"The boys all promised to be a good person and lead a good life to honour him".

"They had already been doing the most extraordinary dives through the cave and laying the very robust rope which made all subsequent dives to the soccer team not only possible, but safe", he wrote.

Richard Stanton, one of a pair of British caving experts who found the boys, gave reporters Friday a first-hand account of the moment he saw them emerge from behind a rock face onto a muddy ledge kilometres (miles) inside the Tham Luang cave.

After their traumatic ordeal deep inside a dark and flooded mountain cave, Thailand's 12 rescued boys and their young soccer coach will now have to navigate a fresh challenge: fame.

Officials at Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital said at a press conference early Saturday the boys are tentatively scheduled to be released on Thursday.

The head of the Thai Navy SEAL diving team involved in their rescue urged the boys to make the most of their lives and "be a force for good". "I would like to thank everyone for supporting us".

The boys' coach thanked "every ministry that helped me" and the prime minister, Thai navy SEALs and the doctors.

Anaesthetist Richard "Harry" Harris was described as "essential" to the rescue operation because of his unique skills and expertise, including 30 years' cave diving experience and his work as a medical retrieval specialist with South Australia's MedSTAR service.

The boy, who was trapped on a muddy ledge without food, added: "I want pork knuckle rice".

A country of 41 lakh people reaching the football World Cup final is surprising news, but Croatia has been a very surprising country in the world of sport.

Inside the freezing cave, the coach and another boy hugged Titun to keep him warm, said his father.

"They should realise that not only have they given a gift to these boys and their families, they've given a gift to every other Australian".

"We are not heroes", he said. "We wish you the best for this very tough time." the post said.

Thousands of people are calling on Dr Harris and Dr Challen to be presented with Australia's highest civilian bravery award, the Cross of Valour, with a change.org petition approaching 40,000 signatures.

The 12 boys and their football coach also watched a recording of the World Cup final. Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop has signalled the government is considering how to formally recognise the Australian team.

Unfortunately due to their prolonged period inside the damp and dark cave tunnel, numerous boys had lost a substantial amount of weight given their young ages, with some of the soccer players having lost as much as 11 pounds.

"The favourable outcome that has been achieved is nearly beyond our imagination when we first became involved in this operation", the pair said in a statement. He also took the opportunity to say he is looking forward to eating KFC once he gets out of the hospital.

Immediately after his death became public knowledge, people around the world began mourning the fearless Navy SEAL member - but no tribute was more touching than the one his wife left him on social media.
