Real Madrid took their customary team photo before the UEFA Super Cup match with Sevilla. Metro UK dutifully noted Ronaldo stood on his tip toes to look taller than his Real Madrid teammates. A quick run through the photo archives indicates this is his standard operating procedure.
Here is Ronaldo from the Champions League semi-final match with Bayern Munich on April 29th.
Here he is before Real Madrid played Schalke in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 on March 18th. French defender Rafael Varane, standing to his right, is 6’3″.
He wasn’t going to let the unfashionable orange kits daunt him in the first leg either.
In case you figured this was strictly a Real Madrid thing, he did it at the World Cup too. Here he is before the Germany match…
We’d call him vain. But if our images were worth nine figures to advertisers across the globe, we’d do whatever it takes.
