They hope to interview the Thai Navy Seal divers and their foreign counterparts, as well as the rescued team members and their families.

"We have been informed by the Football Association of Thailand that due to medical reasons, the boys will not be in a position to travel to Moscow for the Fifa World Cup final", the sport's governing body said on Tuesday after the rescue operation was completed. "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.

An additional four boys were brought out on Monday, and the last four boys and the coach were rescued on Tuesday. "All the thirteen Wild Boars are now out of the cave", the Thai Navy SEAL unit, which led the rescue, said on its Facebook page.

They said they were still waiting for a medic and three SEALs who had stayed with the boys in their dark refuge deep inside the cave complex to come out.

"Our operation was more successful than we expected", Narongsak said at a press briefing. Eight days later, rescue crews dramatically overcame the odds to save a group of people with no diving experience by diving with them through the flooded cave. It also appeared numerous times when they gave updates on the cave rescue, which was carried out over three nerve-wracking days.

Just before 1pm United Kingdom time, it was announced that all 12 boys and their coach were safe.

"I'm very happy that children are all out", said one of the men employed by the Thai government to help with the rescue. The rescue team will assess the first two missions and adjust their plans based on the weather and other factors.

After pondering for days how to get the 13 out, a rescue operation was launched on Sunday when four of the boys were brought out, tethered to rescue divers.

The first four boys were brought out of the cave Sunday.

US President Donald Trump hailed the rescue.

Narongsak said that rescuers were resting and replenishing oxygen tanks to store along the treacherous route the remaining boys will take out of the cave.

Two have been treated for minor lung infections, doctors added.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected".
