25...sometimes Nadal at times has seemed he could pull off nearer 6ft 1/2

182cm range is too low for this guy. Always appears closer to 184cm

He's a solid 6'0.

Likely the kind of guy that is 6'0.5 range through most of the day and drops down to a low of a fraction over 6'0 at his lowest.

His bonce is slightly small for his body so he's a solid 6 footer, without a slightly small head he would probably be 6'2

Rtyuqrt said on 25/Mar/18
He looks it at many times or even taller. He has perfect tall man proportions, but I don't believe somehow he's the full 6' . He's clearly 3 cm shorter than ronaldo. I could see him at 5'11 3/4 ie 1.82 m. Maybe 183 - 183.5 is his morning height.
Animus said on 20/Mar/18
He weighs 82kg? I suppose it's possible with his thick legs. Overall he looks lighter than Cristiano.

Agree with 5'11.75" for Ramos, 6'0.25" for Bale and Benzema and 6'1" for Cristiano.

@Ronald9 "in some photos with ramos they look almost the same height" In fact, Bale looks clearly shorter than Ramos in some pics, so I'm not convinced he is 1.84.

Click Here

Rob, do you think that there is a floor advantage for Benzema and Ramos in this pic?
Editor Rob
Always a chance of a slight tilt (looking at background it would be a little tilt in Marcelo's favour), but the ground is unknown. Seems flat enough.
Ronald9 said on 25/Feb/18
Bales height is strange. He can look 6'1 at times but then in some photos with ramos they look almost the same height. Maybe its his proportions because his body in general looks pretty long and big. Heres a pic of him with Ronaldo and Benzema in their most recent game. I'd say Bale 184 cm Benzema 183 and Ronaldo 185.5-186

@James the real one

Hey san!I'm fine and I hope you are too.
I really appreciate your photo argumentation, in particular I agree with you about the height difference between Ronaldo and Ramos... almost 4cm seems spot on to me.

Click Here

Look at this photo - similar to one of the previous posted by you -.
Here Bale seems to be round 1cm taller than Bale. I continue to think Bale edges out Benzema by 0,5-1cm (from all photos I have seen on the net).
IMO Bale is exactly 2cm shorter than Ronaldo and 1,5cm taller than Ramos.

Bale has hair advantage. If you look closely at the eyebrow level (not the hairline level), you wil notice Benzema looks 1 cm taller than Bale:

This is only MY opinion but I think Bale is 1.83, Benzema 1.84, Cristiano 1.86 and Ramos 1.82. I think Rob was spot on, Benzema is indeed taller than Bale.

6'0 tall, not 6'1 as I seen many pics of him and Ronaldo (who's a legit 6'1) and Bale is edged out by an inch. So I give him solid legit 6'0 nothing under it though maybe at most half an inch over on a good day.

@James Rob did it perfectlty. People not used to feet and inches see 5'11 and 5'10.75 and don't pay attention to feet inches just read 180

With the new format. Now we all know that 5'11 is solid 180 and 5'10.75 a weak 180 (179.7 or so)

It is just a way to control weak and strong in cms
Richard said on 12/Aug/17
Bale is obviously a 6fter. He'd get guessed 6ft 1 by a fair amount of people. Legit 184 range imo
James said on 11/Aug/17
@Christian-6'5 3/8 You said on a previous comment that "whenever you list a celeb as "6ft 0.25in (184 cm)" or "6ft 3in (191 cm)", some people believe that they're a legit 184 or 191, which is erroneous because they actually equate to 183.5 and 190.5 respectively." Why is 6' 0.25" (183.5) not a legit 1.84? Is then 6 ft 0 (182.8) not a legit 1.83? In European countries most people do not claim its own height in decimals. So 182.8 is rounded up to 1.83 not rounded down to 1.82. It's also logical, from a mathematical point of view. In mathematics, it's wrong to round down numbers when the decimal is 5 or bigger. So it's erroneous to round down 182.8, instead of rounding up to 1.83. The same goes with 183.5, that should be roundep up to 1.84. On the other hand, 6 ft 1 (185.4) should be rounded down to 1.85. In conclusion, 183.5 is a legit 1.84, because in mathemathics you can't round down a decimal which is 5 or more, and most people don't claim its height in decimals.

"Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding down)
But increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding up)"

My mistake, 6'0.5" is actually 184.15, it's actually a 0.6-0.7cm difference from 6'0.25"
Slim 182 cm said on 6/Aug/17
I totally agree with Christian , rob you've got half intervals for feet and inches, why not add half intervals for metres and centre meters, please do this as we're not all American. And I myself could be a perfect example of the confusion. as I measure 184 out of bed and i downgraded myself a quarter inch which is ironic cause most users that miscalculate their height actually inflate themselves a quarter inch.
Editor Rob: I included it for the voting, but was 50/50 whether to put 1 decimal place in the metric part at the top.

Maybe I should do it, as it then matches up with giving 1 decimal place like the voting.
Canson said on 5/Aug/17
Tough time getting a read on this one
James said on 4/Aug/17
@Christian-6'5 3/8 Just by looking at pictures, nobody knonws if Bale is exactly 183.5, 183.6 or 183.7. There is no way to be so precise. In the metric system people are usually not listed or measured in decimals, to be so precise is generally not practice. Nobody claims to be 183.5 or 183.6.

No single football player or tennis player has its height officially listed in decimals. They are rounded. Anyhow, Bale is listed here as 6' 0.25" (1.84). That's correct, since 6' 0.25" is 183.5, and 183.5 should be rounded up to 1.84 not rounded down to 1.83.

This is how to round a number:

"Leave it the same if the next digit is less than 5 (this is called rounding down)
But increase it by 1 if the next digit is 5 or more (this is called rounding up)"

@James

I get that. I'm just saying, some people who aren't familiar with ft/in measurements will believe that a 6'0.25" and a 6'0.5" listed celeb here is the same height because both have "184 cm" listed beside, when they're 0.5cm apart.
James said on 2/Aug/17
I wanted to say "physician" instead of the non-existent word "medician" haha. Sorry, English is not my native language.
James said on 2/Aug/17
@Christian-6'5 3/8 Nobody is measured including the decimals. Medicals measure patients and they don't say "you are 183.6" or "you are 183.8". They also don't claim "you are 184.2" or "you're 183.5". At least that's what my mother says, she works as a medician as she rounds up. For example, if a patient is 173.6 cm, she just rounds it up to 1.74. She says that's how they teached her to do it, and everybody in the hospital do the same.

I live in a European country with the stabilished imperial measurement, and nobody claim their height in decimals. So if Bale is 183.6 or 1.83.7 it doesn't matter, he is correctly rounded up to 1.84 by Rob.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 2/Aug/17
Rob, should you start adding decimals next to centimeters for listings like 6'0.25" and 6'3"? I think it's a good idea because whenever you list a celeb as "6ft 0.25in (184 cm)" or "6ft 3in (191 cm)", some people believe that they're a legit 184 or 191, which is erroneous because they actually equate to 183.5 and 190.5 respectively. Also, some of the visitors will also think that a 6'0.25" and a 6'0.5" celeb, or 6'3" and 6'3.25" celeb are the exactly the same height, since some of them don't pay attention to the ft/in listing and just read the cm listing since they're not familiar with the imperial measurements.

I agreee with your morning (just out of bed) estimation but I think his lowest could be between 183cm and 183,5cm since he probably shrinks around an inch on a normal day.

James said on 23/Mar/17
@Rory Yes I can. If the picture is reliable why not? I admit there is a chance that the floor is not on the same level on my two pics. But I haven't seen enough yet to see Bale looking "strong" six footer. Always looks 2'5 cm shorter than Cristiano and there is still not enough evidence he is taller than Benzema or even Ramos. The advantage of these 2 pics is that you can see their feet and Bale doesn't look taller than Ramos.
Johnson said on 23/Mar/17
@Rory good point!!
Rory said on 22/Mar/17
You can't use one picture alone to justify a downgrade. Bale to me most typically looks a strong 6footer.
James said on 17/Mar/17

Bale doesn't look over 6 ft compared with 6 ft listed Sergio Ramos. Time for a downgrade.

