Their relatives are being allowed to visit with them while wearing hospital gowns and masks after earlier being kept away from the boys for fear one group might spread infections to the other.

Two of the 13 frontline foreign expert divers, British pair Richard Stanton and John Volanthen, were the first to locate the team on a shelf several kilometres inside Tham Luang nine days after they went in. Doctors were anxious about potential infections the children could have contracted in the cave.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha asked that the boys be given time to recover.

The global bid to extract the team garnered attention from around the world after the team found themselves trapped on June 23 when they entered the cave after practice and were blocked by floodwaters.

It was the sudden onset of that rainy season that trapped the boys deep underground while they were exploring. Some are walking around, while others sit up in their beds, waving at cameras and flashing the Spider-Man hand sign from their quarantined unit at the Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital.

The youngest, 11, appeared asleep under a crisp white sheet.

Rescue officials said the museum would showcase how the operation unfolded, adding that it would be a "major attraction" for Thailand.

Studio co-founder, Michael Scott, lives in Thailand and said his wife grew up with Saman Gunan, the former Thai Navy Seal member who lost his life during the mission. "This mission was successful because of cooperation from everyone", he said. There were volunteers from Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Canada, Ukraine and Finland.

Speaking to CNN, an emotional Wongsukchan said he had spent 16 days worrying about his son, and he was "so happy and appreciative" of the rescue effort.

"If you can imagine being physically and mentally exhausted going through a rescue and having to deal with that, when you're at your lowest ebb, you've given it all and then you find out the sad news about your father, who's your best mate - that's really, really tough", Pearce said. That means they will not be accepting Fifa's invitation to Sunday's World Cup final in Russian Federation.

"This victory goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong", French midfielder Paul Pogba tweeted after his team beat Belgium 1-0 on Tuesday to reach the final.

By Wednesday, the first and second group rescued were eating normal food, and the final group evacuated Tuesday are undergoing medical check-ups.

The club said: "Manchester United is greatly relieved to learn that the 12 footballers and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand are now safe".
