On the day they were discovered by the British divers, Adul was reportedly the only one on the team who could speak English, and he did a brilliant job in updating the divers with what they needed, including info on how long they've been stuck inside the cave.

An additional four boys were brought out on Monday, and the last four boys and the coach were rescued on Tuesday.

Although the boys spent nine days without food and more than two weeks in the dark, damp cave, they seem to be in good health.

"It might be because they were all together as a team, helping one another out", public health ministry inspector-general Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong told reporters, singling out their 25-year-old coach for keeping their spirits high.

Authorities held a press conference early Wednesday in Chiang Rai to discuss the boys' continued recovery from a variety of minor ailments.

The 12 boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their coach became trapped on June 23 when they were cut off by floodwaters while exploring the cave. "Most of the boys lost an average of 2kg", he said.

The extensive search-and-rescue operation, which included more than 1,000 people from various nations, has now switched to a treatment process.

Acknowledging the 38-year-old former military diver who died while preparing the rescue, Prayuth said: "his honour, sacrifice and legacy will forever be in our hearts".

The death of Saman Kunan, who passed out while placing oxygen canisters along the route divers had to take to get the children out, highlighted the danger involved in the three-day operation. There were also doctors stationed throughout the journey to monitor the condition of the boys, AFP reported.

US President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May were among those congratulating the team on their safe return on social media. "The world was watching and will be saluting the bravery of all those involved", May tweeted.

Footage released by the SEALs showed parts of the rescue operation that captivated the world. Doctors were anxious about potential infections the children could have contracted in the cave.

The boys have so far only been allowed to see their parents through the glass of a quarantined room, due to the risk of infection.

"Of course he was extremely happy", Vaessen said. "This story has meant so much to me as I have followed it in Thailand this summer", he said in a video filmed at the scene of the flooded cave in the country's north.

Thai officials said Tuesday that before the cave can be opened to the public as a tourist attraction, extra safety precautions will have to be put in place due to the risky flooding that often affects the cave.
