He told the Associated Press Wednesday that the boys lost about two kilograms of weight during their time in the cave.

Manchester United on Tuesday invited the newly rescued Thai youth soccer team, along with their rescuers, to travel to England to see an upcoming match. "It's called anxiolytic, something to make them not excited, not stressed".

None of the boys was heard speaking in the clips shown at the news conference.

A Thai government official says all 12 boys and their coach are doing well after their rescue from the Tham Luang cave.

Thai authorities imposed a media lockdown during the evacuation, even holding large white umbrellas around the boys as they lay in stretchers outside the cave as they were transferred to helicopters bound for hospital.

Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong (L), inspector general of the public health ministry, and Chaiwetch Thanapaisal, director of the Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital, attend a news conference in Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 11, 2018. Authorities are anxious about the possibility of infections picked up in the cave.

Thailand's junta chief told reporters on Tuesday that the group had been given a "minor tranquiliser" to help calm their nerves.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha asked that the boys be given time to recover.

"What was really important was the coach and the boys all came together and discussed staying strong, having the will to live, having the will to survive", Anderson said. "When I visited them, I also told them to be good citizens".

The group ventured into the vast cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai after soccer practice on June 23 and were trapped when a rainy season downpour flooded tunnels. They were found by a pair of British divers 10 days later, huddled on a small, dry shelf just above the water, smiling with relief but visibly skinny. They're young and inexperienced. Highlighting the dangers, a former Thai navy SEAL volunteering to work on the rescue died Friday while replenishing oxygen canisters placed along the escape route.

Narongsak Osatanakorn is the official who oversaw the rescue operation.

He said: "We are not heroes". This mission was successful because of cooperation from everyone. "For SEALs, this is what we were trained for".

"We're here really looking at this as a movie that could inspire millions of people across the globe", Scott added.

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 other five on the team were Thai navy SEAL divers.

Tense footage of the incredible Thailand rescue has highlighted just how risky the path to safety was for the 12 boys.

Pure Flix Entertainment, an Arizona-based Christian film studio, said it's seeking the movie rights to the harrowing mission to rescue the soccer team and their 25-year-old coach from the flooded cave.
