But he said: "The most important thing to have was a full face mask which had been applied inside with positive pressure to enable them to breathe and to be relaxed enough so not to feel any anxiety during the process".

Meanwhile, Thai Airways provided roundtrip London-Bangkok tickets to cave diving experts from the British Cave Rescue Council and helped transport their rescue equipment.

The euphoria of the discovery was quickly tempered by the reality of the rescue mission: How would they get a dozen young boys, many who couldn't swim, out of a flooded cave through narrow passageways before another storm raised the water level?

"The section of cave we were in was very rocky and unstable".

The boys were held close to the divers and remained motionless for parts of the journey where they had to dive. The team became captured within a cave in Thailand on June 23 and survived for 18 long days before being miraculously rescued by a fearless group of worldwide divers. I feel good - now it's over.

He thanked the pairs' families for dealing with the media and the "worry we caused them" as well as sending "heartfelt condolences" to the family of former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Gunan who died during the rescue efforts.
