    Joy and relief have greeted the rescue of 12 boys and their football coach from flooded caves in northern Thailand after divers completed a daring operation to bring them out.


    Seventeen days after they got trapped underground, the last five members of the group emerged on Tuesday.


    Their plight and the complex three-day-long operation to free them gripped the world's attention.

    The group was cut off on 23 June after heavy rains flooded their way back out of Tham Luang.

    Aged between about 11 and 17, the members of the Wild Boars football team had entered the cave system during an excursion with their coach.



    They were found by British divers last week, huddled in darkness on a ledge.


    Elation at the discovery of all 13 members of the group alive quickly turned to concern as it emerged just how difficult it would be to rescue boys who could not swim and had been weakened by their time underground.


    The complex, three-day operation saw four boys emerge on Sunday, four on Monday, and the final four boys plus their coach on Tuesday. All were immediately taken to hospital, but they are said to be in reasonable condition given their ordeal.


    Confirming the completion of the rescue operation, the Thai Navy Seals Facebook page announced: "We are not sure if this is a miracle, science, or what. All the 13 Wild Boars are now out of the cave."






    A team of 90 expert divers - 40 from Thailand and 50 from overseas - worked in the Tham Luang caves.


    They guided the boys and their coach through darkness and submerged passageways towards the mouth of the cave system.


    Getting to and from the trapped group was an exhausting round trip, even for experienced divers.


    The process included a mixture of walking, wading, climbing and diving along guide ropes.


    Wearing full-face masks, which are easier for novice divers than traditional respirators, each boy was accompanied by two divers, who also carried his air supply.


    The toughest part was about halfway out at a section named "T-Junction", which was so tight that the divers had to take off their air tanks to get through.


    Beyond that a cavern - called Chamber 3 - was turned into a forward base for the divers.


    There the boys could rest before making the last, easier walk out to the entrance. They were then taken to hospital in Chiang Rai.














    Global football body Fifa offered the 12 young footballers tickets for Sunday's World Cup final in Moscow, but they are too weak to travel.


    Portuguese club Benfica has invited the boys and their coach an all-expenses-paid week at its training academy.


    Manchester United - the English club several of the boys support - has offered them the chance to attend a game.


    England football players preparing for a World Cup semi-final with Croatia - including Manchester City defender Kyle Walker - are sending football kit to the boys after one of them was pictured wearing an England shirt inside the caves.
