Onlookers watched on as the boys were taken to hospital

The news comes after four boys were rescued when the operation began on Sunday.

As the eight boys already rescued from Thailand's Tham Luang Cave convalesce in a Chiang Rai hospital, an global rescue team has entered the flooded cave system for the third consecutive day to free the four children and their 25-year-old soccer coach still trapped inside. A doctor and three Thai Navy SEALs, who have stayed with the group since shortly after they were discovered huddled on a muddy ledge deep inside the Tham Luang cave complex, will also come out, Narongsak added. A massive global search operation was launched and it took 10 days to locate the boys, who had taken shelter on a dry slope deep in the complex. But rescue officials were also anxious about dwindling oxygen levels in the cave.

The chief the rescue mission said they are being kept apart from relatives because of infection concerns, Reuters reports.

Elon Musk hoped to save the young soccer team trapped in a northern Thailand cave, over the weekend building a rescue submarine that he thought could act as an escape pod for the children and their coach.

"The water level is still at a satisfactory level and we have enough teams to complete the mission", Narongsak said on Monday.

The plight of the boys and their coach has drawn global attention since they became trapped when they went into the cave after soccer practice on June 23.

Thai authorities said the four boys rescued from the cave are hungry but in good health. They are all members of a youth soccer team called the Wild Boars. HE said the eight boys rescued are in "high spirits" and have strong immune systems because they are soccer players.

Monday's operation began at 11 a.m. and took nine hours, two fewer than Sunday, with rescuers helped by the experience they have accumulated, Narongsak told a news conference punctuated with rounds of applause.

The four were the first of the 13 Mu Pa team members who were evacuated from the cave since they became trapped on June 23.

Mr Jesada said they were uncertain what type of infections the boys could face "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

"Now they have no fever and can do their normal activities", Chokedamrongsuk said.

Musk tweeted: "Just returned from Cave 3". On Sunday, officials waited until several hours after the rescued boys had been transported to hospitals to announce their rescue.

Divers have rescued eight of the boys.

The mood was in stark contrast to the glum atmosphere at the site last week, especially after the announcement of the death on Friday of the former Thai navy Seal Saman Kunan, who died while placing air tanks in the cave.
