And two production companies have reportedly already shown an interest in the story.

He added: "We are not heroes".

"I could not be more excited; this story has meant so much to me as I followed it", Pure Flix's Michael Scott said this week. They were able to check the watch for the time for the first three days.

Schnauer helped with the final rescue mission to free the football team from the cave.

Rick Stanton, from Coventry, told reporters after arriving at Heathrow Airport in London: "As they were coming down the slope we were counting them so we got to 13". One of the boys lies on it covered in a metallic, reflective material.

"We are humbled to have been able to provide our expertise and experience to assist in this global operation led by the Thai government". "You have made a name for the SEALs unit", a senior navy official told those gathered. The boys moved 400 meters further in as the ledge had become covered by water.

Despite spending days in the dark, dank, cave health officials said the boys - who are aged 11 to 16 - are in good physical and mental health and eating normal food. The boys are expected to be released within seven days barring complications.

Bill Whitehouse, vice-chairman of the British Cave Rescue Council, said that some of the divers "have been on pretty hairy recovery dives before. the dives in this case were not particularly deep and nothing too extraordinary". Getting trained divers into the cave was easier than getting untrained kids out.

Schnauer admitted he had only played a "small role" in the effort and paid tribute to the impressive duration which the rescue divers were underwater in the cave network.

As last night's rescue mission came to an end, Thailand's Prime Minister General Prayuth Chan-ocha visited the cave entrance to offer his support.

The rescue of the "Wild Boars" team was still being celebrated in Thailand as the 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach recovered in a local hospital.

Images from the successful, yet dramatic, rescue effort showed the boys lying in covered gurneys as they were being transported to the hospital.

Thirteen foreign divers and five Thai Navy SEALs guided boys and their coach out in a complicated three-day operation that ended on Tuesday.

At least two companies are also looking to make a film telling the story of the rescue.

"I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story", Chu wrote on Twitter on Wednesday, hours after news emerged that the Christian film studio Pure Flix Entertainment was scouting the rights to the story.

Heavy rains had flooded the Tham Luang cave blocking the football team in after they first entered on June 23. People may have been glued to their screens when the actual drama unfolded, but the film was not a box office success.
