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.

The three-week ordeal started on June 23 when rising flood waters trapped the soccer team inside the cave with no way out.

Pak Loharnshoon is a doctor with the Thai Navy Seals, who, along with three others, volunteered to stay with the boys after they were found underground a week ago.

The boys' families can visit them wearing protective gowns and masks, it added. Some sat and made the "peace sign" gesture for the camera.

"It might be because they were all together as a team", public health ministry inspector general Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong told reporters.

Health officials said the boys would spend at least a week in hospital and around 30 days recovering at home following more than two weeks trapped inside the flooded Tham Luang cave complex.

Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who oversaw the rescue operation, said the boys should not be blamed for their near tragedy.

Chaiwetch Thanapaisal, director of Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital, told a news conference involving officials involved in the rescue that "everyone is strong in mind and heart". Two of the first group had a lung infection as well. "The best way is not to bother them and let them study".

A former member of Thailand's navy SEAL unit died during a mission in the cave on Friday.

But she added that other issues also would come into play for her, including "judicial temperament" and "judicial philosophy". Further, those Democrats backing him could garner some Republican votes in their states in the upcoming election, he argued.

The Wild Boars players are now recovering at a hospital in Chiang Rai.

Thai Navy SEALs also posted photos and a video of some of their operations in the cave on their Facebook page Wednesday. The stranded were in safe and experienced hands, however; two specialist divers accompanied each of them through their hard journey to freedom.

"This is clearly a time of grief for the Harris family, magnified by the physical and emotional demands of being part of this week's highly complex and ultimately successful rescue mission".

The rescue has dominated front-page headlines in Thailand and beyond for days.

Nopparat Kanthawong, the head coach of the Wild Boars team, told CNN that he did not know why the boys had gone into the cave.

The Brits who discovered them were among the elite divers who flew out after the Thai authorities begged the world for help.

"We can also confirm that a meeting with the Football Association of Thailand is scheduled to take place in Moscow around the World Cup final".

The next day, four more were rescued after a 9-hour mission.

Manchester City and England defender Kyle Walker, whose team faces Croatia in the second semi-final later on Wednesday, said he wanted to send shirts to the boys.

A Google search on Tuesday for the words "Thai cave rescue" revealed 359 million results.
