Boys from the youth soccer team trapped inside Tham Luang cave greet members of the Thai rescue team in Chiang Rai, Thailand, in this still image taken from a July 3, 2018 video by Thai Navy Seal.

A newly released photo shows the heroic Thai Navy SEALs who spent a week with the boys trapped inside a flooded cave as the kids waited to be rescued. "They are getting forced to do something that no kid has ever done before", Ivan Karadzic, a diver involved with the rescue mission told BBC.

On Sunday, officials said it could "take days" to rescue the remaining boys and their coach.

Their rescue was followed a few hours later by the safe return of a medic and three SEAL divers who had stayed for days with the boys in their cramped refuge in the cave.

He said the group can eat, move about, and talk. He added that all of them were generally healthy and in good spirits, thanks to their "high immunity" from playing football. They were immediately sent for a medical examination, but there has been no news about their condition.

The 12-boy soccer team and their coach were rescued after surviving 17 days inside the flooded cave in northern Thailand. In light of the flooded cave incident in Thailand, Musk put his team to work on Saturday designing a solution for the rescue mission in the form of a tiny submarine that could maneuver through the tight passages of the cave.

Experts have previously said Musk's plans may not be of much use due to huge numbers of rescuers already working on the mission and their success in so far bringing eight out of the 12 boys to safety.

The acting governor of Chiang Rai state, Narongsak Osottanakorn, led the rescue operation.

But two boys had "suspected lung problems which are being investigated", she added.

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach are now being assessed in hospital.

The hazardous bid to rescue the boys - aged between 11 and 16 - started unexpectedly on Sunday when the rescue team said conditions were flawless for the evacuation.

Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, who visited the rescued boys on Monday night, confirmed yesterday that the stranded footballers were given medication to prevent anxiety and panic - identified as a key danger - while being evacuated.

US President Donald Trump hailed the rescue.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected".

"We would love to welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season", the club said on its official Twitter account.
