The children aged from 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach, ventured into the cave in Thailand's mountainous north on June 23 after football practice and got trapped when heavy rains caused flooding that forced them to take shelter on a muddy ledge.

After more than two weeks all 12 boys and their coach, stuck in the flooded Tham Luang Cave have been rescued by the Thai navy seal team.

Narongsak Osot-tanakorn, Former Governor of Chiang Rai who heads the rescue operation, said divers hope to rescue the last four boys and their coach from the cave Tuesday.

The three Navy seals and a doctor who accompanied the boys in the cave complex are still inside.

The eight boys brought out by divers over the previous two days are in "high spirits", a senior health official said.

All eight boys rescued on the first two days are being treated in an isolation ward in a Chiang Rai hospital.

The boys lost on average 2kg during their ordeal but are said to be in good physical condition.

Described in a South Australia Ambulance Service statement as a "quiet and kind man" who "didn't think twice about offering his support on this mission", Harris was lauded for his work throughout the rescue effort.

The gripping story captivated the world over the past month, and there was good news recently as all of the boys and their coach were rescued. They'll be allowed to enter the room if tests show the boys are free of infection.

They were taken by helicopter to a hospital about 70 km (45 miles) away to join their team mates in quarantine for the time being.

Jesada Chokdumrongsuk said that the boys are "healthy and smiling", he added: "the kids are footballers so they have high immune systems". He said, "The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among man". Lit by several beams of white light, the divers in wet suits and helmets are seen submerging themselves in the water and grabbing on to a metal dive line used to guide them through the winding channels of the six-mile cave.

Officials involved in the rescue of the soccer team from the Tham Luang cave complex have politely declined to deploy the submarine brought over by Tesla CEO Elon Musk to assist with the extraction of the kids.

Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha was scheduled to make a second visit to the scene late on Monday and the president of soccer's governing body, FIFA, Gianni Infantino, today invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday if they make it out of the cave in time.

Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official overseeing the rescue operation, said the boys should not be blamed for the near tragedy.
