A Thai government official says all 12 boys and their coach are doing well after their rescue from the Tham Luang cave. They wave to the camera, give the peace sign and press their hands together in prayer to show gratitude.
Narongsak said about half of the 13 foreign divers on the crack team of 18 who rescued the boys were British.
Former Navy seal Chaiyananta Peeranarong told AFP news agency: "Some of them were asleep, and some of them were wiggling their fingers, kind of groggy - but they were breathing".
Expert divers from the Thai Navy SEALs, experienced in conventional diving situations, were faced with an unprecedented challenge.
"Some of them were asleep, some of them were wiggling their fingers". On Tuesday authorities said some of the boys had asked to eat bread with chocolate spread, but mostly they'll be given a food similar to milk which is rich in proteins and nutrients. With the help of 16 other divers, they ferried the boys and their coach to safety through intense stretches of water.
Thailand's junta leader Prayut Chan-O-Cha on Tuesday said the boys were given a "minor tranquiliser" to keep them calm.
"He's got a very bouncy Australian accent, and they seemed to find that quite relaxing and reassuring".
Thailand spent yesterday celebrating the successful mission. None of the four boys who were the first group to be evacuated from the cave has a fever, and the three boys who have minor lung infections are improving, Thai officials said, adding that they are taking less medication and can eat anything they want. "Most of the boys lost an average of 2 kg", Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong, an inspector for Thailand's health department, told reporters.
The saga of the "Wild Boars" gripped the world, with the lives of the group hanging in the balance as the threat of heavy rain injected urgency to an already perilous extraction bid.
