These are the first first pictures of the 12 boys recovering in hospital after being rescued from a cave in northern Thailand where they spent 17 days trapped underground.

The plight of the young football team captured the attention of the world.

The dozen boys and their soccer coach were rescued from inside a flooded Thai cave and lost an average of 2 kg (4.4 lb) during their 17-day ordeal but were generally in good condition and showed no signs of stress, a senior health official said on Wednesday.

The BBC has reported that the boys and coach were heavily-sedated and only semi-conscious for their treacherous journey out of the cave.

This was because, having never dived before, there was considered to be a high risk of panic in the darkness and cold, swirling water of the cave.
