One of the American divers involved in rescuing 12 boys from a cave network in Thailand has described the youngsters as "incredibly resilient". They were brought to the surface, along with their football coach, after more than two weeks underground. Two of them have lung infections, but otherwise they're said to be recovering well in hospital.

Meanwhile, an Irish based diver is among those who've been thanked by the Thai Prime Minister for helping rescue 12 boys and their football coach from a cave. The team was trapped for 2 weeks before a major rescue operation was launched involving Thai navy SEALS and international cave divers.
