Since the rescue, Tham Luang cave is becoming a tourist attraction and Hollywood directors have already started scouting for Wild Boars: The Movie. The boys range in age from 11 to 16.

"Thank you very much for taking care of our children".

The rescue mission began after the youth soccer team became trapped when heavy rainfall flooded the cave system on June 23.

When asked if he had a message for Thai kids, he told them not to go into a cave when it's raining, eliciting laughter.

Thai officials have been generous with their praise of foreign volunteers who were essential in the complicated search and rescue operation, including Mr Volanthen and Mr Stanton who were the first to discover the boys.

The boys were described as generally being in normal condition in a Chiang Rai hospital, though their levels of recuperation varied because they were removed from the cave over three days.

The boys had earlier received an invitation to come watch the World Cup final in Russian Federation, but doctors said they could not go as they were still confined to their hospital beds.

The first boys rescued on Sunday have been allowed to see their relatives through a glass partition and speak to them on a telephone line.

In the video, one of the boys flashed a "victory" hand gesture.

Described in a South Australia Ambulance Service statement as a "quiet and kind man" who "didn't think twice about offering his support on this mission" Harry, as he is known, was lauded for his work in throughout the rescue period.

"The bravery and heroism I've witnessed is incredibly inspiring, so, yes, this will be a movie for us", said CEO and co-founder Michael Scott, who lives in Thailand part-time and was on the scene of the rescue.

On Wednesday night, provincial governor and rescue commander, Narongsak Osatanakorn, appeared to imply in a public address that citizenship is a possibility for the four. They would then need to recuperate at home for 30 days, he said.

The team became captured within a cave in Thailand on June 23 and survived for 18 long days before being miraculously rescued by a courageous group of worldwide divers. They were told to remain calm and motionless as two divers prepared to tug them through murky waters and along guide ropes that had been put in place.

Getting them out - which involved teaching boys as young as 11 who were not strong swimmers to dive through narrow, submerged passages - proved a monumental challenge.

Chu took to Twitter to give his thoughts on this project and said, "I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story!"

"The favourable outcome that has been achieved is nearly beyond our imagination when we first became involved", they said.

The soccer team went for regular explorations of the cave.
