Yh I think I'd say Terry was very similar to someone like Djokovic. 189 out of bed,186.5 at worst and the majority of the day in and around a decent 187. Kind of height where its forgivable to round up to 6ft2.

Rory, more likely 6ft2 late morning. I think 6ft1½ is his low.
Rory said on 25/Sep/23
I think this 6ft1.5 is perfect for him. Looked a good 4 inches shorter than Anthony Joshua at a recent charity event. He's got a good build JT,slim and broad shouldered which means he could pull off 6ft2 easily, but when compared to others I think he definitely looks under it. I reckon he probably got measured 187 late morning.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/23
Rob, maybe 6ft1¾ is closer?

Not sure about giving him the 6ft2 although he does pull it off a lot. Earlier in the day for sure though...
Editor Rob
Current listing would be lowest I'd go, so I can see 1.75 as a possibility too.

6’1.5 minimum. I could see 6’1.75

@Rory I’m hitting 186.7 in the afternoon pal, then I shrink a bit more after gym in the evening. I think that’s a fair judge of overall height. If Terry was taller he would be listed as 6’1 3/4 or 6’2.
Rory said on 29/Jan/22
@Ryan Taylor I think in terms of this site the listings are based around what that person will measure most of the time. For someone like you, you're probably going to spend most of your day in the 186 to 186.5 area, you'll be 188 for about 1 minute and then late on you'll dip under 186,so the rationale is claim a height you'll measure most of the time, so not out of bed height or absolute lows either. Again though in your case if you measure 6ft2 out of bed I think claiming 6ft1.5 is fine, but JT would be a more solid one imo.
Ryan Taylor said on 28/Jan/22
@Rory I think it’s rare to class someones low as their height. An average or afternoon height would be more correct. I’m around 186.7 in afternoon, and according to this listing Terry would be too. If he really is taller then he should have an upgrade.
Rory said on 27/Jan/22
@Ryan Taylor, I don't think the average between out of bed and your low is really how the listings work. I've always assumed each listing is near a celebrities low range,you for example with those measurements I'd class as a 6ft1.25 guy,although it'd be fair enough if you wanted to claim 6ft1.5 too,youd measure around it late morning.

Terry I'd say is probably 188.5-9 out of bed and 186.5 at night, solid 6ft1.5 with the kind of build where he could claim 6ft2 and almost no one would object.
Ryan Taylor said on 17/Jan/22
@Rory @Rampage but if this height listing is correct, he averages 186.7, my average is 186.9?
Ryan Taylor said on 16/Jan/22
Correction my average is 186.9*
Ryan Taylor said on 16/Jan/22
@Rory @Rampage but if this height listing is correct, he averages 186.7, my average is 186.85?
Rory said on 15/Jan/22
@Ryan Taylor
Stood next to Terry I think you'd be very close but I think he probably could measure about quarter inch more than you. I think JT would always clear 186 when standing tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/22
Ryan Taylor, he might just edge you
Ryan Taylor said on 13/Jan/22
Hi Rob, I’m 188 out of bed and 185.8 before bed, would I be the same height as JT?
recapa said on 3/Oct/21
was about the same height as thierry henry or at worst a cm shorter in their peak days Click Here ,186.5-187 before bed and 188.5-189 out of bed.
recapa said on 13/Sep/21
186.5 would be perfect for john and 183.5 for lampard.i enjoyed him at his peak days in chelsea.
Canson said on 25/Jul/21
Strong 6’1 range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/21
This or 6ft1¾
Eric W Tam said on 26/May/21
This guy is so strange come to think of it. Sometimes he only looks an inch taller than Lampard like he should be, other times he looks 3-4 inches taller making him as tall as near 6'5 and at least 6'4! I'm touching 5'10 in the morning on a good day, these days, and my height difference with a 6'2 lad I know doesn't eclipse the difference Terry had on Lampard in one deceiving England photo back in the golden days. Well I do not doubt Terry is a cm above 6'2, 187 cm is a good shout.
slim 6'1 said on 12/Feb/21
Rob u should also add Dimitar berbatov
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Nov/20
Rob, how likely is 6ft2?
Editor Rob
Never really thought he looked a big 6ft 2 guy, but always seemed to clear 6ft 1
Jmac said on 9/Nov/20
Met him and Lampard in 2013 before a game, got photos with them.
I'm 192cm and a fair bit taller than Lampard.

However Terry was ing huge! No less than 6'2. Had a big presence about him too, very broad.
A few of my mates who've met him too on seperate occasions said he was way taller than expected
OriginalAnon said on 9/Nov/20
186.5 - 187cm seems about right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/20
Henry is a sloucher though

Rob is the 90kg weight is weight during his career or after retirement

from his playing days
Rory said on 2/Nov/20
No, he clearly edges Ronaldo there. If you want to see how John Terry matches up to Thierry Henry watch the opening 10 seconds of this video

Click Here

JT maybe looks a fraction taller than Henry but then he obviously has hair advantage and on balance has better posture normally than Henry, so I think both at 6ft1.5 is fair, they'd be very close.
Zahid said on 1/Nov/20
He looked more in the 6'1" range with 6'1" Ronaldo:

Here he is with 6'3" Rio: Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/20
In the early days he was listed 6ft, then 6ft1 and then in the last 10-12 years it's been 6ft2. I originally thought he was just another Steve Gerrard type, a 6ft guy who got over listed which is pretty common for players who become popular. But clearly not the case with Terry. He does generally look at least 6ft1½ if not 6ft2...I think he might actually edge Thierry Henry
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Nov/20
@ Nik - John and Thierry are the same height. Blue Peter was a kids programme and didn't have a football team!
Nik Ashton said on 1/Nov/20
@ Sandy Cowell - It would have been interesting if he had played for the mighty “Blue Peter”!

I wonder if he is as tall as Thierry Henry!

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/20
Weak 6ft2 maybe is possible.
Eric W Tam said on 31/Oct/20
Yes finally! 186-187. Maybe 188 on his best day ever. And probably 185 after that night in Moscow lol.
Johnny 181-182 cm said on 31/Oct/20
@Rob can you make a page for Maldini? The guy is a legend.
Hulk.23 said on 31/Oct/20
I think he’s a solid 187cm guy like Paolo Maldini. I think maybe 6’1.75/187cm would be fairer
Johnny 181-182 cm said on 31/Oct/20
I always thought Terry was a 6ft 3 guy but apparently I was mistaken.
Heightboss said on 30/Oct/20
There is this video with Ivanovic (listed at 185cm) and Hazard where they stand next to each other with suits on and he looked same or even smaller than Ivanovic
miko said on 30/Oct/20
He can look anywhere in the 6'1.25/6'1.75 range.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Oct/20
⭐ For a split second, I thought John was sporting 'Blue Peter' socks!

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/20
long overdue
Nik said on 29/Oct/20
I have seen him listed as 6'1" on an online site!
Rory said on 29/Oct/20

Even I'VE heard of John Terry the footballer! I had no idea he's all of six foot one-and-a-half though.
