He said he hoped the rescue mission, which would begin with 19 divers and include more throughout the day, would proceed even faster than Monday's nine-hour operation.

He was taken by helicopter and then ambulance to the hospital in Chiang Rai were the first four boys, who were rescued on Sunday, are now being held in quarantine as they undergo tests.

"All five will be brought out at the same time today", said the head of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakornon, on Tuesday.

They will join four other boys who were rescued on Sunday. They began again at 11 am on Monday after the teams had stopped for the night to rest and to replenish equipment and oxygen supplies.

Because of the heavy rains, which eventually eased in the afternoon, Narongsak said the decision had been taken to "not to waste time ... for the third planned mission".

"All 12 "Wild Boars" and coach have been extracted from the cave", the post said.

The first four boys to be rescued are aged 14 to 16, and two of them possibly have a lung infection - all are expected to stay in hospital for at least seven days.

Since the operation started, the area outside the cave's entrance has filled with media, volunteers and onlookers.

Four other youngsters and their soccer coach are still inside.

Two of the boys are now being treated for minor lung infections.

The third and final phase of the rescue mission is moving quickly with reports of the rescue of three more boys, taking the total number of boys evacuated to 11.

Divers have rescued eight of the boys.

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. After they were found on July 2, officials cautioned it could take some time to get them out, but with heavy rain forecast to hit the region authorities chose to act.

For now the boys remain in quarantine but some of their parents have been able to see their children through the glass.

With oxygen levels in their chamber falling to risky levels and complete flooding of the cave system possible, rescuers pushed ahead with the least-worst option of having divers escort them out through the extremely narrow and water-filled tunnels.

Tuesday, he tweeted from Thailand that he had been in the caves and that a mini-sub made from rocket parts and named "Wild Boar" after the boys' soccer team, was ready if needed and would be left in Thailand in case it could be of future use.

'The equipment they brought to help us is not practical with our mission'.

One boy and the football team's coach remain inside, along with a few rescue crew who have been keeping them company.

Rescuers need to hold the boys' oxygen tanks in front of them and swim pencil-like through submerged holes. They were trapped in the Tham Luan Nang Non cave that became flooded by monsoon rains while they were exploring it after a soccer practice on June 23.
