In a risky operation led by the Thai navy Seals, an global team managed to get the boys through a complicated and often narrow exit route.

Officials have not been commenting on the rescue mission as it has been taking place, so it was not clear who had been brought out on Tuesday or what condition they were in.

In an operation that gripped the entire world, all 12 boys and their football coach have been successfully rescued from a cave in Thailand after being trapped for more than two weeks.

The three Royal Thai Navy SEAL divers and medics who stayed in the cave with the boys and coach since they were located on July 2.

They were trapped in the sprawling Tham Luang cave on June 23, when it became flooded by monsoon rains as they were exploring it after soccer practice.

He was taken by helicopter and then ambulance to the hospital in Chiang Rai were the first four boys, who were rescued on Sunday, are now being held in quarantine as they undergo tests. Medical experts say they are in high spirits and generally healthy.

A group of men who had been helping pump water out of the cave for the past two weeks share a meal at a restaurant in Chiang Rai while watching news of the third and final rescue.

The rescued boys are being quarantined in case any of them contracted infections while inside the cave.

President Donald Trump joined those paying tribute to the rescuers.

The boys and their coach are expected to spend at least one week at Chiang Rai hospital for observation and protection against possible infections.

The first three children brought out this morning were treated first in a field hospital before they were stable enough to be transported to a normal hospital, reported the NOS from Thailand. When they arrived at the hospital, a crowd of well-wishers gathered outside, cheering and applauding them just as they had done earlier when the last rescued boys and their coach were driven into the hospital emergency bay.

"The second group of four rescued on Monday are aged 12 to 14".

Thailand's Navy SEALs said on their Facebook page that "the 9th Wild Boar was out of the cave at 4:06 p.m.", referring to the name of the soccer team they are all members of. So far, their families have seen them through a glass barrier. "Such a attractive moment - all freed, great job!"

A message posted on the English Premier League club's Twitter account said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected". Four more, plus the coach, are set to be brought out Tuesday. The English soccer team Manchester United has invited the Wild Boars to visit the Old Trafford stadium in Manchester for a match this coming season, and Kyle Walker, a player for England's national team, tweeted that he was planning to send gifts to the 12 boys.
