The 13 footballers rescued from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai province continued their good progress in physical and mental recovery from the ordeal at Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital, Public Health Ministry inspector-general Dr Thongchai Lertwilairattapong said on Friday.

The Philippines on Friday joined the worldwide community in rejoicing with Thailand after the daring rescue of 12 members of a boys soccer team and their coach in a flooded cave complex in the northern part of the country. Anderson said one of the most crucial pieces of equipment was the positive pressure diving masks, which would expel water from the mask if one of the boys panicked. They were cut off on June 23 after heavy rains flooded the cave complex.

The British divers left London on June 26 with special rescue equipment, including radios created to work in caves.

All 13 were brought to safety over the course of a three-day rescue, organized by Thai navy SEALs and an worldwide team of cave-diving experts. "Saman Kunan is the real hero", Osottanakorn told reporters.

At the first training session since their teammates went missing in a Thai cave, the remaining "Wild Boars" said they can not wait to see their friends back on the pitch.

Icarn Viboonroongruang, the mother of 11-year-old Chanin Wibulrungreung, the youngest in the group, said her son told her through a glass window at Chiang Rai hospital that the first three nights were among the hardest.

He added that allies had agreed their national plans to get defence spending up to 2 per cent should be "credible". Macron was barely able to get out a quick "no, no" before Trump continued speaking for the two of them.

"I want to have crispy pork rice and barbecue pork rice", 15-year-old Pipat Photi said in the video.

Dr Harris and Dr Challen spoke out about the gruelling rescue mission for the first time on Thursday, sending a message of thanks for the support they had received.

Others said they were craving sushi.

One concern has been how they will deal with the fame, given the huge attention, both from within Thailand and beyond, on the case. Images from the successful, yet dramatic, rescue effort showed the boys lying in covered gurneys as they were being transported to the hospital.

Another diver, Jason Mallinson, 50, from Huddersfield, said the team left messages for the children as they flew back to the United Kingdom saying: "We're very glad we could get you out alive".

Jon M. Chu, the director of "Crazy Rich Asians", says he's planning to make his own movie about the survival and rescue of 12 boys and their soccer coach trapped in Thailand's Tham Luang Cave.
