First Pictures Of Thailand Children's Football Team In Cave Where They Were Trapped Underground For Nine Days

These are the first photos of Thai schoolboy football players who were rescued after spending nine days trapped underground in a flooded cave.

It was revealed earlier the children, aged 11 to 16, and their coach had been found alive after a rescue mission involving nearly 900 soldiers and emergency service personnel.

The youngsters, from the Wild Boars football team, can be seen with beaming smiles in photos taken by military divers who found them.

The rescue workers can also be seen cheering and relatives even held a mass prayer session after hearing the good news.

The rescue mission began when the boys' bikes and football boots were found at the mouth of the Tham Luang caves, in the northern province of Chiang Rai.

The boys team were trapped by rising waters inside the cave network deep inside a mountain.

Nearly 900 soldiers and rescue workers, including members of an elite military diving unit, were drafted in to search the cave system.

All 12 boys, the youngest aged just 11, and their coach were today found alive, according to the regional governor, and an operation to bring them to the surface has begun.
