"Hooyah, Hooyah, Hooyah", the Thai navy SEALs, who worked with an worldwide team of 18 divers to execute the rescue mission, wrote in a Facebook post.

Twelve boys and their football coach who were trapped in a cave in northern Thailand for more than a fortnight have been rescued in an unprecedented three-day mission that had all the features of a blockbuster film. "They are getting forced to do something that no kid has ever done before", Ivan Karadzic, a diver involved with the rescue mission told BBC.

"The 12 Wild Boars and coach have emerged from the cave and they are safe", the Thai navy SEAL unit said on its official Facebook page.

Much of the journey to the cave's entrance was through freezing, muddy water that proved challenging for even the Thai Navy SEAL divers.

The Thai Navy SEALs said they still were waiting on four SEAL personnel to come out of the cave after they stayed with the boys on a dry shelf inside the flooded cave. "We hope for good news in the next few hours", Mr Narongsak said at about 3pm.

Labour MP Chuka Umunna , a strong supported of the campaign, said: "Brexit is turning into an unholy and undeliverable mess". Conservative leading body the 1922 Committee had a meeting to decide the Prime Minister's fate following the resignations.

He said that expert divers who had taken part in Sunday's operation needed to rest at least 20 hours, which would have delayed the start of the second phase to between 8pm and 10pm on Monday.

The story has transfixed the Netherlands - as well as the rest of the world - after the 12 boys and their coach were lost inside the Tham Luang park cave complex more than two weeks ago.

The rescue mission is expected to resume Tuesday morning local time to bring out the remainder of the team.

After pondering for days how to get the 13 out, a rescue operation was launched on Sunday when four of the boys were brought out, tethered to rescue divers.

He also told reporters that the first four boys who were rescued are now able to eat normal food.

George Clooney 'has been injured in a bike accident in Sardinia'
Sardinia is a large Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea and is over 500 miles from Clooney's villa in Lake Como. An ambulance later took Clooney to the nearest hospital, according to Cicognani.

Staff previously said their first assessments would focus on the boys' breathing and signs of hypothermia, as well as a potentially fatal lung infection known as cave disease.

Shortly after the full rescue was announced, President Donald Trump sent a congratulatory message.

It comes after he posted photos from inside the Tham Luang Cave in Chiang Rai on the final day of rescue operations. Technology billionaire Elon Musk went into the cave on Monday and left the rescue team with a "kid-sized" submarine his company SpaceX had built, Thailand's interior Minister Anupong Paochinda said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected".

The disappearance, discovery and rescue of the Wild Boars soccer team has gripped people all over the world.
