JOHANNESBURG - Celebrations are continuing after the rescue of a soccer team and their coach from a flooded Thai cave.
Their nearly three week-long ordeal gripped the world.
The boys and their coach got trapped on June 23 while exploring the cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai after a soccer practice.
A downpour flooded the tunnels.
They were found hungry and huddled in darkness on a muddy bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometres inside the complex.
All 12 boys and their soccer coach were rescued on Tuesday bringing to an end a perilous mission that has gripped the world.
They are now recuperating in hospital.
A teacher from a school where some of the boys attend, spoke to eNCA about the ordeal the Wild Boar soccer team went through.
