Thai cave boys, coach invited to Spain to see football 'heroes'

Thai cave survivors unable to attend World Cup final says FIFA FIFA has confirmed members of the Wild Boars Football Club are not well enough to attend Sunday's World Cup final

"It might be because they were all together as a team, helping one another out", public health ministry inspector-general Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong told reporters, singling out their 25-year-old coach for keeping their spirits high.

The new video from the navy does not include footage of the divers in the water with the boys, but it does show a team of people using pulleys, string and rubber tubes to haul a green, kayak-shaped stretcher out of a tight crevice.

The father of Richard Harris, a key member of the team of global experts involved in the dramatic rescue mission, died soon after all the boys were freed.

The four boys rescued on Sunday are now eating normal food and walking around, while the four extracted on Monday are being given soft food.

Hospital Director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal said at a news conference that "everyone is strong in mind and heart", The Washington Post reported.

The group were taken out in three batches by a team of 13 global divers flanked by the Thai Navy SEALs, who greeted each successful rescue with a "Hooyah" on their Facebook page.

The first images have been released of the Thai soccer team recovering in the hospital after being rescued from a cave.

"I haven't asked the coach yet why he chose that order", he said.

The Wild Boars soccer team and their coach went missing on June 23 in the Tham Luang Nang cave in northern Thailand following a flash flood. One Thai navy diver died last Friday while supporting the mission.

The death of Saman Kunan, who passed out while placing oxygen canisters along the route divers had to take to get the children out, highlighted the danger involved in the three-day operation.

Merkel replied by pointing out that Germany is one of the largest contributors of troops for NATO's missions. The US pays 22.1% of these budgets, while Germany pays 14.8%, for example.

Dr Richard "Harry" Harris was described as "essential" to the rescue operation because of his unique skills and expertise, including 30 years of cave diving and his work as a medical retrieval specialist.

'I am inspired by the remarkable worldwide cooperation, ' Mr Turnbull said.

Officials plan an interactive museum at the Tham Luang cave based on the historic rescue mission that will feature items such as clothing that key rescuers wore during the operation, Narongsak said.

A Thai health official said earlier Wednesday that the soccer teammates had lost weight during their two-week ordeal, but had water while they were trapped and remained in good health.

Some of the first boys to be freed have been able to see their parents, he added.

Police officers took photographs of each other at the massive cave entrance, as pumps continued to suck out huge volumes of water.

That left 20 or so divers scrambling to flee the rising waters, he said, explaining they narrowly made it out time.

Thailand's Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha on Wednesday thanked people involved in the rescue.
