Despite spending days in the dark, dank, cave health officials said the boys - who are aged 11 to 16 - are in good physical and mental health and eating normal food. "I have to praise the coach who took care of the footballers very well", Lertvirairatanapong said.

The 12 Wild Boars players and their coach had entered the cave to go exploring June 23 but monsoon rains filled the tight passageways, blocking their escape.

CHIANG RAI, July 11 -The boys rescued from a Thai cave were passed "sleeping" on stretchers through the treacherous pathways, a former Thai Navy SEAL who was the last diver to leave the Tham Luang complex told AFP today.

Messages were sent to the Thai boys following the Thai cave rescue.

But Chaiyananta, whose job was to help transfer the kids along between chambers two and three, said they were all "sleeping" on the harrowing journey out.

"Some have had muscle infections, cold, flu, and some psychologists have been taking care of them to relieve stress", Health Ministry Inspector Lertvirairatanapong said.

Parents of the first eight boys freed have been able to visit them but had to wear protective suits and stand 2 meters (7 feet) away as a precaution.

But they pressed on and, on July 8, the rescue began. One of the boys lies on it covered in a metallic, reflective material.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters today that the entire operation would not have been possible without the unique skills that Harris brought to the mission, though he did not elaborate.

Thai Navy SEALs also posted photos and a video of some of their operations in the cave on their Facebook page Wednesday.

The rescue sparked jubilation with Thais heaping praise on the rescue team of foreign and local divers as the triumphant tagline "Hooyah" pinballed across social media.

"We just did what we could", he said yesterday.

Chaiwetch Thanapaisal is director of Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital.

Indeed, it was almost another week before the first of the "Wild Boars" soccer team was brought out of the cave by elite divers who had, with Thai special forces, planned the rescue meticulously - but quickly, as more rains threatened.

Each boy was accompanied underwater by two divers carrying their oxygen tanks for them, and guiding them through the murky tunnels.

The most risky part of the journey out of the labyrinthine cave system was the first kilometer, during which they were required to squeeze through a narrow flooded channel.

Chu took to Twitter to give his thoughts on this project and said, "I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story! That won't happen or we'll give them hell", Chu tweeted, adding it's "a lovely story" about human beings saving other human beings.
