The twelve boys and their football coach's ordeal began two and a half weeks ago when they first became trapped in the flooding caves. It took nine days before they were found deep below ground, cowering on a mud shelf.

They finally began to be brought out on Sunday and today we saw the first pictures of them sitting up in hospital, wearing masks to protect them from infection and waving to their parents. More details have also been emerging of how the daring rescue took place.
