In this image made from video, released by Thailand Government Spokesman Bureau, family members watch the rescued boys through a window outside the recovery ward at the Chiang Rai hospital in Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand, Wednesday, July 11, 2018.

Rescue workers extracted the last group of the "Wild Boars" soccer team from the Tham Luang cave on Tuesday night, ensuring a happy ending to a 17-day ordeal that had gripped the world.

Their physical and mental strength was praised by rescuers to help them survive without food in the cave.

Some of the children were not capable of navigating the treacherous passageways of the cave complex alone, making the operation more challenging.

"Some of them were asleep, some of them were wiggling their fingers". That's good news for the boys who had said they were looking forward to fried rice with basil.

They discovered the group on a ledge surrounded by water after nine days trapped underground.

The Thai Navy Seals have also published dramatic footage of the operation itself, showing how expert divers navigated the Wild Boar football team through the perilous journey to the surface.

Parents of the first eight boys freed have been able to visit them but had to wear protective suits and stand 2 meters (7 feet) away as a precaution. At other times, they endured dives lasting up to half an hour in the pitch-black waters.

"This mission was successful because of cooperation from everyone", he said.

The four boys and soccer coach brought out Tuesday on the final day of an all-out three-day push to save all of them had recovered more quickly than the boys rescued on Sunday and Monday, Chaiwetch said.

They were all brought safely following a mission fraught with obstacles that ended late on Tuesday.

Closer to home, Chiang Rai locals rejoiced at the odds-upsetting rescue bid.

The group will remain hospitalized for up to a week to ensure they are properly treated for all their health conditions.

"To see all that heroic bravery in the cave, and to get all the divers out, it's just such a touching event and so personal to me", he said in a video on Twitter. filmed at the rescue site.

Wrapped in foil blankets to keep them warm, the boys are threaded through a claustrophobic tunnel compared to the "S-bend" of a toilet.

But they were prodded into the risky task of bringing the team through submerged chambers and claustrophobic passages as oxygen levels in the cave plummeted and rains menaced.

The Thai boys saved from a flooded cave endured dives in zero visibility and in places were put in a harness and high-lined across rocky caverns, in what a leader of the United States contingent called a "once in a lifetime rescue".

That sign off quickly turned into a hashtag shared across social media, where luminaries of business, politics and sport extended their best wishes to the team and the rescuers.