I personally think pictures are more relevant than the general poll. Why? Because people can be confused. These pics show Bale is not taller than Ramos, you can even see their feet.

Take a look at pictures of Ronaldo not on his tippy toes.

Cristiano said on 13/Jan/17
legit 6' imo
trumpslave said on 12/Jan/17
Rob i believe the difference between bale and cristiano is 2 or 3 cms it's obvious. So the only way to fix this is downgrading bale to 6ft flat or upgrading cristiano to 6ft1.25 what do you think?
Rory said on 12/Jan/17
@James
Yh I used to think the difference between Bale and Ronaldo was negligible, like half an inch at most, but I'm now of the view that there could be near an inch between them. I still think though Ronaldo at a solid 6ft 1 and Bale at a strong 6 foot makes sense. A strong 6fter would measure more than 184 range out of bed so I think Bale at 185.5 out of bed is fair. Ronaldo is probably 187.5 out of bed.

(Not the Eurocup pictures haha)

IMO Bale is listed and looks 2.5 cm (an inch) shorter than Cristiano. 185.5?

I will go with with Johnson 184.5 in the morning sounds more believable for me.
James said on 11/Jan/17
@Johnson Yeah, you probably look 1.77 don't worry. My mother works as a pediatric physician and she has to measure teenagers at work. She measures these guys and girls in the morning (her worktime). When I was in high school, Physical Education teachers always measured me in the morning. I have the impression that most people is measured in the morning and do claim their height in shoes (height liars) or at least the morning barefoot height. If I claim my evening height people never believe me, so I always claim my morning height. Of course If I were to claim my height in shoes people wouldn't believe me and I would feel like a liar.
Rory said on 8/Jan/17
Bale would be 185.5 cms out of bed Imo. Can't see him waking up below 185 tbh.
Johnson said on 7/Jan/17
I claim 176 but I am obsessed because I think I appear 177 around people...and that being measured 2 times at the equivalent of 5'9 on the dot in medicals. I also gain 1 cm extra gut busting. I hold my height well I don't dwarf with people

@Johnson Interesting opinion!

Can I ask you a personal question? What height do you claim to be when people ask you?
Johnson said on 6/Jan/17
@James Out of bed 184.2 for Bale sounds very little. I am out of bed 177.5. After breakfast 176.5 teatime 175.5 before bed 175.5. I think Rob agree early morning he can be 184.5
James said on 5/Jan/17
IMO:

Out of bed 184.2

Teatime (around 6 pm) still around 182.7 or 182.8 (6 ft)

At his absolute lowest (10:30 pm) 182.5


Most time of the day he is comfortably in the 1.83 range.

Bale is a solid 6'0.5" or 184 cm, pushing 6'1" (184.5cm). One of the few listings here which are actually less than his actual measurement barefoot would be. Around 6'1.5" in football shoes easily.

If you google Gareth Bale and Harry Kane there looks a 1.25 inch difference between, but possibly Kane is losing a bit posture wise. Still, I'd have said Kane roughly 6ft 2, Bale 6'0.5.
Rory said on 12/Dec/16
I think 6'0.25 would be his low Mark. I could see him measuring 6'0.5 before lunch.

@ A zany, the pic is misleading because it's on a angle. You need to tilt it to the right right when viewing it.
And Ronaldo is slightly taller then Bale, in the pic you can see it as well.

Real Madrid and Barcelona tend to be more accurate with their heights. The premier league inflate the crap out of them. Some guys who don't even reach 6ft are down at 6ft2

We can say bale looks taller than Ronaldo and other players sometimes because he is muscular and he has big shoulders he has a very muscular physique

Bale has been the best player of Euro 2016 so far IMO. MOst games have been crap, and lots of the big name players have failed to deliver but Bale always stands out!

The tallest 6'0 I have seen. I also thought nearer 6'1, but strong 6'0 is ok I guess.

With 6'2 Chris Coleman he looks exactly this, but i agree he's a guy who you'd think taller at times.
Z187 said on 25/Jun/16
I watched Wales today, during the anthem he was next to Ledley, with an even frontal camera angle, he was the exact same height as Joe Ledley (1,83m) . He might get to 184cm earlier in the day, but he's probably something like 183.5 most of the time. In an age of inflated heights in the majority of people, I'm sure madrid wouldn't list him as shorter.

