In the first videos since their rescue after 17 days trapped in a flooded cave, the team waved and made peace signs from their beds as loved ones watched outside the glassed-off room.

Wearing face masks and hospital gowns, the young boys pulled from a Thailand cave this week - an event that spread drama worldwide - are seen waving and smiling Wednesday in their first images after their rescues.

The boys had earlier received an invitation to come watch the World Cup final in Russian Federation, but doctors said they could not go as they were still confined to their hospital beds. NDTV delivers reliable information across all platforms: TV, Internet and Mobile.

Twelve boys and their football coach had no serious health concerns Wednesday morning after the last group of five was successfully rescued from a flooded northern cave and transferred to hospital last night. All of them have higher leukocyte (white blood cell) levels than normal, but they have been given antibiotics to treat any infection.

The 12 Wild Boars players and their coach had entered the cave to go exploring June 23 but monsoon rains filled the tight passageways, blocking their escape.

Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official overseeing the rescue operation, said the boys should not be blamed for their near tragedy.

They are in good physical and mental health, say doctors, despite a harrowing 18 days inside the dank, dark cave before a risky rescue operation that was dubbed "Mission: Impossible".

The extraordinary operation to save the boys came to an end on Tuesday, when the Thai Navy SEAL rescuers and a doctor followed the last four boys and their coach out of the cave complex.

Pure Flix's Managing Partner Michael Scott, who resides in Thailand and went on site during the rescue operation took to Twitter on Tuesday to make the company's announcement on the movie.

"We would like to thank everyone for the messages of support we have received following the successful extraction of the team and Royal Thai Navy Seals from the cave", the statement reads. He said his wife grew up with Samarn Poonan, the former Thai navy SEAL who died during the mission.

Speaking to CNN, an emotional Wongsukchan said he had spent 16 days worrying about his son, and he was "so happy and appreciative" of the rescue effort.

The club said: "Manchester United is greatly relieved to learn that the 12 footballers and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand are now safe. We will open this space as an attraction, a living museum", he said. Jessada also said a psychiatrist was attending to the boys, who are sleeping well and are not showing symptoms of stress.
