The 12-member "Wild Boars" team and their coach spent more than two weeks trapped inside a flooded cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai. Officials are specifically anxious about any possible mental duress suffered by the team's coach, 25-year-old Ekkapol "Ake" Chantawong, ABC News reported.

Sudden floodwaters forced them to retreat deep into the Tham Luang complex, sparking a desperate hunt that seized the world's attention until they were all safely extracted on 10 July, after a nail-biting three-day mission.

Tributes from Thailand and around the world have poured in for Saman, a triathlete and diver who retired from the military in 2006 and worked at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport before volunteering to help with the rescue in northern Thailand.

But while the group is good health, they still face challenges.

The father of Duangpetch Promthep, or "Dom", cast light on how their survival hung in the balance in the nine days before they were found.

The youngsters bowed their heads in respect to the fearless former navy diver and posed with a drawing of former Petty Officer Kunan at their hospital ward where they are being treated for malnutrition, pneumonia, ear infections and exhaustion.

Photos have been released by the Thai Health Ministry that show some of the boys with their heads bowed around a table with a picture of former Petty Officer Saman on it.

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.
