He said the boys were "ecstatic" when the two divers appeared in front of the ledge where they had sought sanctuary, crowding to the front of the bank to greet their rescuers.

Some of the boys recorded messages of thanks to the people who rescued them, and to the world.

Photos released by Thai officials show the boys crowded around a sketch of Kunan with their heads bowed.

The three-day, worldwide rescue operation was successful, and the boys are being held in quarantine while they recover from minor injuries and regain their strength.

He warned relatives of the boys to resist giving interviews to media over fears they could have a negative impact on their mental health. Officials also released video of the rescue effort carried out by Thai Navy SEALs in the dark cave. Saman was granted a posthumous promotion to lieutenant commander by King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun and given the royal decoration of Knight Grand Cross (first class) of the Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant, the SEALs said Saturday on their Facebook page.

The 12 boys who were rescued from a Thai cave with their soccer coach this week as part of an worldwide effort appeared in a new video released Saturday to let the world know they're all right ― and to say thanks.

FIFA, world football's governing body, had invited the boys and their coach to attend the final in Moscow, but they could not go for medical reasons.

They have been recovering in hospital since they were rescued over three days last week and will discharged on Thursday. They planned to be in the cave for an hour, but flood waters forced them deeper into the cave until they were stranded.

A team from around the world staged a spectacular rescue earlier this week.

In video messages of the boys shown at a news conference on Saturday, they are seen wearing surgical masks, a safeguard against infection that's been taken since the last of them were pulled from the Tham Luang cave on Tuesday, ending an 18-day ordeal.

The boys and their 25-year-old coach were told of his sacrifice only on Saturday, when doctors decided they were strong enough to process the news.

Their whereabouts were not known for nine days during which time they were also without food until they were found 4 km from the entrance on July 2 and finally rescued in batches.
