British diver: We are not heroes after Thai cave rescue

"We would be honoured to welcome the team from the Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season". He later scraps that idea, and starts testing a "kid-size submarine" in Los Angeles to put the boys in and bring them out of the cave.

The last of the Wild Boars team were brought to the surface on Tuesday.

A huge worldwide operation rescued the stricken children, who became trapped in a flooded six-mile cave in the Doi Nang Non range on June 25, along with their 25-year-old coach, Ekaphol Chanatwong.

Managing partner Michael Scott, who lives in Thailand and was at the rescue site in Chiang Rai as the boys were being pulled to safety, made the announcement late Tuesday on Twitter.

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.

"We fought and were defeated, losing space to the water", Acting Chiang Rai governor and rescue coordinator Narongsak Osatanakorn told the media. It said he was "a real hero".

The parents have reportedly only been able to see their children through windows as they recover. "They are children being children, it was an accident", he said. He lauded the cooperation between Thai and worldwide rescuers.

Yesterday it emerged Dr Harris had been told his father had passed away shortly after the cave rescue.

A statement from Thailand's public health ministry on Thursday said two boys from the first group rescued on Sunday who were diagnosed with a lung infection were recovering well.

Video has been released showing them in good health and in good spirits, though they will stay in quarantine for a week.

The doctor said three of the boys were being treated for minor cases of pneumonia, but predicted most would be discharged after about a week. Following protocol, the five received eye examinations, mental health checkups and were vaccinated for rabies and tetanus.

"The 13 must have taken cared of each other very well [inside the cave]", Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong said. "Most of the boys lost an average of 2kg".

But it will still be up to a week before all of the boys can hug their mums and dads.

The boys' families can visit them wearing protective gowns and masks, it added. Doctors were anxious about potential infections the children could have contracted in the cave.

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. "I want to say thanks for all the support and I want to apologize to the parents".

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.
