The third and final group, including the soccer team's 25-year-old coach, who were all evacuated Tuesday, are taking antibiotics and at least some had lung infections.
Although the boys spent nine days without food and more than two weeks in the dark, damp cave, they seem to be in good health.
Last night a 14-year-old member of the trapped football team was also hailed as a hero.
CHIANG RAI, July 11 -The boys rescued from a Thai cave were passed "sleeping" on stretchers through the treacherous pathways, a former Thai Navy SEAL who was the last diver to leave the Tham Luang complex told AFP today.
The first footage of the boys, aged 11 to 16, convalescing in hospital in the northern city of Chiang Rai emerged on Wednesday, with some, wearing face masks and hospital gowns, giving peace signs for the camera. The real heroes, he said, were the rescuers. "I'm going to give them a hug", he said.

"They are not Thai citizens", Weenat told Reuters, adding that officials were checking to see if they qualified for citizenship. Narongsak offered his "deepest condolences" to Dr Harris, whose father has died.

The doctor said three of the boys were being treated for minor cases of pneumonia, but predicted most would be discharged after about a week. They were all also given vaccinations for rabies and tetanus.
