The four boys and soccer coach brought out Tuesday on the final day of an all-out three-day push to save all of them had recovered more quickly than the boys rescued on Sunday and Monday, Chaiwetch said.

The members of the "Wild Boars" team, aged between 12 and 16, were guided to safety through the twisting, submerged passages of the Tham Luang cave by a team of worldwide expert divers flanked by Thai Navy SEALs over two days in a meticulously planned operation.

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

In this photo taken from video released by Thailand government, family members watch the rescued boys through a window at the Chiang Rai hospital in northern Thailand, Wednesday, July 11, 2018. Medical officials told reporters that they're healthy, fever-free, mentally fit and "seem to be in high spirits".

The Navy SEALs announced the successful rescue result on Tuesday, completing an astonishing against-the-odds rescue mission that has captivated the world.

But he denied they were knocked out for the miraculous rescue. Officials also said they are taking less medication, and can eat anything they want - good news for the boys who were looking forward to fried rice with basil.

In the past two days, eight boys were rescued and are now in a hospital isolation ward while they are tested for any possible infections.

The soccer teammates rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand lost weight during their 18-day ordeal and in the days before their discovery survived by drinking water dripping into their refuge, a health official said Wednesday.

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.

The plan, he said, is to bring out the four boys and their coach on Tuesday if the weather cooperates.

The group will remain hospitalized for up to a week to ensure they are properly treated for all their health conditions.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Mr Jesada said.

Each boy was strapped to one of two rescue divers tasked with shepherding him, and bundled onto stretchers to be carried through the dry parts.

"They talked to the boys far away from them, about 2 meters", Thongchai said.

The Wild Boars soccer team and their coach are expected to spend a week in hospital. And Musk was there, with an invention he'd dreamed up on the fly and brought to the rescue site, just in case it was needed.
