Volunteers assisting in the rescue of a football team and their coach from a flooded cave in Thailand react as the last person is stretchered out.

Saman Kunan, a 38-year-old former SEAL, died on July 5 while aiding in the perilous rescue mission.

Thai rescuers brought a ninth boy out from the Tham Luang cave this afternoon, police and navy sources said, after 18 days trapped underground.

The four were rescued from the cave on Sunday in a better than expected result against the threat of impending monsoonal rain.

He is very listened to in the group. "Against Portugal we thought we had won it before the start of the game". Hazard continued: "The French team has done what they have done since Didier Deschamps came in as coach".

The rescue operation, which commenced on Sunday, was carried out in three phases.

The plight of the boys and their coach has riveted Thailand and much of the world - from the heart-sinking news they were missing to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys when they were found 10 days later by a pair of British divers. Heavy rainfall was reported at the cave area before dawn Monday, July 9, 2018.

Two more boys reportedly left the cave complex a short time later and were transferred to a medical facility on site, followed soon after by a fourth boy, says an eyewitness stationed at the entrance to the cave.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said that the successful rescue at Tham Luang will set an example for other rescue operations in the future.
