All 12 of the boys and their 25-year-old coach were brought to safety over the course of a three-day rescue, organised by Thai navy SEALs and an global team of diving and caving experts, that ended on Tuesday.

The 18-day ordeal riveted much of the world - from the terrible news that the 13 were missing, to the first flickering video of the huddle of anxious yet smiling boys when they were found by a pair of British divers almost 10 days later.

Angle warned that if the boys continue to be defined as the kids who were rescued from the cave, it could become the singular characteristic of their identities.

Footage released by the SEAL team showed seemingly prone boys - at least one in full diving mask and wetsuit - being stretchered along the jagged passageways. Some are walking around, while others sit up in their beds, waving at cameras and flashing the Spider-Man hand sign from their quarantined unit at the Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital.

After exploring the caves on June 23, the soccer team and their coach were left stranded, around four kilometres inside the cave system after heavy rains and floodwater blocked their pathway out.

Meanwhile, reports say the boys and the coach were sedated to stop them panicking during the risky rescue.

The Blues talisman Eden Hazard could leave the club this summer because of the chaos at the club regarding a managerial change. The 22-year-old was in the Spain side for the World Cup but was knocked out by Russian Federation in the last 16.

Speaking earlier Wednesday, health ministry inspector Tongchai Lertvirairatanapong said the boys were in "good condition", despite each losing an average of two kilograms (4.4 pounds) in weight during their time in the cave.

Erik Brown, a Canadian who was one of 13 foreign expert divers in a core team of 18, said he was terrified as he swam, crawled and waded through the labyrinthine cave.

The young soccer players rescued from a cave in Thailand are resting comfortably in a hospital. Four more were brought out on Monday, and the operation ended Tuesday with the rescue of the last four boys and their 25-year-old coach. Before their discovery, they survived by drinking water dripping into their cramped refuge.

They were given anti-anxiety medication to keep them calm. "They talked to the boys far away from them, about 2 meters [6.5 feet]", Thongchai said. He said his wife grew up with Samarn Poonan, the former Thai navy SEAL who died during the mission. "Of course, I'm very happy if the boys get Thai nationality, as they will be able to access full citizenship rights". Sources also told us the boys have been asking about their cleats and when they can get back on the soccer field.

"KBL is proud to be involved in the Thailand cave rescue mission", the company in a statement 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.
