"All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the SEAL unit said on its Facebook page, adding all were safe.

Twelve members of the team and their coach became trapped on June 23, although rescuers managed to free the first eight boys on Sunday and Monday. Rescue operations have halted for the night and will restart on Tuesday.

Cave Rescue operation in Thailand is underway, but uncertain looms over the children's safety. Authorities have said the mission could take up to four days to complete and heavy rain is forecast in the coming days.

To date, each rescued boy has been escorted through the labyrinthine cave by two divers, each of them holding an oxygen tank that feeds to the survivor's mask.

The footballers still awaiting rescue are about two kilometers further in, at a point very hard to access.

Thai officials say four boys were brought out of a flooded cave in northern Thailand on Monday. But officials waited several hours before confirming their rescue. Tuesday's operation began just after 10am. "Everyone is in high spirits and are happy to get out".

At that point, four of the 12 members of the soccer team remained trapped inside along with their coach.

Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osatanakorn said the rescue mission began at 10.08am local time (4.08 BST) and involves 19 divers.

"If everything goes right, we will see four kids and a doctor and three Seals that have stayed with the kids will all come out".

But although the eight were rescued, there were concerns they may have contracted an illness while in the cave.

He said two of them possibly have a lung infection but all eight are generally "healthy and smiling".

They have no fever or serious ailments, said public health permanent secretary Dr Jesada Chokedamrongsuk at a press conference on Tuesday (July 10). "Four plus one coach, so it's five". Some are not even strong swimmers, and have had to learn to dive in conditions that claimed the life of a former Thai Navy SEAL on Friday.

"All five will be brought out at the same time today", said the head of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakornon, on Tuesday. They were also able to talk on the phone.

He congratulated Thai relevant forces on the successful conduction of the rescue mission with the effective assistance of worldwide experts and rescuers.

Australians helping rescue the young soccer team trapped in a Thai cave will be officially thanked once their extraordinary work is over. It is now unclear whether Musk or his technology will be used in the rescue efforts, but Musk confirmed via tweet that the submarine is in Thailand and ready to be used if needed.

He said he talked to Musk during his trip to Chiang Rai and thanked him for bringing his rescue equipment to Thailand for future use. He posted videos of the sub being tested in a swimming pool in California with simulated narrow passages like the cave.
