Boys rescued from Thailand’s Tham Luang Cave had to turn down an invitation to the World Cup to remain under medical care. More

The cave where 12 young Thai soccer players and their coach were trapped for over two weeks - is set to become a museum, forever preserving the incredible mission to rescue them, an official said.

Earlier on Wednesday, the head of the Thai Navy Seals told the BBC that "hope became reality" with the rescue of the boys and their coach from the Tham Luang cave.

The "Wild Boars" football team got stuck inside the cave on June 23 after flooding caused by heavy monsoon rains blocked the entrance.

Co-founder Michael Scott told Reuters news agency that producers from the company were already on the ground interviewing rescue workers.

Volanthen and fellow Brit Rick Stanton were the first rescuers to find the boys deep in the Tham Luang cave complex.

"The big heros in this are these children and the four Thai Navy SEALs who were looking after them".

"Some of them were asleep, and some of them were wiggling their fingers, kind of groggy, but they were breathing".

Mr Turnbull posted a video of their conversation, where he thanks them for their "extraordinary work" and says they have done Australia proud.

Chairman, at no time in any of these texts did those personal beliefs ever enter into the realm of any action I took". Strzok, you are under subpoena and are required to answer the question".

Doctors treating the 12 boys and their coach who survived their misadventure said their health is normal, although a few have low fevers and mild ear infections.

"On behalf of the operation unit, we want to send our condolences to him and I do have to thank him a lot", Thai mission commander Narongsak Osotthanakorn said at a news conference Wednesday.

Junta leader Prayut Chan-O-Cha on Tuesday said the boys had been given a "minor tranquilliser" to prevent anxiety during the complex extraction bid.

"If you didn't use the water pump in that location, you could only come out with an oxygen tank", he said, adding the remaining people did not have diving gear to hand. When divers reached them later, they brought additional food, water and blankets. "This mission was successful because of cooperation from everyone", he said.

"From our assessment, they are in good condition and not stressed". A health department inspector previously told journalists that one of the boys had a lung infection and that all children were vaccinated for rabies and tetanus, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Thai football team rescued from a cave after 17 days underground will not attend the World Cup final due to medical reasons, FIFA has confirmed. We are so happy to hear that our son is out of the cave and to welcome him home. That ultimately proved not to be an option when oxygen levels within the tunnels dropped to unsafe levels.

Thirteen global cave divers joined five Thai Navy SEALs in the unsafe rescue operation.

That sign off quickly turned into a hashtag shared across social media, where luminaries of business, politics and sport extended their best wishes to the team and the rescuers.
