Boys rescued from cave in Thailand likely to be released Thursday

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Director Will Make Thai Rescue Movie to Avoid Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

A hospital statement said that as the boys continue to recover, they remain susceptible to infectious disease.

The 12 boys and their football coach rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand will watch a recording of Sunday's World Cup final, not the live broadcast, an official at the hospital they are staying in said.

Rescued cave boys and their coach to be allowed to rest, says hospital official.

Doctors said on Saturday that the coach, 25-year-old Ekkapol "Ake" Chantawong, has gained weight quickly and is physically well, but he is the one they are most concerned about protecting from any mental angst. The boys and their families have been instructed to avoid all media exposure for at least one month after they are discharged, out of fear it could trigger post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms.

"They also thanked him and promised to be good boys".

France play Croatia in the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday, at 10pm in Thailand.

They've been receiving medical treatment at a hospital in Chiang Rai.

The boys and their coach were invited to attend the final by world soccer governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association, but they are unable to go for medical reasons.

Trump and USA delegation to bring up election meddling with Putin
The summit will include a one-on-one sit down followed by an expanded bilateral meeting with advisers and a working lunch. The decision comes less than two weeks ahead of a planned summit between U.S.

The 12 boys and their soccer coach who were recently rescued from a cave in northern Thailand have appeared in video messages from their hospital beds, in which they each thanked officials and well-wishers for their help and support.

They have been recovering in the hospital since they were rescued over a span of three days last week and will be discharged Thursday.

The boys and their coach were part of a youth soccer team.

It had been suggested by some that the boys and their coach entering the caves during the rainy season was a reckless decision.

They had spent nine days in the cave with little food or light when British divers first reached them on Monday 2 July.

Doctors say they are in good health following a successful three-day operation which ended July 10 when teams of Navy Seals and global cave diving experts hauled the last five members of the team to safety.

Last week, Manchester United invited the "Wild Boars" to watch a match at their Old Trafford ground.

Around 4,000 volunteers are working to clean up the area around the now-infamous cave, which was battered by relays of rescuers, volunteers and news crews.
