Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong is a Thai public health inspector. Thai doctors said the boys each lost about 2 kilograms, or roughly 4.5 pounds, from the ordeal. "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".

The boys appeared to be in good spirits on Wednesday following their rescue earlier on Tuesday, reports Inside Edition.

Ewan McGregor, a British missionary in the city of Chiang Rai where the boys are now in hospital, said: "It really is a miracle and a result of prayer and I'm just excited to hear the testimonies of the boys when they're safe and well". Some made the two-finger victory sign from their hospital beds.

The boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach were trapped inside the miles-long Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand, on June 23 for almost two weeks.

The parents have reportedly only been able to see their children through windows as they recover.

"They should realise that not only have they given a gift to these boys and their families, they've given a gift to every other Australian". Three of the boys are being treated for minor lung infections.

But he said: "The most important thing to have was a full face mask which had been applied inside with positive pressure to enable them to breathe and to be relaxed enough so not to feel any anxiety during the process".

"Basically I flew from Bangkok to Chiang Mai the next morning, went straight to the staging area at the cave and joined in with the Thai Navy Seals", he said.

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

Former Navy seal Chaiyananta Peeranarong told AFP news agency: "Some of them were asleep, and some of them were wiggling their fingers, kind of groggy - but they were breathing". He ran out of air while trying to swim out of the cave.

Concerns are already being raised on social media that the movie could be "white-washed", focusing more on the global characters while downplaying the role of Thais.

Volanthen and Stanton flew back to the United Kingdom after the rescue - despite the millions of Thai street parties in their honor, according to the report.

But Adun's proficiency in languages - he speaks four - proved key inside the cave, as he acted as translator for the British divers during the complicated rescue.
