Thailand celebrated the successful mission to free 12 boys and their football coach from a cave on Wednesday (July 11), with the nation heaping praise on the rescue team as the triumphant tagline "Hooyah" pinballed across social media.

Some of the boys rescued from a Thai cave seen in hospital in Chiang Rai.

Officials plan an interactive museum at the Tham Luang cave based on the historic rescue mission that will feature items such as clothing that key rescuers wore during the operation, Narongsak said. "They are children being children, it was an accident", he said.

He lauded the co-operation between Thai and worldwide rescuers. Among them was Australian doctor Richard Harris.

"Ekk really loves and cares for the boys", he added, of a figure who is emerging as something of a hero.

Even so, all need to be monitored in the hospital for seven days and then rest at home for another 30 days, he said.

None of the boys was heard speaking in the clips shown at the news conference.

But it is also possible they are an infection risks to others. "None of them show a level of stress that we should be concerned about".

"When the time is right, and everyone involved is ready I'd personally like to invite the children and the coach to attend a La Liga match" in Spain, president Javier Tebas said in a statement Wednesday. The boys, on average, lost around four pounds each, the AP says.

Thailand's navy SEALs, who played a central part in the rescue effort, wrote on their Facebook page: "We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what".

But it will still be up to a week before all of the boys can hug their mums and dads.

The four boys rescued on Sunday are now eating normal food and walking around, while the four extracted on Monday are being given soft food. The trips to the hospital were mostly due to infection fears.

The rescue mission which spanned days was a success after everyone was rescued.

"His best friend went and sat in his chair and said, "Okay, I'm gonna sit here until he comes back", Carl Henderson, an English teacher at a local school told the news program.

It's emerged three of the trapped football players, as well as their coach, Ekkapol Chantawong, are stateless ethnic minorities.

Thirteen global cave divers joined five Thai Navy SEALs in the unsafe rescue operation.

It was Adul, the stateless descendant of a Wa ethnic tribal branch once known for headhunting, who played a critical role in the rescue, acting as interpreter for the British divers.

French football star Paul Pogba dedicated his country's World Cup semi-final victory over Belgium to "the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong".

The Tham Luang cave complex will remain closed to the public for at least six months, said Chongklai Worapongsathorn, deputy director-general of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation.

He said: 'The important thing is... personal space.