@James photos you've posted are good enough to judge. What is 100% sure is that, if measured around midday, Torres would be taller than Ramos and with high probability shorter than Ronaldo. The range is between 183,5cm and 185cm in my opinion. I agree with you that Ramos is a weak 6ft and not a strong one (and he can easily be nearer to 182cm than to 183cm after a training).
About Harrison Ford: I don't think he was a legit 185cm when younger. As he claimed in 80's he was "over 6ft", and this is what I would tipically answer to a person who asks my height. Probably he was a weak 184cm man. I would say a fraction shorter than Bale like 0,5cm.

@Rob Can you ask directly to Gareth if you can measure him with your stadiometre?
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 17/May/16

For identical do you mean 186cm range in the morning and 184cm range in the evening?

@Appe 6 ft 0.5 I know this is a bit off topic but... Have you seen films like Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Blade Runner?

Tunman said on 11/May/16
If Cristiano is a solid 185 then I would have thought 183,5 could be perfect for Bale.Question is how much difference he will have with Ramos, who generally looks a strong inch under Ronaldo.Maybe 1cm difference is perfect and Ramos may turn 182,5?
However I doubt he's taller than Zidane.Zidane is definitely 6'0.5-1 maybe 2.25 or 2.5 shorter than 6'3-3.25 Laurent Blanc.Close to him for sure but Maybe 6'0.25 for Bale and 6'0.75 for Zidane.

@Andy14
we can discuss a lot on here to talk about the height difference between them; someone would say an inch, someone 2cm, someone 1cm and other ones would even say there is no difference.
Your opinion is probably around the truth, but I think If there are 2cm difference between them is because Ronaldo holds 186cm and Gareth 184cm.
Everytime I see Bale photos (alone or not) I must not believe he's a flat 183cm player.

Bale is doing a sketch with Jack Whitehall i think, which will be interesting to see them together, i saw a short preview of it and if Whitehalls 186 then Bales definitely 184. Its a good way of assessing too as its on the burnabeau pitch, so even ground and presumably both in football boots.

@appe 6ft0.5 I have saved all those exact listings from Real Madrid with decimals. Even listings of Drenthe, Guti and Van Nistelrooy of past seasons!. My opinion is: they are 100% real, except: some listings without decimals. Those ones were brought from another source. And I don't believe either: Marcelo and Granero listings. I guess the listings were registered the first time they got measured on first team of Real Madrid and they grew up a little. About Cristiano and Kaka, it can be mixed up or it can be real!.

Benzema stood at his best can look very close to Bale, im sure both would measure 6'0.25-6'0.5 range in the evening, with Ronaldo having at least half an inch on both. Yh Kaka is slightly taller than Ronaldo..Ronaldo 185.5cm, Kaka somewhere between 186 to 186.5cm.

I remember the exact listings that were on real madrid official website 2 years ago, then they deleted them:

Ronaldo 186,5cm (I don't believe)
Benzema 184,1cm
Arbeloa 183,5cm
Sergio Ramos 183,2cm
Xabi Alonso 182,7 cm

I suppose they measured players accurately to publish these listing with millimetres.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 26/Jan/16
@James

From MY point of view there are not 2 entire cm difference between Bale and Ronaldo in the photos you posted. More 1cm-1,5cm. That's why I think 184cm for Bale and 185,5cm for Ronaldo (no more). You think instead solid 183cm for Bale and solid 185cm for Ronaldo.

Benzema is a player who usually doesn t hold a good posture IMO, so that's why he looks sometimes under the 183cm mark, but I think he s a flat 183cm guy (Bale usually edges him out)
Zidane is IMO a 184cm guy (maybe he was nearer to 185cm when he was 25-30 yo) and no less. There are a lot of photos of him with 180-181cm David Beckham in which he towers him and photos with 184cm Rafa Nadal in which they are quite identical.
The first photo you posted of Zidane and Benzema has not a good camera angle to judge (probably even the second). Anyway to me Zidane is at least 1cm taller than Benzema.

