Two other British cave divers who assisted in the mission were John Volanthen and Jason Mallinson.

Her words are likely to give comfort to the 12 boys who were last seen in a recent video that showed them recovering in isolation at the Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital after more than two weeks underground.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Thursday worldwide members of the rescue team would be given a "Thailand Elite" card worth 500,000 baht ($15,000) with benefits including a 5-year visa in thanks.

"After an hour when they wanted to leave, the water level was rising".

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

"Night was very cold but the coach hugged him, teaching everyone meditation to prevent excessive breathing and to not feel hungry".

They were found 10 days later, huddled on a small, dry shelf just above the water, and divers and other global rescuers plotted the complex mission to rescue the team before more rain came.

"We're not heroes", he told the BBC after arriving back in London.

At the first training session since their teammates went missing in a Thai cave, the remaining "Wild Boars" said they can not wait to see their friends back on the pitch.

During a press conference at Heathrow Airport, Mr Stanton declined to answer any medical questions but said: 'They were carefully handled. And then the miracle: they got out.

"We need to prepare both the children and their families for the attention they will receive when they come out", Piyasakol said. "So there was relief, tempered with uncertainty".

"And all this time four courageous Navy Seals sat with the Wild Boars knowing they were in as much danger as the kids".

With them are six Australian Federal Police cave divers, one Defence diver and a support crew who have been described as integral to the rescue operation.

The last four boys and their 25-year-old coach were brought to safety on Tuesday. "I was afraid that he might think I was going to blame him, so I sent a letter of comfort to him in hospital", said the abbot.

The rescue gripped the world, with much praise focusing on the navy SEALs and worldwide team of divers who helped them, toiling for days in unsafe conditions to get the boys out.

Expert divers from the Thai Navy SEALs, experienced in conventional diving situations, were faced with an unprecedented challenge.
