MAE SAi, Thailand - World leaders, football teams and celebrities have taken to social media to congratulate those involved in the Thai cave rescue. 

US President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister, Theresa May, were among the world leaders welcoming the good news via Twitter.



All 12 players of the "Wild Boars" football team and their coach were brought to safety late on Tuesday.

They'd spent seventeen days in a flooded cave and their daring rescue kept the world captivated. 

A Google search for the words "Thai Cave Rescue" showed nearly 360-million results.



FIFA's invited the team to attend the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday.

But they won't make it.

They're being kept in isolation while undergoing medical tests for another week.
