Some of their parents are seen crying and waving to them from behind glass.

The third and final group, including the soccer team's 25-year-old coach, which emerged Tuesday, are taking antibiotics and at least some had lung infections.

Speaking earlier Wednesday, health ministry inspector Tongchai Lertvirairatanapong said the boys were in "good condition", despite each losing an average of two kilograms (4.4 pounds) in weight during their time in the cave.

Divers extracted the team in a high-risk mission inside the flooded passageways.

Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn, who oversaw the rescue operation, said the boys should not be blamed for their near tragedy.

The 12 boys and their coach who were saved from a cave in northern Thailand are doing well mentally and physically, a Thai health official has said, amid an outpouring of gratitude for those involved in their rescue. The real heroes, he said, were the rescuers.

"We are really happy to see all the boys return to their families". He lauded the cooperation between Thai and global rescuers. Among them was Australian doctor Richard Harris.

Fox raises Sky offer to $32 billion in battle with Comcast
Following the announcement, Sky's share price was down 1.3 per cent at 14.81, though above the improved offer. Analysts said it was not a knock-out, and Fox did not say it was its final offer.

One of the boys is showing signs of pneumonia, but doctors are not concerned. A few of the boys have been treated for lung infections, and most were given antibiotics to combat low white blood cell counts, CBS News reports. 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.

This handout video grab taken from footage released by The Royal Thai Navy late July 2, 2018, shows missing children inside the Tham Luang cave of Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park.

The catchphrase "Hooyah" was trending on Twitter after Thai Navy SEALs used it repeatedly on their Facebook page as a rallying cry during the operation.

But it will still be up to a week before all of the boys can hug their mums and dads.

Reporting from the site, with another 1,000 journalists from around the world, broadcaster NOS said on Monday that the story was like a film script - fortunately, with a mostly happy ending.

Each boy was strapped to one of two rescue divers tasked with shepherding him, and bundled onto stretchers to be carried through the dry parts.

Even before the final rescues, tributes began for the courage of the boys and their ability to survive the ordeal.

French football star Paul Pogba dedicated his country's World Cup semifinal victory over Belgium to "the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong" he tweeted.

Narongsak, giving details of the rescue, said falling oxygen levels inside the cave complex had added a sense of urgency.
