The last of the Wild Boars football team and their coach were extracted on Tuesday after a unsafe rescue that unleashed joy across the world, and earned the boys celebrity plaudits from France to Brazil.

Several boys can be seen in facemasks and hospital gowns, at least one giving a victory sign for the camera.

The group ventured into the vast cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai after soccer practice on June 23 and were trapped when a rainy season downpour flooded tunnels.

They were found by British divers after nine days, and were eventually rescued days after in an operation that involved dozens of divers and hundreds of other rescue workers.

A large rescue operation got under way on Sunday, with divers extracting the team in batches of four and five over the course of three days.

"We don't see the children as at fault or as heroes".

Mr Volanthen also paid tribute to Thai navy diver Saman Kunan, who died while replenishing oxygen canisters, saying his death brought a "bittersweet" taste to an otherwise "excellent" operation.

Chiang Rai province acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn lauded the cooperation between Thai and global rescuers. "Some of them were asleep, some of them were wiggling their fingers...[as if] groggy, but they were breathing", Navy SEAL Chaiyananta Peeranarong, who helped with the rescue, told the news agency.

The footage came as various outlets reported the boys and their soccer coach were sedated to prevent them from panicking or struggling as divers ferried them through black waters and cliff sides.

Adisak Wongsukchan, the father of 14-year-old Akarat Wongsukchan who was rescued on Monday, said all he wants to do now is give his boy a hug.

"We wish you the best for this very tough time. But they were very cold".

"Pure Flix joins the rest of the world in thanking God for answering prayers for the successful rescue of those trapped in the cave in Thailand", the company said in a statement.

"It was mostly a matter of clambering through mud, which was very tough", Ben Reymenants said.

Harris' colleagues and fellow rescuers lauded his commitment to the mission and how vital his expertise was in bringing the boys out to safety.

Their rescue was particularly treacherous because the boys, aged 11 to 16, had to swim through tight spaces despite having no previous diving experience. In another video, released by the government of Thailand on Wednesday, the boys seem energetic and healthy. It is the co-producer of the upcoming film "Crazy Rich Asians", based on the novel by Kevin Kwan and directed by Chu.

Two production companies are now looking to put together movies about the Thai soccer team rescue.
