Four boys and their soccer coach remain in the cave.

"All eight are in good health, no fever... everyone is in a good mental state", Jedsada Chokdamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the public health ministry, told reporters Tuesday at Chiang Rai hospital where the boys were recuperating.

Nargonsak said this phase may take longer than the previous two rescue missions, which both lasted several hours.

Elite British divers have been assisting in the risky rescue operation, highlighted by the death of a Thai navy diver last week.

Rescue operations have halted Monday and will resume rescuing the remaining four boys and their coach from the Tham Luang caves on Tuesday.

Elite British divers have been assisting in the painstaking rescue operation.

A team of foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALS guided the boys during a nine-hour operation through almost 4 km of sometimes submerged, pitch-dark channels from where they have been trapped for more than a fortnight.

Rescuers have evacuated eight boys from a cave in northern Thailand.

Sunday night, teams of divers brought out four of the trapped boys to waiting ambulances.

Rescuers working at a cave site in northern Thailand have suspended operations for the day after bringing four more boys out of the flooded cave system on Monday.

That Terrifying Giant-Orange-Nappy-Wearing Trump Blimp Is Officially Alive
Donald Trump told The Sun that the blimp makes him feel like he's not welcome here. At the time, Khan also said "Trump is not welcome here" in London .

They'll also be bringing back 3 Navy SEALS and a medic who have been in the cave with the team since the first day of the rescue efforts. Some are not even strong swimmers, and have had to learn to dive in conditions that claimed the life of a former Thai Navy SEAL on Friday.

"If the lab results are negative - no infection or any disease - they can visit but they have to wear [medical] gown, face mask and hair cap".

The four are undergoing medical checks in a hospital in the provincial capital and were not yet allowed close contact with relatives due to fear of infections.

So the challenge for the children lies in keeping in keeping calm while remembering the minutiae of a new skill, Foisey said.

USA personnel have staged equipment and prepared the first three chambers of the cave system for safe passage, he said.

"We have not been told which child has been brought out".

The worldwide soccer federation, FIFA, had already invited the boys to attend the World Cup final in Russia this Sunday.

"Mini sub arriving in about 17 hours", Musk tweeted Sunday.

Writing in elegant Thai script, the boys urged their parents not to worry, adding that they hoped they wouldn't get too much homework after being rescued and couldn't wait to eat their favorite foods again.