What do you think about fernando torres height James?
plus said on 25/Jan/16
@Appe There was leaked a listing where Arbeloa was listed at 183.5 and Benzema a little bit above 184 mark, so I also agree with your opinion. Funny thing is the listed leaked had Cristiano at 186.5 and Kaka at 185.5. When Kaka is in any case 0.5 or 1 cm taller than Cristiano. For me Kaka is 186.5. The players listed without decimals were not so trusty in that list (Modric of course), Marcelo apart.

Sure is that Ronaldo is taller than Zidane ( about 2cm taller is what I think); in my opinion Bale Arbeloa and Zidane are 3 guys over 183cm but under 185cm...from photo to photo someone can edge the other by a fraction.

@Arch Staton

I am regularly around a guy who is 6'5" and Bale does not have the proportions of a guy that tall - his "apparent" proportions on that picture do not even suggest that height.

Based on proportions, though, I could go for nearly (but not quite) 6'2" on that picture.

Are you judging him from his physique proportions? Because we have no idea how tall that other guy is. I'd definitely say that Bale has the kind of physique that can maximize the appearance of one's height, that's for sure.

Id say Benzema is a strong 6 foot..Ronaldo has him by about 2 cms...ive noticed with benzema often in pics his posture isn't great and he can look 182 cm in those instances but standing tall hes 183-184..he used to be listed 184.1 on the Madrid website and that seems likely for his late morning/early afternoon height...one things certain though the 187 listing is garbage.

Any opinion about Benzema?He got a 6'2 listing,OMG!but he looks clearly shorter than CR7 so not a chance for 6'1 let alone 6'2.I remember a 182 (74 kg)listing back to his Lyon years,aged 18.
Something frustrating is the listing of the players.I mean 1 cm difference is understandable if some are measured earlier but 5-6 cm or even more is just nonsense.
French player Malouda was listed up to 184,I remember the first time I saw him when they played anthem,I thought 175.How such difference occured is a mystery for me.

I think rly the 6'0.25 would be far more accurate than a flat 6ft, I think 6'0.5 is a real possibility too..hes 184 for me though, the only real question would be is he a few millimeters above or below it, so is 6'0.25 or 6'0.5..I dont think you could honestly say theres more proof to suggest he is a flat 6 ft rather than being slightly over it when you compare him to other footballers and thats why I think his listing should be revised up slightly.

Giun said on 13/Jun/15
Can at times look a little bigger than 6ft flat but I suspect that comes down to his build, head shape, long arms. That kind of frame can often make a person look bigger than they are. I'm 6ft 0.5in (184cm) but I've been guessed at 6ft 2in (which is actually my wingspan almost - 187cm). The athletic build and long rectangular head he has, have a lengthening effect on his body IMO. A solid 6ft but no more.

@Rory @6ftMagician IMO Torres does look higher in photos where he' s alone (I think due to his small head, hair and body type). Simply he looks to me a legit 185cm when alone and not always so when he is next to other measured players (for example Mandzukic, Mario Suarez, Godin and so on). Anyway is sure Gareth and Nando are very close! They' re the footballers I would like the most to meet to judge their real heights ( also Ronaldo). These are the lowest I estimate for them:
Ronaldo 185.2
Torres 184
Bale 183.5

MD said on 11/May/15
@6ftMagician, you sound kind of defensive, to be honest. I was simply saying he was bigger and you're going on how a bigger waist looks bad, how women like this-or-that-body, which, BTW, they like his type of build more, larger waist-and-all, because he's larger all the way around without being a bodybuilder.

I mean, my original post wasn't meant to be judgemental, just an observation was that your physique bears a very superficial resemblence to his. So, I was kind of surprised you'd compare you two. I wasn't interested in nor expecting a long reply that read more as a defense of your physique than anything else. Be happy with yourself; you don't have a bad physique. However, it is not this:

@6ftMagician, not to be mean, but he's considerably larger than you. There is no way he's 74kg. Maybe when he began his career, but he's way bigger than that, now. I wouldn't be shocked if he's around 80kg, now.
